Lyricist Lounge presents special live performances by Bilal and Camp Lo

If there was one R&B artist for whom the neo-soul seemed limiting, it was Philadelphia native Bilal. None of his recordings resembled sycophantic worship of soul artists who thrived in the ’60 and ‘70s, and it wasn’t just because his voice -- classically trained, capable of singing opera in seven languages -- was so unique. While some inspirations were detectable, his recordings were wholly modern and became increasingly creative.
Unsatisfied with the destinction of being the most underated hip-hop duo of their time, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede collectively known as Camp Lo are preparing Another Heist. Camp Lo made their first appearance in 1996 on The Great White Hype soundtrack, with their single "Coolie High". The smooth party song was a minor hit, peaking at 25 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart.
