The day after Thanksgiving Friday November 26 there will be two big events that folks will not want to miss.. First we have a special screening of the movie Cointel-Pro 101.. This will be followed with a community discussion featuring Killer Priest of Wu-Tang, Wise Intelligent of Poor Roghteous Teachers, Casual of Hiero and myself.. This is taking place at Madrone Studios in SF starting at 5:30pm..
We chopped it up with Wise Intelligent of Poor Righteous Teachers about the upcoming discussion and concert..taking place Friday Nov 26.. here’s the link to our insightful conversation. Also on the show is Kamel Jacob Bell of Anhk Marketing who is the son of political prisoner Herman Bell http://www.kpfa.org/archive/id/65574
Later that night there will be an incredible concert featuring Digable Planets, Killer Priest, Wise Intelligent and Casual.. This is all going down at Club 6.. Yours Truly will be working the ones and twos
Below is our in depth interview w/ Cee Knowledge of the group Digable Planets.. Here he talks about a variety of topics including the humble origins of the group.. How Ladybug Meca wound up being a 3rd member. He talks about how the group developed its signature sound which many feel was a precursor to the Neo Soul sound that emerged years later..
Cee Knowledge talks about why the group broke up and the role label politics played in downplaying their second album ‘Blow Out Comb‘. We conclude by speaking about the people they hope to work with as they undertake the challenges of working on new material.. Questlove from the Roots wants to be on board.. They would love to work with Shock G of Digital Underground.. Q-Tip is another one they’d like to build with especially since Digable saw the Native Tongues as huge influences..
