Album Art: Your Queen Is A Reptile

Oakland author Dickson Lam, whose award-winning memoir was released in 2017, brings us "My Queen Is Ada Eastman," by Sons of Kemet.

Sons of Kemet is a modern British jazz group with a sound that bounces around with mixes of jazz, rock, carribean folk, hip hop, and more. We recommend listening somewhere you can dance.

Still here, still grinding
Hustling and striving
In these dark times, these dark
Minds I'm a diamond
Big Ben is still chiming
They don't wanna see us smiling
They wanna keep us grimey
But my politics still lively
