One can’t really call The Saturday Knights a rap group. Yes, there are lyrical stories delivered by group members Tilson and Barfly, and DJ Suspense has programmed some fairly sharp beats, but Mingle their latest album, is more classic rock than golden-era hip-hop, or perhaps just an amalgamation of the two. Where else would you find soulsters The Dap Kings on the same release as Kim Thayil, the guitarist for early ’90s grunge outfit Soundgarden? Add Nirvana producer Jack Endino playing drums on a song and well, we’re not really sure what to call this release, so peep this track and decide for yourself. Photo by Hilary Harris.
