Kool A.D. x Kassa Overall = Kool & Kass - 'Peaceful Solutions' [Album Stream]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Peaceful Solutions also comes with an eclectic and jazz-inflected production palette, tapping beats from everybody from Gordon Voidwell to Amaze 88 (I see your Eddie Harris "Zambezi Dance" flips, sun). On the very first track Kass namechecks: "Fatty Acids / Fatter asses / Santana - Abraxas..." and other things he poetically waxes. It just gets better from there--listen:
