Sources are reporting that the legendary Bill Cosby will be releasing a Hip-Hop album in a few weeks Titled â€œCosby Narratives Vol. 1: State of Emergency.â€. Cosby will serve as co-writer and executive producer on the project, but he will not actually record any songs contrary to previous reports. Helping Cosby on the project is the founder of Ultramagnetic Mc’s Ced-Gee and also Bill “Spaceman”Patterson.
“State of Emergency” isÂ designed to accompany Cosby’s Book “Come On People” released in 2007 and will incorporate jazz, hip-hop, punk, funk all geared towards positive straightforward messages derived from Cosby’s lyrics, stories, and musical ideas.
In a statement on behalf of Cosby from his rep says: â€œState of Emergencyâ€ is described as an â€œunflinching look at life in the 21st century but without the profanity, misogyny, violence and braggadocioâ€ that Cosby has vehemently criticized in hip-hop music.
