62: “And I’m Out” by Galactic, featuring Mr. Lif

They were originally named "Galactic Prophylactic" but there was a legal dispute over that gem.Back in 2007 the New Orleans-based jam band Galactic put out the first of two albums, From The Corner To The Block (2007) and Ya-Ka-May (2010), on which they collaborated with a different rap artist on almost every track.  The band had previously relied on the vocals of Theryl DeClouet (also known as House Man), a more traditional soul/R&B singer whose health issues prevented further collaboration.

The band is dedicated to their hometown of New Orleans.  Stanton Moore, their virtuoso drummer, created his own dark, instrumental version of the Led Zeppelin classic “When The Levee Breaks” after hurricane Katrina changed the city forever, and Galactic performs it when they want to make your soul ache.

This track, “And I’m Out,” features the verbal stylings of hip-hop artist, Mr. Lif, who hails from Boston.

If it keeps on raining… just enjoy this tune.
