If you’ve been anywhere on the internet today, you’d should have easily seen about eleventy-billion posts about our man Robert Glasper and his oh so fancy Experiment’s release of Black Radio. We’re still blinking after seeing the iTunes price of $6.99 – that’s like, basically free.

Yes, the album actually features Erykah Badu, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Shafiq Husayn, Ledisi, and Meshell Ndegeocello, amongst others. No, we’re not kidding when we say the that Black Radio is top to bottom worthy of a sublime stupor.

After dizzying ourselves from running around in circles of excitement all morning, we have now transitioned to the running man in anticipation of the release show at the Highline Ballroom in NYC tonight. And while you’re hating us in our unabashed show-off, do know that you can also gloat by grabbing tickets to tomorrow’s newly added second release show on Wednesday, February 29th.

Also, hats off to Okayplayer for premiering the video for the title track featuring Yasiin Bey! Check it out above.
