Mary Anne withhip hop legends Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge. The pair will be popping by our Salford studio to chat about their current tour and happiest moments from their illustrious careers.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad is a founding member of A Tribe Called Quest and Adrian Younge has worked with a long list of legends, which includes the likes of Jay-Z, Ghostface Killah, Wu Tang Clan and Talib Kweli. Together the duo are bringing their new live project, which features a 9-piece brass and string section, to the UK for the first time.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge began their work together in 2013 on the critically acclaimed Souls of Mischief record 'There Is Only Now' and continued their collaboration on Kendrick Lamar’s 'untitled unmastered' albums. Their partnership was cemented on their music score work for Marvel’s Luke Cage.

Their new project The Midnight Hour is inspired by the sonic aesthetic of Luke Cage and is also an ode to the cultural sophistication of the Harlem Renaissance that occurred in New York in the 1920s.
