Out October 28th, Pieces In Space is the Don Giovanni Records debut LP from Sammus, the stage name adopted by Ithaca, NY producer, rapper, activist, and PhD student Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo. Known as much for her rousing stage presence as she is for her prowess as a beatmaker and lyricist, Sammus has spent the past several years cultivating a strong following of activists, hip hop heads, punks, and self-proclaimed nerds and geeks, among others. Now ready to make her Don Giovanni debut, she is poised to cement herself as an artist who consistently thinks outside boxes and dances across lines (and does other neat things with geometrical figures).
Armed with guest appearances from rap legends like Jean Grae, Homeboy Sandman, and Open Mike Eagle as well as her Don Giovanni labelmate Izzy True and Brooklyn up-and-comer Latasha Alcindor, the project aims to establish Sammus as one of the great MCs, beat makers, and thinkers of this politically charged movement.
