You’ll probably see it as you read through the track list:
“FRIDA.” “EARTHA.” “MILES.” “MUDDY.” “BASQUIAT” alongside “SUN RA.” “OCTAVIA” next to “BALDWIN.”
It’s not simply the names’ familiarity that may strike a chord. These are individuals who have made an impact upon humanity, great minds who forged a path, a different way of thinking to move forward. Chicago-based artist Jamila Woods‘ second LP, LEGACY! LEGACY!, honors the inspirational figures who came before her. Each track is a thoughtfully crafted homage to the activists, the artists, the visionaries and the voices that shaped her own identity.
