On this weekend’s episode of The Progressive Underground, I unveil a new cut from the highly anticipated album by Common and Pete Rock, classic material from Paul McCartney that was later reimagined by Erykah Badu, as well as a tune from the late MF DOOM that was repurposed into an amazing track by deep house producer Cody Currie. 

I also slip in gorgeous music offerings from Willow Smith and the Ezra Collective with Yazmin Lacey.
