The Last Poets' Understand What Black Is. Available here on 180 Gram Double LP.
Understand What Black Is speaks of a revolutionary struggle defined by both race and identity, that has never sounded more relevant. The group secured a legacy with seminal early records that came to be regarded as important influences on early hip hop, helping to pave the way for many socially committed emcees. Into the '90s, their tracks were sampled by Biggie, NWA, A Tribe Called Quest, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. While they remained largely on hiatus, original members Umar bin Hassan and Abiodun Oyewole committed to recording new material in 2016. The strong and contemporized voices of The Last Poets is aided by the UK production duo of Ben Lamdin (Nostaglia 77) and Prince Fatty, known for their work in acid jazz, reggae and dub productions.
