UnEdited: Hanif Abdurraqib

Mini-Series Featuring Tastemakers, Podcasters and Cultural Critics

Hanif Abdurraqib is a poet, essayist and cultural critic. His book Go Ahead in the Rain blended criticism, history, memoir, and poetry to pay tribute to A Tribe Called Quest, and the upcoming A Little Devil in America (March 30) explores how Black performance is woven into American culture. His website, 68 to 05, is mapping the music that shaped him with personal playlists for each year—between 1968 and 2005. He is also the host and creator of Lost Notes: 1980, named one of 2020's best music podcasts by The New Yorker and The Atlantic.

We had an opportunity to chat about Object of Sound, his latest podcast. It centres around topics such as what makes a great cover song? Or what you would include in a future playlist made during a Pandemic? Or Afrofuturism in music today?

Here's the original article that was published at Under the Radar magazine's website. And links directly to Object of Sound and Driving The Green Book—a podcast I mentioned at the end.

UnEdited is our off season mini-series featuring raw tape with Tastemakers, Podcasters and Cultural Critics.

Under the Radar podcast is curently on hiatus. But we will be back next month for Season 2. To get in touch please join our Facebook group. Ask to be a member and I will welcome you with open arms. Or reach me on twitter and instagram.
