Label: Stax

Release date:

This dark masterpiece combines the lush orchestral arrangements of Isaac Hayes collaborator Dale Warren with Blaxploitation-style funk grooves, resulting in a sound that would rocket it to cult-classic status among DJs and producers who have sampled it for tracks by Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Digable Planets, Dr. Dre, and many others.

About the artist

An american soul collective stemming from Ohio, 24-Carat Black served as the brainchild of Dale Warren. With themes and subjects that erratically alter from song to song, Warren wrote about everything from emotional toil to racial tensions boiling over from the civil rights movement.
