D’Angelo has announced the release of his new album, Black Messiah, the long-awaited followup to his epic album Voodoo, released nearly 15 years ago. Black Messiah credited to D’Angelo and the Vanguard. The album will debut this Sunday at a New York City listening session. Thank you Consequence of Sound for pointing me towards the short teaser video for Black Messiah. Watch it below:
Consequence of Sound also found photos of the packaged album on Twitter.
“Strung Out” is a dope track from Albany, NY’s J-Nice; a rugged, raw, and gifted MC that has a knack for smooth word play. J-Nice and featured artist YZ use lyrics to tell a story and suggest methods for dealing with the pain of heartache and loss. RA-Blaze, a veteran producer out of Long Island, NY and member of Innovative Grind Music Group’s Team Innovation, produced this banger track reminiscent of Havoc, 9th Wonder, and old Kayne. Enjoy.
