The Last Poets ~ New album ~ Understand What Black Is ~ Out 18th May


'On the 50th anniversary of the band’s inception at an event in Harlem, NY to commemorate Malcolm X’s birthday on 19 May 1968, influential spoken word artists, poets and commentators The Last Poets are set to make a glorious and relevant return with their first album in over 20 years, ‘Understand What Black Is’. Produced by Ben Lamdin (Nostaglia 77) and Brighton legend Prince Fatty, ‘Understand What Black Is’ is a ten-track album which speaks of a revolutionary struggle defined by both race and identity, that has never sounded more relevant. The new album 'Understand What Black Is" will be released 18th May 2018 by UK label Studio Rockers on double LP and CD.' https://www.youtube.com/w...iXcjCKr6zs

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

^ I like the music, but from The Last Poets I expect more than a nursery-rhyme.

The Last Poets = the rightful forefathers to hiphop acts like Public Enemy, Nas, Common, WuTangClan and others...
