Listen to Bill Cosby’s Rap Album

cosby-state-of-emergency

Right here, if you dare.

Me and the Cos don’t always see eye to eye on everything, but I know his intentions are pure. I just feel like he kind of missed an opportunity to really make an impact with this by not bringing in some current artists to work on the project. I mean, you can’t even get kids nowadays to listen to old-head rappers, so good luck trying to get them to listen to some guys they’ve never heard of before getting all preachy.

“I don’t like referring to the music as ‘clean,” says Cosby, who does not rap or sing on the album. “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.”

Bill Cosby Presents the Cosnarati: State of Emergency drops November 24th.

    My sister bought both Sweat & Suit
    I remember I had just started grad school @ chapel hill
    and drop down to Charlotte to kick with her the friday
    after both albums dropped
    and the buzz was that Sweat/Suit were gonna debut at #1 & #2
    which was a big deal
    then I heard them
    and figured everyone bought it on the strength of them being Nelly records
    cuz they were both garbage
    it would have been a decent album if he made it a one disc joint
    but he had way too much filler tracks on there

    Nothing formal but the situation led to a death.It’s been 3 months and no formal arraignment.This nigga in there rumbling with his celly and niggas tried to shank him cuz he got heart for days but you know them Blood boys run the joint,i’m sick over this.

  13. Mr. Damn, He Ain't Coppin' That, Is He? Says:

    though it would have been dope if he featured gucci man ands OJ the jooman and then did the closing verse on some preachy shit like “SEE? SEE AMERICA? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS….WHEN WE RAISE OUR CHILDREN….ON SPOILED BABY FORMULA. FATHERS! BE THERE FOR YOUR KIDS. MOTHERS! BREASTFEED LIKE THE WHITE PEOPLE. EXPIRED SIMILAC IS NOT HELPING US.”

  14. Rey Says:

    *smacks belize*

    @ Cassava– Ehh… Some filler, but I thought he stepped his lyrics game up there from Nellyville. Ah well.

  21. Jersey*made*me Says:

    Smh@ niggas thinking Nelly could’ve rhymed with Children Of The Corn(Big L,Cam,McGruff,Bloodshed).That’s basically what you’re saying if he rhymes like Mase.

    What the fuck is this world coming to?

  22. The Killer Says:

    Cosby wishes he was white , or acts like it

  25. Mr. Damn, He Ain't Coppin' That, Is He? Says:

    all i’m saying is, if u get a bitch pregnant and have a bastard child, stop your bloodclot preachin. is that too much to ask? i think not. i get asked to give the khutbah at juma sometimes because i speak arabic and know a couple suras…out the quran (c) beanie, but i decline. in college i might do it but now i decline. i ain’t getting on that soap box. not till i get my shit in order. cosby nees to realize that he sounds like a crazy, bitter old head. not a good look.

  26. AmpGeez a.k.a Get Rich Or Blog Tryin' Says:

    The Cos is a douche.

  27. landLORD Says:

    i dont know who said it… but if someone said Nelly > Mase, they need to be punished immediately …

  28. CassavaLeaf Says:

    *Listens to Bill Cosby ft OJ Da Juiceman: Fuck Dem Hoes (Clean Version)

  32. Van Sertima Says:

    Yup, HUGE opportunity missed. No one would have said no to Cosby (mc or producers) and he has deep enough pockets to make it happen. Get to work on Vol. 2 ASAP. I’m thinking Jay on a track produced by Premier; get Nasir and Large Professor back together; Mos on a Q-Tip produced track; let’s get J Cole and Drake to make some good shit. . . Get Ye and Common on a Ye produced track. . . get gucci and jeezy on some shit (cosby has that type of doe). . . Nikki and Jean. . .I mean the list go on and the possibilities are endless.

    Ma$e > Nelly.. How is that even news?

    Not sure about that.
    I’ve never purchased a Nelly album
    but I was in undergrad at Purdue when Country Grammar dropped
    and I know a lot of midwest dudes that was bumping that shit
