Jahari Massamba Unit Drops New Single 'Otis' Tambourine'

Jahari Massamba Unit Drops New Single 'Otis' Tambourine'

The duo of Karriem Riggins and Madlib just released their new single 'Otis’ Tambourine' from their upcoming album YHWH is LOVE, which drops on 3/1. YHWH is LOVE will be Jahari Massamba Unit’s second album, and has been highly anticipated since their first project, Pardon My French was released in 2020.

Pitchfork said Pardon My French “sounds like experimental jazz and feels like a beat tape,” while Rolling Stone called it “a brand-new LP that sounds like it could have been fished out of a dusty dollar bin.”

Riggins and Madlib were first introduced nearly 20 years ago by their late mutual friend and collaborator J Dilla. The duo went on to collaborate on Madlib’s 2007 album Yesterdays Universe and together as Supreme Team. Jahari Massamba Unit started as a natural extension of Riggins and Madlib's relationship and mutual appreciation for each other's artistry.
