Philadelphia-based Bilal, known for his screechy falsetto, hasn't released an album since 2001's 1st Born Second -- his second album, Love For Sale, was scrapped after leaking online. But he's collaborated with Jay-Z, Common and Ms. Badu herself: He provided background vocals for five tracks on her 2006 album, New Amerykah Part One (4th World War).
Bilal has promised a 2010 release for his new release, Airtight's Revenge.
Robert Glasper is a Grammy-nominated jazz and hip-hop pianist and keyboardist whose latest album, Double-Booked, highlights the juxtaposition of his various styles. He's played many times with Bilal, and his RCDC band -- which has often backed Mos Def in concert -- features Badu's excellent drummer Chris "Daddy" Dave.
Tickets for the show are pricey: They run from $58.50 to $125 and are available at Ticketmaster. But this show is unique for South Florida (it's not part of a bigger Badu tour) and is sure to feature some of the jam-centric hip-hop musicianship often found in New York City concerts, but rarely down here.
