Fusing politically outspoken lyrics with inventive percussion, The Last Poets grew out of the civil rights movement in the late 60’s.

Modern day riots, with withering attacks on everything from racists to government to the bourgeoisie, their spoken word albums preceded politically laced R&B projects such as Marvin Gaye's What's Going On and foreshadowed the work of hard-hitting rap groups such as Public Enemy and remain as politically charged today.

Their 1970 album The Last Poets, is considered the first hip-hop album of all time, and in 1971, their album This Is Madness, landed them on President Nixon’s Counter-Intelligence Programming list. This rare London performance is one to be treasured by all fans of hip-hop and spoken word alike.
