I already posted about my NPR’s Father’s Day commentary, but for those who missed it here it is again.

In honor of the recent publication of Stare in the Darkness I’m going to post an old school hip-hop joint, perhaps the first Father’s Day message of the modern era. Be a Father to Your Child by Ed O. G. and Da Bulldogs:

And then, of course, the classic. Song for My Father by Horace Silver:

To my father Vaughn Spence, my father-in-law William Mason, the two newest fathers in my family (my brother Khari Spence, my brother-in-law Leonard Schwartz), happy father’s day.
