Bill Cosby: “You’re not Going to Put Women Down”October 13th, 2009
Veteran comedian, Bill Cosby is set to inject a new wave of positivity into our black youth, through the use of music. Cosby’s new album, “Bill Cosby Presents Cosnarati: State of Emergency,” is scheduled for release, November 24th.
“I don’t like referring to the music as clean,” Cosby said. “What I like is what you’re not going to do. You’re not going to curse. You’re not going to put women down. You’re not going to put the glory of the gun somewhere. And you’re not going to put a whole lot of violence up front like that’s the thing that will cleanse you and make you feel better.”
The project is a musical gumbo of funk, R&B, rock, jazz and Hip-Hop – featuring a list of songs, with various deep messages including, addressing worthless fathers in, “Dad Behind the Glass, and giving praise to black women in, “Where’s the Parade.”
Though listeners should not expect to hear Cosby rap on the album, the man with a Coca-Cola smile, has been sure to include some of music’s top masters in his latest pro-active project – Miles Davis, LL Cool J, Eric Clapton, Ced Gee from the World Famous Ultra Magnetic MC’s, and Alicia Keys (just to name a few).
From what I’ve witnessed Bill Cosby do for the black community during his lengthy career in the spotlight, I do believe that no one can argue the fact that he is a positive man. He’s been feeding our black youth knowledge for decades. And even after tragically losing his son, Mr. Cosby has picked-up the pieces of his life and made tireless efforts to speak out in hopes of helping to save other parents’ children.
THANK YOU BILL!
