Two new tracks (“dont be afraid” and “[bc] tm’s not promised,” presented as one continuous song) have surfaced from the new Knxwledge album 1988, and it’s yet another dose of Knxwledge’s expert blend of hip hop, jazz, psych, and soul.

BUTCHER BROWN – “TIDAL WAVE”

Hip hop-tinged jazz group combine their two loves on this song, which merges Ronnie Laws’ 1975 jazz fusion song “Tidal Wave” with Brooklyn rap trio Black Moon’s 1993 song “Who Got The Props?,” which samples the Ronnie Laws song. “A nod to the OGs Ronnie Laws and Black Moon. Our example of how Jazz and Rap come from the same soul,” the band says.
