SaulPaul steals the show [- Hide ]
SaulPaul was invited to participate in one of the premiere artistic events in Austin, TX – The Hip Hop Theatre Explosion – and he stole the show with an awe-inspiring performance.
The reviewer is quoted as saying, “With a performance truly unlike any you have seen, SaulPaul interacts with the crowd, stopping the tune here or there to tell you a little of his past – from the foster home, to the University, to the pen and back. When freestyling, “This is not just hip-hop, this is real art,” he said, speaking for every artist in the room.

Self Proclaimed Cool Looking Black Guy
SaulPaul has charisma. And his stage presence is so magnetic, he can work any crowd. It’s one reason, his unique mash up of hip hop and singer/songwriter music connects with and moves every audience he stands before. The review reads as follows…

He’s a disarming raconteur. He finished with improvised spoken word; as the audience shouts out words, he writes them on his arm, then turns them into hip-hop poetry. (Off the cuff, he matched “banana” with Tony Danza and “swelling” with cerebellum.)
