Welcome to A Month full of reminiscence
February has more celebrations than December: In Hip Hop, we celebrate Black History Month, Dilla Month and Valentine’s Day.
Black History Month
February is African History month and just in time, India. Arie published her latest album “Worthy” with a beautiful ode to African-American heroes:
The full album will be released on February 15 and if you can’t wait for more of India. Arie – like me! – go check out her Podcast Songversation where she talks in detail about her songs, new and old. I love it and it has inspired me to start a Songversation Podcast Series with Tansy Davis from Episode 2 of The Healer Hip Hop Podcast soon!
February is also Dilla Month, celebrating the Life & Achievements of a Detroit Legend who was born on February 7.
J Dilla has produced a lot of the songs of the artists I listen(ed) to, such as Busta Rhymes, The Pharcyde, Erykah Badu, Common, De La Soul, Guru, Slum Village and many more.
My favorite track of his is and has always been The last donut of the night, so you’ll find that on the Playlist.
Lastly, the thing we celebrate in February that I care about least is Valentine’s Day. André 3000 best describes my feeling towards this day, so that one HAD to be on this month’s playlist 😀
