Bilal

As a member of artist collective the Soulquarians, founded by the likes of ?uestlove and J Dilla, Bilal has held his own among some impressive company. But while his peers and underground fans are quick to grant him respect, it's not likely you'll catch any of his songs on the radio. Last year's Airtight's Revenge, his third full-length release and first in nearly a decade, takes a more genre-crossing tack than his previous material, and his vocal transitions match the eclectic sound while gliding between baritone, falsetto and silky croon.
