i first heard of robert glasper because he’s part of my sister’s larger circle of musician friends. he’s got an amazing album, double booked out, and has done some really outstanding arranging and producing on some of my sister’s recordings, but until recently that’s all i’d heard. [sometimes i live under a rock, ha.]
listening to rap with robert glasper by patrick jarenwattananon for npr is a really great sit-down & listen through some standout moments in rap & hip hop history with 2 guys who have loved the genre for years, exploring both of their takes on what each song has meant. take a break & enjoy.
