Leather Blvd. Cassette
Welcome to Leather Blvd. A Black utopia conceived by B. Cool-Aid—the duo of vocalist Pink Siifu and producer Ahwlee (pronounced “Ali”) — populated by an ensemble cast of characters and collaborators, including Ladybug Mecca (of Digable Planets), Big Rube, Fousheé, Mndsgn, Quelle Chris, Denmark Vassey, Liv.e and many more.
Picture Black co-op-owned beauty shops, barbershops, health food stores, weed spots, churches, mosques, nightclubs, bookstores, botanicas, bars, restaurants, street vendors, etc.—all of the signs of healthy community and commerce—on either side of a wide and impossibly long street. Now picture people of every size and shape and shade of brown hustling and bustling up and down the street, just living their lives. Imagine a fantastic version of Harlem’s 125th Street or Bed Stuy’s Fulton Street, or L.A.’s Leimert Park. There is such a place, even if it’s not technically real.
