Freestyling With August Greene

August Greene is the new collaboration from Common, Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins. Many great bands get their start in a garage — very few get theirs at the White House. The trio blends jazz and hip-hop — a mix of styles from rap star Common, jazz pianist Robert Glasper and drummer Karriem Riggins. Their first song won an Emmy. Now they're freestyling with Joshua Johnson. | Want to support 1A? Give to your local public radio station at and subscribe to our podcast. Have questions? Email the show at
