Think Fishbone meets Gil Scott Heron as Discopoet Khari B. taps into Chicago’s phenomenally talented arts scene to pull out an assembly of the city’s most outstanding musicians. Bringing Metal fury to an unmistakable Funk feel, together these artists have created a monstrous blend that will push the limits of what is considered Spoken Word with a level of intensity rarely seen in this genre. With all original compositions and a deafening, powerful sound interwoven into some of Khari B.’s most unapologetic, aggressive work ever, this album is sure to go down in infamous notoriety.
