American rapper and poet Saul Williams headlines The Last Word Festival with a night of spoken word, with work drawn from album MartyrLoserKing.

Martyr Loser King is working from a remote waste camp in Burundi, Central Africa, with equipment scrapped together from old Dell PC towers. Homeland Security, the NSA and the CIA are tracing his signal back to a place that isn’t on the map. The alert level rises when he hacks NASA just to show he can do it.

MartyrLoserKing is a multimedia project that engages the digital dialogue between the developed world and developing countries, with influences from Beyoncé, Fredo Santana and Haitian field recordings.

Williams has gained global fame for his poetry and writings, having performed in over 30 countries
