Understand What Dub Is

Bildergebnis für the last poets

Last year The Last Poets celebrated their 50 year anniversary with a new record with Understand What Black Is. The Last Poets was a collective of musicians and poets formed at the end of the 60's to a black band in the days of civil right movement and afro American values. Their political raps and straight rhythms were rarely heard in Europe but Last Poets had massive influence into Hip Hop. Bristol's Prince Fatty was involved in the works at the album and reworked eight tracks of the album. It is as the title says a dub album with everything you might expect on it. Fresh an political relevant come the songs to our ear. Looking over the Atlantic ocean and the government it seems like The Last Poets march still is not finished.
