Today, musician, writer, actor, director, and poet Phil Augusta Jackson shares his newest single, “Get It” – a hype trap/hip-hop track that KEXP describes as “a bouncy party anthem that showcases Jackson’s genre-pushing range”.
The track is accompanied by a video that the Emmy-nominated Jackson (Insecure, Key & Peele, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) produced himself. Directed by Nic Stanich (Troye Sivan, Tori Kelly, David Guetta), the “Get It” video captures Phil roaming Redondo Beach, the location where he was inspired to create his forthcoming EP The Redondo Tape, and firmly planting his stake as a musical visionary and Black creative.

Out September 4th and releasing independently, The Redondo Tape is a six-track EP full of creative detail from Phil’s artistic mind. Produced by Nick Lee (Demi Lovato, Dillon Francis, Poo Bear), The Redondo Tape combines some of the best elements of Black music culture: from soul-searching R&B to the driving beat and storytelling of hip-hop. “The whole project feels like an experiment -- an experiment of feelings and sounds,” says Phil.
Earlier this week, Phil Augusta Jackson partnered with The Root for their virtual conference, The Root Institute. The Root Institute aims to provide a productive space for leaders and thinkers with the capabilities to frame and advance the agenda for Black Americans today. Phil sat in on the series for their “Art with Activism” panel, specifically discussing Black Joy, entertainment, and the intersection of both. Other guests for this summer series include Stacey Abrams, Ava Duvernay, Lee Daniels, Taraji P. Henson, Aloe Blacc, and many more.
