An Angry Jazzcat

“Even the rap game started out critiquing / Now it’s all about killing and freaking,” Wynton Marsalis rhymes in a preaching style over the closing “Where Y’all At?” off his new album From the Plantation to the Penitentiary. Wynton Marsalis is furious as fuck, especially with hip-hop misogynists. He even granted a space on “Love and Broken Hearts” for a young female vocalist, Jennifer Sanon, to front rappers that she ain’t their bitch or their hoe. In addition to attacking rap music, Marsalis is politicking as usual on “Supercapitalism.” Clearly, he is more interested in getting out the message than making innovative music, which is expectable coming from a moldy fig.
