Adrian Younge
The American Negro
Jazz Is Dead
Catalogue Number
Release Date
February 26, 2021


Jazz, soul, hip-hop; the history of music spearheaded by Black Americans has always been a tool of understanding for Adrian Younge. Having worked alongside hip-hop royalty (Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Wu-Tang) and composed for television shows (Marvel’s Luke Cage, Black Dynamite), Younge has been quietly honing a vast and comprehensive world-view of what racism sounds like in the States, and how it came to be. The American Negro is Younge’s definitive political manifesto, a channel through which the sounds of Isaac Hayes, Marvin Gaye and Gil Scott-Heron flow alongside the liberatory ideas of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, touching upon the myriad ways the past touches the lives of everyday people.
