Coming hot on the heels of his first full length, the self-proclaimed “most sampled artist of all time,” released the groundbreaking black concept LP Is It Because I’m Black (a full 13 months before Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On). Throwing away the notion of a sophomore jinx, Syl delivered this politically charged document. Issued on 150gram vinyl and housed in a tip-on jacket.
