The Last Poets – Last Poets – Vinyl Record
The Last Poets are a pioneering American spoken-word and poetry group formed in the late 1960s. Their self-titled debut album, The Last Poets, was released in 1970 and is considered one of the foundational works of hip-hop, rap, and spoken-word poetry.
The Last Poets used their music and poetry to address issues of civil rights, social justice, Black empowerment, and the African American experience. Their powerful and politically charged spoken-word performances, often accompanied by percussion, made a significant impact on the cultural and political landscape of the time.
Key tracks from The Last Poets album include “Run, Nigger,” “When the Revolution Comes,” and “On The Subway.” These tracks are known for their confrontational and thought-provoking lyrics, challenging systemic racism and inequality.
The Last Poets’ self-titled album is considered a landmark in the history of spoken-word and political poetry, and it is often cited as a precursor to the emergence of hip-hop and rap music. Their influence can be heard in the socially conscious lyrics and rhythmic delivery of later hip-hop artists and poets.
“The Last Poets” album remains a powerful and relevant work, with its messages of activism and empowerment still resonating today, making it a crucial part of the broader history of African American art and political expression.
