Love The Purity of Silas

Where the art be at?
Like all cultural objects, a work of hiphop is made up of two parts: one that is artistic, and one that is not artistic. A hiphop work that is dominated by the non-art part has commercial interests; one that is dominated by art has creative interests. This year, the local hiphop record that has the most art in it is Silas Blakís Silas Sentinel, which was released this summer and is hard to find. But if you go to this Zulu Radio Live hiphop event, which happens tomorrow and features Silent Lambs Project (Blak and Jace), you will certainly find the purest hiphop record of 2007.
