Christian Tiger School + Bilal + World’s Fair: Spanish Robin Williams

Matthew Dear's Tears for Fears, Outline Artists' creative series, South Africa hits Brooklyn and more in our look at music this week

As part of Okayplayer’s ongoing collaboration series that brings divergent musicians together for one-off tracks, South African hip-hop production team Christian Tiger School traveled to Brooklyn to lay down “Spanish Robin Williams,” an unexpected, eclectic banger with New York MCs World’s Fair and neo-jazz trailblazer Bilal. Something of a musical buffet, la the UN’s cafeteria, the track mixes genres and styles seamlesslythe tripped out hip-hop house production is perfectly complimented by World’s Fair’s thinking-person verses while Bilal throws in just enough soul in the bridge.
