Taking a break with krooning rap without attitude

Raheem DeVaughn, a “neo-soul” singer from Washington D.C., who was at Tokyo’s Cotton Club, delivers music that’s a tribute to R&B of past generations, and the lyrics/rap of his group is powerful poetry.
Absent is the “gangsta” attitude of some hiphop.
Instead there’s plenty of hippie love … and allusions to great African American music of the past.
DeVaughn is the son of jazz cellist Abdul Wadud.
Well-behaved rap isn’t the oxymoron it seems it would be with DeVaughn’s The Love Experience.
