Jean-Yes’s rework version of the famous hit “Not In Our Name” is a masterpiece. Besides, Saul Williams himself considers it to be an essential tribute to his pledge of resistance : “I knew Jean-Yes as a talented tourguenist writer, and as an inspired DJ ; but I thought he was above all an ingenious joker, a kind of brilliant impostor, you know what I mean… I never regarded him as a real artist. Until I heard « The Activist ». In fact, he is a joker – but he’s also an exceptional music performer, and his commitment to the resistance is exemplary. This guy is amazing.”
