Rabbi Darkside – Prospect Avenue | Album Stream

Brooklyn-based rapper, DJ and beatboxer Rabbi Darkside unleashes some audio dopeness with his new conceptual album, Prospect Avenue.

A project two years in the making, “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,” he explains.

“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.”

Spinning verses over a range of jazz inspired Hip Hop breaks, Darkside brings his nostalgic, live Hip Hop presence to the 15 track project which boasts guest appearances from underground favourites Homeboy Sandman, DJ Rob Swift plus production credits from Black Moon’s Da Beatminerz.
