VIDEO: “Burundi” by Saul Williams

“Though they’re often not given the respect they deserve, some slam poets are incredibly talented and able to convey important, socially conscious messages to a pretty large audience. Saul Williams is one of the masters of slam poetry, and has helped shape everything that’s good about the genre,” wrote Vice Online.
And it seems they are not alone in this view. What drew us to this video was this post from Xabiso Vili after he watched it: “GUYS! I’m nothing but tears. My night is made. Ain’t nobody turn a full grown man into a groupie like Saul Williams…”

So, what do you thin of the video?
