Ali Shaheed Muhammad more or less never dissapoints, from his days in A Tribe Called Quest, to his outside remixes and his productions, and his soul days in Lucy Pearl he's easily one of the most interesting DJ:s and producers in al of hip-hop. I'm not sure if he's working on a new project or if this is just a loose single but his new single "CPR" is a real ill hip-hop song both from a lyrical and musical standpoint. Ali himself opens the song while Tenesee's JaPoet, Georgia's David Luke and beautiful voiced singer Merna (previously known as Ayah) whose album "The Calling" (don't sleep on this great soul/R&B album) was entirely produced by Ali Shaheed. The track is not only a strong piece of music but is also a response to the bubling tension between the black young americans and the police.
