Sister Rosetta Tharpe Sister Rosetta Tharpe (March 20, 1915 – October 9, 1973) was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist and recording artist. A pioneer of mid-20th-century music, she attained popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with her gospel recordings, characterized by a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and rhythmic accompaniment that was a precursor of rock and roll. She was the first great recording star of gospel music and among the first gospel musicians to appeal to rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll audiences, later being referred to as "the original soul sister" and "the godmother of rock and roll".[1][3][4][5][6] She influenced early rock-and-roll musicians, including Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis.[5][7][8] Childhood and early career[edit] Most sources state that she was born Rosetta Nubin in Cotton Plant, Arkansas, to Katie Bell Nubin and Willis Atkins, who were cotton pickers.

R&B, Soul, Funk, and Social Consciousness | African-American Images As the 50s became the 60s, African-American musicians who worked in R&B and Soul struggled to break out of the Chittlin’ Circuit, that small network of African-American clubs and theaters that spanned the South and the urban North. While some musicians found great success others saw their success “taken” from them by white performers. The 1960s also saw the rise of Black-owned media and the increasing centrality of social consciousness to African-American music. A good place to start this discussion will be to look at the differences between Northern and Southern music. Compare this with Otis Redding’s version. We can see the differences between Stax and Motown when we look at what happens when a Motown artist covered Otis Redding. Southern artists also covered northern artists. Sam Cooke shared a gospel-inspired aesthetic and social consciousness with another Chicago performer, Curtis Mayfield. Last week we looked at the appropriation of Rock & Roll by white performers.

Jazz Discography Project The Protest Movement: The 10 Best Political Protest Songs of the 70s This 1978 single by The Clash, also appeared on US versions of their 1977 debut album (which wasn't released in the States until 1979). This is just one of many socially conscious protest songs by The Clash that could of been considered for this list. The Band was also involved with the UK "Rock Against Racism" protest movement, and their feelings towards racism was heavily reflected in their music. "(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais" tackles many weighty issues such as anti-violence, race relations & wealth distribution. The song also protests the mainstreaming of punk rock: "Turning rebellion into money" and it takes aim at the social decline in the UK: "If Adolf Hitler flew in today, they'd send a limousine anyway." For a 4 minute song it really does cover a lot of ground.

10 queer rappers you should be listening to instead of Eminem In recent weeks, critics have rightly lambasted Eminem for the homophobic content of his latest album, “Marshall Mathers LP 2.” The rapper has been criticized in the past for continuing to using the word “faggot” in his music, and on the recently released “Rap God,” he also uses “gay-looking” as an insult. However, Slim Shady defended himself last week in an interview with Rolling Stone, in which he states that those words mean something different to him. “Gay” doesn’t denote “homosexual;” he claims it’s more like “calling someone a bitch or a punk or asshole.” So instead of giving him more attention, here’s another solution: Stop listening to him. Angel Haze At just 22, Angel Haze has already released six mixtapes, recording since the age of 18. Recommended Track: “Cleaning Out My Closet,” an Eminem cover that vastly improves on the original by queering up the joint. Azealia Banks Claiming she’s the “female Kanye West,” Azealia Banks is just as outspoken as she is talented. Big Dipper Le1f

Magazine Right On! Classic Political Hard Soul-Funk Albums, Singles & LP-Tracks Sly & The Family Stone There's a Riot Goin' On (1971) Simply the greatest single album I have ever heard. This is Sly Stone's magnum opus, and it's straight out off a cocaine-induced hell of paranoia. Muddy sounds, warped lyrics, eerie guitars, droning organs, sinister bass, and that unforgettable tired, tired voice. This is as raw as an exposed nerve... The stage is set with the sardonic "Luv & Haight", a messy mixture of rumbling basslines, fatback drums, hints of brass and a world weary Sly Stone proclaiming he feels so good, he doesn't need to move. The pace slows down considerably with the drug hazed, ultra paranoid future blues of "Just Like a Baby", on which Sly and his buddy Bobby Womack moan, weep and testify while a plodding bass and spooky Hammond organ unnervingly carry on behind them. Before you know it, you feel like you've been dumped at an abandoned station where a tired, beaten up locomotive is trying to gather up momentum. "Time" is where it all collapses...
