Omar Tyree – “Revelations” (The Oldhead Speaks) | @OmarTyree

In MUSIC
Omar Tyree

In the tradition of the eye-opening and ear-popping poetry and protest music of Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets, Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, James Brown and Marvin Gaye, celebrated West Philadelphian-born book writer, journalist, poet and filmmaker, Omar Tyree, drops the perfect record at the perfect time in America.

Highlighting verses from the final chapter of the Bible, the 51-year-old writer interprets an urgent need for those with voices and a platform to not only speak out on social media, broadcast news programs, podcast interviews and at national protests and rallies, but to speak out on original records and in books with the defiance and wisdom that paints yet another chapter of cultural and political history in our turbulent country. And he does so over a thick and harmonious grove, produced by KDN Beats, buffered by the angelic voice of soul singer, Dajulyn Wallace.

Taking notes and elements from a long and colorful history of black vocal delivery, from the inner-city street corners of Philly to the southern church pulpits of Atlanta, Tyree adds a heavy dose of echo panning to make sure we hear his every word, multiple times.

“This is the type of old-school music a lot of young people are not really familiar with anymore,” Tyree states. “Of course, the first and second generations of hip-hop artists know it, but now we’re on to a third and fourth generation of hip hop, who will likely hear this style of music for the first time.”

Calling himself “The Oldhead,” Tyree reveals that Revelations is actually the close-out record on a compilation album entitled, The Last Summer, created to document the thoughts and reactions to the CoronaVirus, Racial Injustice, and the current state of the world in year 2020.

But as Tyree states in a chamber of seamless echoes, the young boahs with voices to speak on a record have no idea how to respond to what’s going on. So, it’s The Oldhead to the rescue. And the seasoned Philadelphia writer, best known for the urban classic novel Flyy Girl, says he’s just getting started.

“I got more than a dozen records coming this summer with some established artists and some new artists, and every single song is dope and meaningful,” he boasts. “And if Revelations does the work of getting the word out, then we’re all about to see and hear it.”

Tyree says he plans to release a new song snippet from The Last Summer compilation every two weeks in June and July until the full LP is complete in August.
