Hear Prince’s Scorching New Song ‘Deliverance’

Prince unleashes fervent guitar and vocal performance on “Deliverance,” the title-track from a new posthumous EP out April 21st. Deliverance is available to pre-order through digital retailers, while the song can be streamed on Apple Music.

“Deliverance” opens with fierce blues riff before settling into a steady gospel-tinged groove that builds with an increasingly bombastic mix of guitar, organ and back-up vocals. Prince’s vocals are nimble but charged – “You can ease the pain of a few but until God intervenes/ Ain’t nothing, nothing man can do/ Except cause each other injury/ Somebody say, ‘Katrina levees'” – while the musician also unleashes a quintessentially roaring guitar solo.

Prince co-wrote and co-produced the six Deliverance songs with frequent collaborator Ian Boxill between 2006 and 2008. Boxill completed and mixed the songs after Prince’s death last year. Along with the title song, the EP includes a four-movement medley titled “Man Opera” that comprises the tracks “I Am,” “Touch Me,” “Sunrise Sunset” and “No One Else.” The EP closes with an extended version of “I Am.”

The six Deliverance tracks were also written while Prince was working as an independent artist and fittingly the EP will be released via the Vancouver-based indie label, RMA. In a statement, Boxill said, “Prince once told me that he would go to bed every night thinking of ways to bypass major labels and get his music directly to the public. When considering how to release this important work, we decided to go independent because that’s what Prince would have wanted.”

News of Deliverance arrives after search warrants for the singer’s Paisley Park compound were unsealed Monday, providing some insight into the musician’s death from an accidental overdose of the painkiller Fentanyl at age 57. The warrants uncovered controlled substances – primarily painkillers that required a doctor’s prescription – hidden throughout the compound.

Prince Deliverance Track List
1. “Deliverance”
2. “I Am”
3. “Touch Me”
4. “Sunrise Sunset”
5. “No One Else”
6. “I Am” (extended)

Pioneering Rap DJs Stretch and Bobbito Detail New NPR Show

Pioneering New York City hip-hop radio DJs Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia will return with a new NPR podcast this summer. The pair – real names Adrian Bartos and Robert Garcia – teased the new show with a trailer featuring snippets of an interview with El-P from Run the Jewels.

In the clip, Stretch and Bobbito recount their Nineties rise, during which their show on Columbia University’s WKCR became a proving ground and launching pad for MCs like Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Eminem and Busta Rhymes. As El-P says of Stretch and Bobbito’s show, “We looked up to you guys as the most important thing you could possibly do. For rap music, you weren’t ish until that moment.”

While Stretch and Bobbito will continue to discuss and cover hip-hop and music on their new podcast, the pair will also tackle art, politics, sports and more. “It’s a crazy journey we’ve taken from doing a radio show on a radio station in 1990 with a console from the Sixties that had dustballs in it,” Stretch says, before Bobbito adds, “And now NPR.”

A premiere date for Stretch and Bobbito’s NPR podcast has yet to be announced. The show follows a limited-run series the pair produced for Samsung 837 last year.

In 2015, Stretch and Bobbito were the subjects of a documentary, Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives. The duo’s massive archive of shows from the Nineties is also available to peruse on Mixcloud.

Fox News Considers Firing Bill O’Reilly’s After Black Accuser Comes Foward Claiming He Called His “Hot Chocolate”

Bill O’Reilly Accused Of Harassing Black Staffer

Even though Bill O’Reilly seems to have some inherent problem with Black folks, he sure didn’t mind letting his sexual desire for one of the Black employees who worked near his desk for a number of years.

Attorney Lisa Bloom tells The Hollywood Reporter that her client, and African American Fox News clerical worker who would like to remain unnamed, has revealed that O’Reilly would routinely leer at her, make sexual grunting noises, and call her “hot chocolate” when he walked past her desk.

The woman didn’t work directly for O’Reilly, but her desk was near his office, and he passed by her work area with his harassing statements and actions on a regular basis. Bloom says at least three people were able to confirm that the woman was often stressed out and uneasy at the the end of the day.

“He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar. He would leer at her. He would always do this when no one else was around and she was scared.

She’s not asking for any money. She just wants them to know her story.”

Yikes. Well, Fox News is considering not even bringing O’Reilly back after this PR nightmare. But he’ll be fine. There’s an opening over at The Blaze after all…
