Collaboration is a complex concept in the world of hip-hop. In a landscape of overblown individual personas, many of the most creatively fruitful collaborations occur when two distinct artistic voices fuse, resulting in a cohesive yet multi-layered relationship between perspectives and visions.
It is no surprise that long-time collaborators Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins (a.k.a Declaime) are able to complement each other musically-their collaboration extends throughout their lives. The husband and wife duo's newest visual for "Majesty," off of their recent album The Lighthouse, highlights the inseparable connection between the two artistically. Muldrow highlighted that as Perkins' "place in this world as a poet of depth and authenticity" is given weight by her minimalist production aesthetic.

It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the Oakland, California based rap group Souls of Mischief, consisting of Tajai, Opio, Phesto, and A-Plus, released their debut album 93 ‘til Infinity. The album and title track is widely considered a benchmark in the history of hip-hop music and culture not only in the US but worldwide. To commemorate this anniversary, the four-man crew will release a remix of the single “93 ‘til Infinity” featuring an all-star roster of talent (names to be announced this summer.) In addition, they will act as brand ambassadors for a limited capsule collection with iconic fashion and lifestyle brand Ecko, which also turns twenty this year. The celebration will culminate in a nationwide tour where Souls of Mischief will perform classic songs as well as new material.

"Ill Piano is a one of a kind conceptual instrumental album centering around piano melodies and heavy drums composed by the one and only Mr. Green from 'Live from the Streets'. The fourth volume in Green's "Classic Beats" series, this record is different than anything seen or heard in the past because it's the first professional hip hop album that puts the piano in the forefront."
