Common, Robert Glasper & Karriem Riggins Release Their Second ‘August Greene’ Single, “Black Kennedy”
These award winning brothas, Common, Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins, connect once again as August Greene for their second single, “Black Kennedy”.
Between these three artists—Common, Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins—gold and awards just happen to follow them wherever they go. After years of collaborating and creating, this talented trio decided to join forces as the group August Greene.
Titled “Black Kennedy,” August Greene talks that revolutionary talk over smooth’d out production. As longtime friends, this triple threat dynamo (actor, musician and producer) felt that now was the time to release this music as a group. Themes such as optimism and black excellence are meant to imbue black people with a sense of pride and awareness.
Last week, the band released a video for their first effort, “Optimism,” which featured Brandy and was filmed in Jackson, Mississippi during Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Together, August Greene has found a sound that breaks the mold, shatters it completely and create a flame-inducing movement in its place.
August Greene’s debut self-titled album will be released on March 9th via Amazon Original.
