Product Details
Description
Intoxicated by the city that nurtured The Meters, Professor Longhair, the Neville Brothers and Dr. John, the five-piece future-funk outfit Galactic has made New Orleans their home since the early '90s. Over the course of six albums and countless live shows Galactic has built a rabid following, thrilled by the band's progressive marriage of two schools of New Orleans street music, as old school brass band grooves meet bounce style hip-hop. From The Corner To The Block finds the ever evolving quintet continuing to test the waters of what funk can be, collaborating for the first time on CD with some of the most important MCs of our time. The Coup's Boots Riley, Lyrics Born, Juvenile, Jurassic 5's Chali 2na, Digable Planets' Ladybug Mecca, Mr. Lif, Blackalicious' Gift of Gab, and others were asked to approach their rhymes with one uniform concept: corners. Inspired by New Orleans' evocative street names, Galactic asked their collaborators to imagine intersections of history, mythology and multiple ethnicities; the result is greater than the sum of its estimable parts, a tribute to the music and culture of America and its great cities.
