Robert Glasper Experiement feat. Erykah Badu – Afro Blue (Audio) (2012)

Glasper’s music can be described as “experiments with space, rhythm and chord textures”, creating a vast array of sound. He has said that he tries to make the music flow in a way more like a hip-hop beat, trying to always leave the music open for someone to rap over.


It is apparent that Robert Glasper is oozing with talent, as he as most likely worked with your favorite emcee or R&B neo-soul singer, and this single entitled Afro Blue featuring the illustrious Ms. Erykah Badu is just a sample of what we can expect from Glasper for his February 28th release entitled Black Radio. In this introductory single, Glasper and his band do an excellent job playing to Badu’s strengths, matching her signature sound and vibe, which you can imagine is not simple to do. As Glasper has worked closely with Roy Ayers, he is not only familiar with the Jazz fusion sound, he has nearly mastered the musical balance in his songs, and his anticipated release can showcase his skills as his reputation continues to grow as one of the best instrumentalists in the hip hop and contemporary soul genres.
