Rabbi Darkside – Prospect Avenue (Album Stream) [2Dope Premiere]

blame it on Shake June 17, 2013

After hitting y’all with the intro track this weekend, the Dopehouse is offering Rabbi‘s upcoming Prospect Avenue project for free stream before it drops on all formats tomorrow (in both digital and physical formats).

Prospect Avenue is my new solo album, finished after 2 years of studio work, and ready for international release. These are my stories of teaching, learning and evolving in new millennium Brooklyn: an homage to New York City offered in a time of distress, a love letter laced with co-dependence, a tribute to social and civil servants, a prayer for students and teachers. It is written from the hallways of our public schools, from the stages of shuttered venues, from the expanses of bridges traversed on bicycle, from the bandstand and the cypher. From the front stoop of the house on 18th Street, where I’ve resided for 13 years, I’ve documented the city changing while growing within its confines; journeying to touch distant points on the globe, always returning, culminating with a ride on the R train to Prospect Avenue.

Rabbi is also set to perform in NYC this Thursday to celebrate the release. Click here for details.
