NPR Microphone Check, 8/19/14:

A rap duo from New York City is being talked about as a continuation of the golden era of hip-hop — a time in the late ’80s and early ’90s when groups made songs that noted police brutality, elevated conversation and filled dance floors. Issa and AK are at a stage in their careers — three full length projects in — where they believe they’ve gained enough skill and experience to be able to make music that does what they want it to do: spark change, infuse the culture, help them see the world. They sat with Microphone Check cohosts Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelley this spring and received some grown man admonishment and one tip regarding a video location while telling stories about Australian fans and all their strategic moves.
