Veteran MC Del the Funky Homosapien has been working on his long-awaited second album with Deltron 3030, but in the meantime, he has teamed with underground group Parallel Thought for Attractive Sin. On "Bring It," Del defty wraps his flow over a fuzzy, groovy, meandering beat. Though "Bring It" doesn't appear on Sin, the track is a funky, hazed-out preview of what's to come.

"The beat comes from an album we did for the Numero Group last year called Eccentric Breaks & Beats Vol. 2," says Knowledge of Parallel Thought. "It contains a sample from the ridiculously slept-on album Gone: The Promises of Yesterday by 24 Carat Black. Would have loved for this track to have made the album, but it was too late." Attractive Sin will be available June 19th, but you can hear this sneak peak now.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
