[BLACK ALT] Deep Cotton Drop âFixtapeâ for Urban Music<br />

Nate Wonder and Chuck Lightning watch the throne

for instance, Michael Jackson does “Beat it” or Prince does “Purple Rain.” Lenny Kravitz. We’ve had those moments. But to really say a whole movement comes through at one time, like it was in Seattle [with Nirvana], we haven’t had that moment yet. We’re in a space where that kind of thing could happen, especially if the music jams. The music has to jam.
