Menahan Street Band – Make The Road By Walking


Brooklyn based Menahan Street Band is straight funk/soul music and was formed by Thomas Brenneck in 2008, the same year this album was released. The group is comprised of musicians from Antibalas, El Michels Affair, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, and The Budos Band.

Their first single “Make The Road By Walking” was sampled by Jay-Z on “Roc Boys (And the Winner is…)” off The American Gangster album. Other hip hop artist went ahead and sampled a few of their songs.

I cannot stop listening to: Montego Sunset.
