If you ask any rapper, producer, or a Hip Hop junkie, what the ideal sound they would like in their favorite music, they would say “the New York sound”.
If you are one of those three people, then you NEED to listen to Rabbi Darkside.
After looking up The Extremities and Them Crunchy Kids, on the CMJ Hip Hop Charts, I had to follow that road of great music, which is where I found Rabbi Darkside.
He’s got a new album out, called “Prospect Avenue”, of which it was funded through Kickstarter. Here’s how he describes the album:
These are my stories of teaching, learning and evolving in new millennium Brooklyn: an homage to New York City offered in a time of distress, a love letter laced with co-dependence, a tribute to social and civil servants, a prayer for students and teachers.
It is written from the hallways of our public schools, from the stages of shuttered venues, from the expanses of bridges traversed on bicycle, from the bandstand and the cypher.
From the front stoop of the house on 18th Street, where I’ve resided for 13 years, I’ve documented the city changing while growing within its confines; journeying to touch distant points on the globe, always returning, culminating with a ride on the R train to Prospect Avenue.
“See Something, Say Something” is my favorite track off this album. Take a listen below, and let me know what you think.
