Bilal Salaam "Another Chapter"

The enigmatic Bilal Salaam steps forward with this killer tune built from a killer concept; taking inspirations from four different legends of four different genres that he loves & flipping those elements into this short but sweet & bumping track. Clocking in at just under two minute, "Another Chapter" grabs elements, melodies & lyrics from legendary Tony Williams "There Comes A Time" (jazz fusion), Wu Tang Clan's "Tearz" (hip hop), Barbara Streisand's "The Way We Were" (pop standard vocal classic) & Wendy Rene's "After Laughter" (Stax, 60's northern soul). This is why I consider him to be one of the most underrated geniuses of our generation.
