Later this week Robert Glasper will release Fuck Yo Feelings, a collaborative effort that he’s calling a mixtape. Fuck Yo Feelings comes from a two-day studio session. Glasper invited rappers, singers, and jazz players to come through for improvised, organic collaborations, and he put together a hell of a guest list. The mixtape features contributions from Yasiin Bey (the former Mos Def, a longtime Glasper collaborator), Denzel Curry, Rapsody, Herbie Hancock, Terrace Martin, YBN Cordae, Bilal, Andray Day, and Mick Jenkins, among many others. The man got Herbie Hancock and YBN Cordae on the same song. That’ll be something to hear.
The new record is scheduled to coincide with another Glasper residency at the Blue Note. This time, he’s playing at the legendary jazz club for a full month — 56 shows in 28 days. That stretch, which starts the day Fuck Yo Feelings comes out, includes shows with Yasiin Bey and Esperanza Spalding, and it’ll also include tributes to J Dilla, Stevie Wonder, and Roy Hargrove. – READ MORE via Stereogum
