Rabbi Darkside Takes You To Prospect Avenue
Tuesday, July 09, 2013

It’s been five years since Rabbi Darkside’s last official solo release, Building the Better Bomb. During that time, however, the Brooklyn, NY, emcee/beatboxer/educator hasn’t exactly been taking it easy. Having released his Dark Side of 2009, and Dark Side of 2010, mixtapes, along with the Skillz To Take Brazil compilation, and pouring two years of effort into a hip-hop based test prep program called Fresh Prep, for which he recorded four full length albums in four different subjects, he’s been a busy man.

Due, in part, to working on so many different projects, Rabbi Darkside says when it came to following up 2008’s Building the Better Bomb, he was in no rush. “It was something I wanted to take a lot of time with,” he explains, “and be patient, and have way more tracks than I needed in the vault before deciding what fit the bill, and what the story of it was gonna be, and which songs really had the staying power to be a part of this project.”

After spending two years on the creative aspects of the album, and one year in the studio, Rabbi Darkside’s first official solo release in half a decade, Prospect Avenue, was ready to go. Last month he celebrated the national release of the album, and this week we caught up with Rabbi Darkside to find out more about Prospect Avenue, from the music, to the cover art, the latter having quite the family connection. The former MTV Made beatboxing coach also discussed his numerous international travels, and why there’s a good chance he’ll turn down any offer of a herring sandwich.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
