Growing out of the Five Percenter movement in the late ’80s, Brand Nubian’s debut album, One for All, packed an empowering punch with a message of strength and positivity rapped over plenty of James Brown samples. The original lineup – Grand Puba, Sadat X and Lord Jamar – reunite for an old-school hip-hop bill at Gilt this weekend alongside Nice & Smooth of “Sometimes I Rhyme Slow” fame. Though Brand Nubian caught a lot of flak for perceived “reverse racism” back in the day, their overall message of black strength in the face of an oppressive white regime still strikes chords. 

10 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 4 | Gilt Nightclub, 740 Bennett Road | giltnightclub.com | $10-$15
