VIDEO: Robert Glasper EPK
Well, if you could assemble a dream cast of hip hoppers for a music project, who would you invite? That's right, who'd be at the top of your wish list?
Robert Glasper must have closed his eyes and clicked his heels because he asked and they came and this project - "Black Radio" - should be powerful. It's this kind of musicianship that attracts even the non-hip hop believers.
Glasper knows what he's doing: and I mean - he knows jazz AND he knew what he was doing when he invited this incredibly talented posse to be on this project. But they also know that he knows his stuff. And by he, I mean the entire group that is The Robert Glasper Experience.
So just WHO am I referring to in terms of collabos on this project:
- Lupe Fiasco
- Erykah Badu
- Mos Def
- Lalah Hathaway
- Chrisette Michele
- Musiq Soulchild
- ...and more
And this is a Blue Note project; they do know a little something about hip hop and jazz, right?
- Oh, and check out this post on The Robert Glasper Experience on NPR
At the end of the day, we win hip hoppers. Big time. Some of your fav lyricists and singers and good music for all. kfox.
