Don Was - Black Bottom Collective - "L-O-V-E"

0 0

Black Bottom was an African-American neighborhood near Downtown Detroit where, in the late 40's and 50's, artists like John Lee Hooker helped spawn the local rythm and blues sound. Although firmly rooted in hip hop, BBC does not need loops and samples to establish an authentic R&B groove - they are a timeless live funk band. Leader Khary Turner is also a highly regarded journalist and his literary prowess elevates their lyrics to poetic heights. For my money, they are one of the hippest bands in this or any city
