Karriem Riggins – The Jazz drummer and hip-hop producer from Detroit, Michigan is the truth. I like this tune a lot so I had no choice but to share. He is not in the spotlight but he has laid the groundwork for artists like Common, Slum Village, Talib Kweli and plenty others. Riggins even has a joint with former Beatle Paul McCartney, highly impressive but much deserved. This video right here, Bahia Dreamin, directed by Calmatic is absolutely brilliant and perfectly executed. Just in time for the summer months, the camera follows a young lady dancing in her apartment to a Riggins beat. Riggins can be seen in the background playing the drums as there is a sudden knock at the door. I won’t spoil it by telling you what happens but take my word for it that it is worth 2 minutes and 57 seconds of your time. Check out the video and comment.
