Legendary genre-bending, multiple Grammy and Emmy-winning artist and producer, Robert Glasper, shares his highly anticipated project, Fuck Yo Feelings. Fuck Yo Feelings is the result of a 2-day session in which Glasper invited musician friends to stop by the studio and organically create together, the final result being this mixtape which sonically documents the lost art of improv and on the spot collaborations that can only come from authentic relationships and true artistry. Glasper’s sound can hardly be defined but is built on his unique blend of jazz, hip-hop and neo-soul.
Fuck Yo Feelings is an inspired update in that lineage, blending the personalities of himself and his collaborators that include a top-tier range of standout artists across different scenes that only Glasper could put in the same room – Yasiin Bey, Herbie Hancock, Andra Day, YBN Cordae, Terrace Martin, Baby Rose, Bilal, Buddy, Denzel Curry, Mick Jenicks, SiR, Rapsody and more. The mixtape will also mark the first time Glasper has re-united and recorded with Chris Dave (featured in Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Drummers of all Time) and Derrick Hodge (bass) in nearly ten years since 2012’s Black Radio, Glasper’s unanimously celebrated album that took home the Grammy Award for Best R&B album in 2013.
Fuck Yo Feelings marks Glasper’s first release of original music under his own name since ArtScience, the Robert Glasper Experiment’s 2016 album, and his debut project on Loma Vista Recordings. Glasper has not only been been a member of other supergroups, including August Greene (with Common and Karriem Riggins) and R+R=NOW ( with Terrace Martin, Christian Scott, Derrick Hodge, Taylor McFerrin, Justin Tyson), but has also played a major role in some of the most important releases of the century, contributing most notably with a major hand in Kendrick Lamar’s critically acclaimed To Pimp a Butterfly and most recently to Brittany Howard’s Jaime, with a laundry list in between that reads like a wish list for most artists.
Glasper begins his month-long residency at the iconic Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City on October 3, running through November 3. The residency will run an unprecedented 56 shows in 28 days, including two sets each night and featuring a variety of performances, including the Robert Glasper Acoustic Trio (feat. Vincente Archer and Damion Reid), tributes to J Dilla, Roy Hargrove, and Stevie Wonder, and the original Robert Glasper Experiment. Glasper will perform alongside Yasiin Bey, Luke James, Esperanza Spalding, Justin Tyson, T3 of Slum Village, and more.
