It’s the return of M-illa-tant! Roots alum Malik B was featured in Noisey TV‘s Live From the Streets video series yesterday, making his first appearance in a solo music video (and releasing his first rap since 2008’s Rising Down). In the video, beatmaker Mr. Green and director Sam Lipman-Stern visit Rittenhouse Square to chat with traveling street musician Kevin Brown, make a backing track from one of his songs, and bring it to Malik B to add a verse. You can hear the resulting song, “Live in the Streets,” in the video below, and grab a free download of it here.
