"Gratitude" is the eagerly anticipated new solo album from Abiodun Oyewole, the poet, teacher and founding member of The Last Poets.

The album liner notes include an extensive new interview with Abiodun himself, detailing the writing process of the album. Looking back, the Last Poets are often referred to as the godfathers of rap, and by listening to their early recordings; it's easy to hear why. Their words encompass revolution, sex, death, drugs, and Black Power - they own their words.

From their mouths - words are a sense of pride, a statement, and a feeling of empowerment. Now AFAR is proud to present a whole new way of thinking socially, politically, emotionally, and humanly - via the perspective of Abiodun Oyewole of The Last Poets with his new solo album ‘Gratitude’ - it's not a protest album, it's an inspirational album via the inclusive words and God-like voice of Abiodun - this is not an angry man, but an older wiser man - reflecting on his life and spiritual quests.
