August Greene (Common, Robert Glasper, & Karriem Riggins) Drop “Black Kennedy” – Listen Here!
Golden Globe, GRAMMY, Academy Award winning activist, actor and artist Common, four-time GRAMMY Award winning pianist/producer Robert Glasper, and drummer/producer extraordinaire Karriem Riggins released the second single “Black Kennedy” from their new group August Greene. The band’s self-titled debut album will be released as an Amazon Original on March 9th.
“For many people the Kennedy family symbolizes royalty and represents power, style, and influence,” Common says. “And I thought if I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna do it in a black way.”
“The process of creating this song gave me chills,” says Riggins. “It is a theme that represents royalty and brilliance. It also has J Dilla’s influences, and it reminded us of the great times spent with him creating music.”
“‘Black Kennedy’ is a song close to my heart,” Glasper adds. “It is a song of motivation, inspiration, perseverance and black excellence.”
