Thundercat has drop his long-awaited album It Is What It Is and it puts his artistic talents and production skills on full display.
A beautiful fusion of funky jazz, rock, hip-hop and brief electronic inspirations, It Is What It Is is a medley for the ears. Chock-full of amazing features like Louis Cole, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, Childish Gambino, comedian Zack Fox, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil B and Pedro Martins, the album successfully balances emotional, humorous, existential and hopeful tones.
“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that,” Thundercat said about the record. “It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand…some things just aren’t meant to be understood.”
