The Saturday Nite Agenda
A cast of underground soul and hip-hop names have come together to create something larger than the sum of its parts. The Saturday Nite Agenda is a meticulously compiled mix of streetwise gangsta rap and sleazy soul funk tackling inner-city violence and social protest.
Musically, Soul Supreme is a backwards-looking affair that avoids sounding anachronistic. It’s a party album with contemporary, dark undertones (at times evoked by the chilling “pop” of gunplay that tend to drown out the music). While it does overstay its welcome, incessantly repeating itself without adding much to the established framework, The Saturday Nite Agenda still succeeds remarkably well where most similar albums fail miserably.
