The legendary Chuck D just dropped his new solo album "The Black in Man" on August 1, and the lead single and video can now be heard above. Over a knocking track that literally oozes soul provided by the talented team of Divided Souls and DJ Pain 1, Mr. Chuck D's commanding voice and powerhouse flow reminds listener that he's every bit as relevant in today's hip-hop field as he was in 1988. "Give We The Pride" also features a guest apperance from none other than the truly great, Soul legend Mavis Staples who help take this joint to another level... All in all, I'm blown away! The digital EP single includes an additional remix in addition to the B-side "Get it Right or Be Gone" and is available @ RapCentralStation.com. I haven't listened to the actual album yet but if it's in the vein of this cut right here it will likely well end up on the best of 2014 round off. Support @ iTunes.
On a sidenote I also want to remind y'all about Chuck D's 1996 solo debut "The Autobiography of Mistachuck" which is a very overlooked LP so why not take an hour and rewind that. Also available @ iTunes.
