Bill Cosby to Drop Hip-Hop Album Next Month

Comedian and activist Bill Cosby, a longtime critic of Hip-Hop music, has decided to fight fire with fire. The legendary entertainment industry veteran has officially announced that he will be releasing a Hip-Hop album entitled Cosby Narratives Vol. 1: State of Emergency. According to, the project will not feature raps by the 71 year-old Cosby, but will integrate positive messages drawn from his previous books, stories and song lyrics. The album is intended as a companion to Cosby’s 2007 book with Dr. Alvin F. Poussaint, Come on People: On the Path From Victims to Victors. In the book, the pair examine the state of Black America, and offer solutions for overcoming lack of education, the lure of crime and the epidemic of broken homes. Cosby has been vocal about what he perceives as Hip-Hop’s negative content and the influence it has on young Blacks in America. Assisting Cosby on State of Emergency will be groundbreaking Ultramagnetic MCs producer Ced-Gee, who is best known for shaping that group’s unique sound and helming KRS-One’s 1987 album Criminal Minded. The producer will work with Bill “Spaceman” Patterson to guide the project. MCs SupaNova Slom, Jace the Great and Brother Hahz have been confirmed as contributors.
