Some may refer to this as “Killing two birds with one stone”. A cool beat-maker by the name of Moods sampled “Move Love” by the phenomenal Robert Glasper.
Lupe Fiasco put me onto Robert years ago with his mention of this song in an interview. Unfortunately, that was the first and last song I listened too, until Black Radio. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, right? well…
Black Radio was the BEST album of 2012.
Robert’s sound has a heavy dose of jazz, soul, and hip-hop, that just about everyone can feel. He even came to Charlotte, NC but due to unnecessary age restrictions, I was unable to witness the epicness that surely went down— I’m still a little bummed about that. If you’re like me and can stare at a computer screen for hours on end and want that live experience, watch his performance at The iTunes Music Festival.
In Honor of Black Radio, Robert Glasper has re-imagined 6 tracks produced by the likes of Pete Rock, 9th Wonder, Georgia Anne Muldrow and appearances by Solange Knowles, The Roots, Black Milk, Yasiin Bey and a few others. The final Black Radio Recovered…Remix, “Dillatude,” will arrive online Tomorrow, Oct. 8, with the full six-track EP being released on Oct. 9 via Blue Note Records. Thanks to a verse from Black Milk this is my favorite track, But you can Listen to the others HERE.
