Karriem Riggins Live!

Karriem Riggins’ is best known as a jazz drummer and hip-hop producer for artists like Common, Kanye West, Erykah Badu, and The Roots, but he doesn’t categorize himself as anything but an artist. He advises younger musicians to do the same. As a beatmaker, Riggins pivots between wistful soul and gritty drum breaks, giving ample room for his featured artists to shine. A student of late jazz bassist Ray Brown, he tours with another Brown protégé, Grammy Award winner Diana Krall.

In 2011, he collaborated with former Beatle Paul McCartney in concert and on Kisses on the Bottom, McCartney’s first studio release in five years. Names of some of the jazz artists he’s backed reads like the genre’s hall of fame - Hank Jones, Oscar Peterson, Milt Jackson, Donald Byrd and Ron Carter. In early 2016, Riggins, Robert Glasper and Common formed the super group August Greene, culminating years of mutual respect and friendship, channeling the musicians’ various talents into a cohesive project. The perfect marriage of jazz, hip-hop and soul. In 2017, Riggins, won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics from director Ava DuVernay's 13th documentary. Karriem has made major accomplishments within the hip hop world as a musician and producer.
