Product Description & Reviews

One of America's most prominent black intellectuals, Dr. Cornell West, has teamed up with Hidden Beach Recordings, to produce one of the most important and socially conscience music projects to be released in 2007 entitled; Never Forget: A Journey Of Revelations. On the heels of the Don Imus controversy, topical debates on the political and sociological effects regarding the use of the N Word and our country searching for answers to the question Now What? all are addressed in the context of this CD. This compelling body of work features Cornel West as a conductor who orchestrates a symphony of Hip-Hop and R&B recording artists and producers in the delivery of a resounding message that offers music as a positive force to effect change, awareness and solidarity. Never Forget: A Journey Of Revelations is a riveting thought compelling approach to raise the consciousness of the main stream music consumer through a positive lyrical approach that exemplifies a level of love, unity, solidarity, and loyalty designed to the give the world a force of good in the form of music, especially Black Music in these bleak times. Celebrating Walt Whitman in 1993, theoretician and activist Cornel West wrote of the former's "faith in democracy... not simply as a form of governance... but rather a dynamic means for the cultivation and encouragement of the potentialities and possibilities of individuals." The same can be said of West's own approach to hip-hop culture, as demonstrated on this follow-up to 2001's Sketches of My Culture. Threaded through its soul-funk, R&B, and hip-hop songs are a few trying spoken-word pieces, but these are levied with sufficient restraint so that the more musical numbers predominate. Throughout, West counters the drawbacks of his own lyrical delivery with the talents of his wide-ranging guests, including Prince ("Dear Mr. Man"), André 3000 of Outkast ("Chronomentrophobia"), KRS-One ("Mr. President"), Black Thought of the Roots ("America"), Talib Kweli ("Bushonomics"), Jill Scott ("What Time It Is"), and others. Clearly, West and his bevy of collaborators don't shy away from easy targets, but while West's books offer deeper and more compelling expressions of his radical thought and theory, his musical offerings provide welcoming inroads to his belief in hip-hop culture as a relevant, life-affirming field of play for resistance and hope in equal measure. --Jason Kirk
