Last month, Common, Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins connected under the August Greene banner for a vibrant, soulful Tiny Desk Concert performance at NPR. Now, the three-member supergroup is back with their very first project as a collaborative act.

A self-titled affair, August Greene delivers 11 new tracks, including outside contributions from Brandy and Samora Pinderhughes. As NPR‘s Rodney Carmichael notes, the project embodies the concept of “grown-folk rap,” complete with a “future-minded” edge to excite progressive, forward-thinking listeners for many months and playlists to come. From race relations to other socio-political struggles that have emerged in recent decades, August Greene tackles it all from a blunt, lyrical perspective.

You can stream Common, Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper’s first, self-titled August Greene album at NPR. Today’s release comes fresh off Common’s show-stealing outing at the 90th Academy Awards.
