The Last Poets Interviewed for WhoSampled

The Last Poets Interviewed for WhoSampled

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global interview chart, 28th in the global funk chart and 34th in the global jazz chart.

After a brief hiatus, the WhoSampled interview podcast is back. For the latest edition, we're very pleased to have spoken with Abiodun Oyewole and Umar Bin Hassan of the group the Last Poets, whose fusion of rhythmic poetry, jazz, funk, percussion and more broke new ground in the late 1960s and paved the way for the emergence of what we now know as Hip Hop. With a new album titled ‘Transcending Toxic Times’ featuring the likes of Ursula Rucker and Malik B of the Roots released this month, we talk here about the Poets’ history in music, the politics that surround it and the inspirations behind the group's new material.
