The Black Opera – “African America” (Album Stream)


Mannnn! The Black Opera had this recorded and well in the can before the election. But they are so on-the-head with this “African America” album and commentary therein. Check out what they had to say about it.

At its core, “African America” is the story of a people that feel lost, a people that don’t feel welcome in their place of birth. This is where Black Americans currently exist, a place where the laws and law enforcement don’t seem to serve or protect them. “African America” can be viewed as an actual plea to build a new home, or just to relocate mentally.

“African America” is the promised land of freedom.

Below is a link to cop, and a FREE stream if you need more to be sure…


The Black Opera -“Black Woman Is God” (Prod. By Magestik Legend)

Screen Shot 2016-10-16 at 2.09.05 PM

So often people will criticize mainstream artists for all saying the same things and sounding alike. Here at we rather focus our energy on what we enjoy rather than destroy. The Black Opera always pushing the creative boundaries are back with a new single Black Woman is God. Produced by Magestik Legend this is Black empowerment set to a grooving beat. TBO has a new album titled African America dropping November 11th.

What came first? The Chicken or the egg. The African or indigenious Native American. What came first the chicken or the egg? A Tribe Called Quest or A Wu Tang Clan.

The Black Opera – “Sacred Cow”

TBO, The Black Ops or you can just say The Black Opera it all equates to brothers and sisters making quality music and not getting stuck to the same thing.  TBO constantly puts out content right now Majestik Legend has a new solo album out titled Legend Has it.  Then look at the fact TBO member Jamall Bufford just released a single titled Summer after Summer.  Well they got back together and introduced us to some new voices for the latest single Sacred Cow.  Majestik Legend, Jamal Bufford, Obie Iyoha, and introducing Johnny Void the whole gang gets busy on a self produced track.


In an era where the idea of justice remains in question, these questions linger as well: Who can you trust? Who can you believe in? Those questions apply to “the system” and to rap music in 2015. “Sacred Cow” is The Black Opera’s way of answering those questions.

The Black Opera – “Beginning Of The End” feat. Georgia Anne Muldrow (Prod. By Tall Black Guy) [Video]

Oh yeah. TBO is the way you get things started. Your day. Your week. Hell, make it “The Great Year” (album link below). Mind-body exercise with Georgia Anne Muldrow taking us to breaks; over a beat banged out by Tall Black Guy. Deep dopeness…

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.

The Black Opera enlist the Queen Georgia Anne Muldrow to reinforce the multilinear concept of the beginning and the end. This songs nuance stands for power, rebirth, triumph, completion, and exultation. It is TBO’s audible Alpha and Omega.”

The Black Opera – Fxckin Problem (Video)

The Black Opera hit us off with something new. Been checking for them for a while now; with good reason. Work like this keeps us on edge, conscious, affected. It’s what art is supposed to do. Hip-Hop… art. Respect to The Black Opera for this latest piece of art – and visual dramatization – a “Fxckin Problem” (and it is…just watch).

‘In times like these, Dark Comedy is no laughing matter. So with all jokes aside, we wanted to put a satirical spin on A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problem” in order to address current events and issues. Events and issues that include the school shooting in Connecticut, gun control, mental health, and America’s prescription drug addition amongst others. RIP to everyone that lost their lives in the Newtown, CT school shooting and the innocent lives lost everyday in these streets and around the world.’
