“For The Wicked” feat. Rakaa (Dilated Peoples)


New Orleans and Cali unite on this onslaught of gris-gris funk from Connie Price & Keystones featuring legendary MC, Rakaa Iriscience, of Dilated Peoples.

The Crescent City label, Superjock Records puts forth another gem in the ongoing NOLA Breaks series (V.12)… This time around they’ve enlisted the multi-talented Jay “J-Zone” Mumford on the drums (Black Thought/Danger Mouse, Adrian Quesada), Dan Ubick on guitar (Breakestra, Big Daddy Kane), Julius Augustus on bass (The Sandollars), Dan Hastie on organ (Orgone, Alicia Keys), Steve McCormick on dobro and Professor Shorthair on the cuts and edits. Mastered by Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Madlib).

“The soundtrack to keep the wicked in flames” in both words and sounds, this 45rpm will leave you equally angered by the wrongs of the past but with a dip in your hip as you saunter through Congo Square!

Produced, recorded and mixed by Dan Ubick for DanUbe Productions at Lions Den Studios, Topanga, CA.
