Music Review: Black Spade- To Serve With Love


Once a member of the St.Louis R&B group Soul Tyde Black Spade’s dissonant keyboard pieces from Worrell world, doleful belting and earnest rapping has pulsed since the ’90s. To Serve With Love is his first proper album hip-hop version 3.0 for a prominent triage of soul, R&B and funk that take sonic favor. Rapping in a pitch part Common, part Q-Tip and a drowsy Busta Rhymes Spade appreciates women, moans about complex love affairs and nonchalantly talks about the brunt of being an emcee. Marching band tromps and harpischord funk keyboards on the half-beat filter the aural environment.
