Watch: Ali Shaheed-Muhammad Speaks On Concept Album With Adrian Younge


You can’t understate Ali Shaheed-Muhammad’s musical genius. A founding member of A Tribe Called Quest and of Lucy Pearl, the Brooklyn producer and rapper has contributed so much to the culture.

And he’s not resting on past laurels. In fact, Ali speaks on his next endeavor: a new concept album with Souls of Mischief and producer Adrian Younge.

The good folks at Okayplayer sat Shaheed in the hot seat to pick his music mind as part of their The Questions series, asking everything from his favorite soul sample to Michael vs. Prince. Check out the video—and more on his collaboration with Younge—above.
