We don't do silence

Portada » Artists » The Last Poets

Before RAP knew its name, there was a group of ambitions young men who reflected the harsh spirit of their times and whose work remains prophetic and inspirational today.

The Last Poets started out in the late sixties, speaking out as few other musical groups had, or have since, about racism, poverty and other African American and societal concerns. Rappers of the civil rights era, The Last Poets’ charge has been taken up by many contemporary artists who have felt the legendary group’s influence.

A new album is being recorded now in Brooklyn under the A&R direction of Tony Thorpe aka The Moody Boyz.
