Collaborations That Never Were
What if Marvin Gaye and Yasiin Bey made an album? Ever wondered what a Fela Kuti and De La Soul collaboration would sound like? The Soul Mates Project traces the roots of hip-hop and the history of music by imagining “collaborations that never were”. Established by producer Amerigo Gazaway and brother, Rickey Mindlin, the Soul Mates Project is a creative platform for unique collaborations spawned through music, visual arts and multimedia.
BB & The Underground Kingz
The Trill Is Gone
Under the Soul Mates Project banner of “collaborations that never were,” Amerigo Gazaway’s latest imagines a recording session between Blues great, BB King, and Texas rap legends, UGK. Aptly titled “BB & The Underground Kingz: The Trill is Gone,” the producer seamlessly bridges the gap between hip-hop and its predecessor, the blues.
