This song is the title track from Mayfield's 1972 soundtrack album for the film of the same name. It reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #5 on the Best Selling Soul Singles chart. The lyrics celebrate the craftiness and determination of the film's main character -- the song plays over the film's closing credits. This track has been sampled widely, from the Beastie Boys' "Egg Man", The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Ready to Die Intro", Goldie Lookin Chain's "Pusherman" and Nelly's "Tilt Ya Head Back" featuring Christina Aguilera. Mayfield himself sampled the original song in "Superfly 1990", a duet he recorded with rapper Ice-T. https://bit.ly/3oNLn2k

“Hijo de la Rebeldia” is a new song by Ana Tijoux with the Spanish rapper Valtonyc, the Chilean singer Masquemusica, and the South American DJ producer, Cidtronyck. The Chilean MC dedicates this single to the whole world, as a cry of optimism and discernment, "to build perspective without ever losing that rebellion as a result of the search for justice. (...) A song (...) for life and for the children of our children, to clothe ourselves with the beautiful rebellion that is nothing more than the consequence of the thirst for conscience”. https://youtu.be/HB49jxJPayw

Makaya McCraven's new remix album dropped in November -- the latest single remakes a deep cut from trumpeter and composer Kenny Dorham's 1961 album 'Whistle Stop', featuring Hank Mobley on tenor saxophone, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. McCraven’s new version layers on his own drums and also features Jeff Parker on guitar, Joel Ross on vibraphone, and Junius Paul on ceramic bird(!) https://bit.ly/3pFcUFr
