• Entering the Kingdom of Kush w/ Chikwe Jah


    Rap
    Over a sunny afternoon in Atlanta, GA we ride through the city as Chikwe Jah discusses his new album Kingdom of Kush. The veteran MC definitely seems to be taking all of it in stride while he discusses his third studio release as well as what hip hop along with the record companies mean to him. Seamlessly flowing with the reputation reggae, his respect for your culture immediately leaves an impression upon me. Because rapper discusses from his favorite strains of marijuana, to politics, to legacy it is very apparent that I am in for a gift.

    When we set out to pay attention to Kingdom of Kush We are struck by the energy rap, by just one or two songs in I do know very succinctly that rap has just evolved. After a spoken word opening entitled "Joy Also comes in the Morning" featuring poet Tricia Hersey the rapper waste no time and hits us with "Caucasian Rich" music by using these amazing musicality that my head usually made to rock rhythmically with the biggest appearance of satisfied stank in my face.

    The album offers a diverse landscape of sound and lyric, but overall Kingdom of Kush empowers and left me with a feeling which i had just met among hip hop's greatest lyricists. In a time when rap is oversaturated with mumbles, grunts, and adlibs Chikwe Jah reminded me that words are out there and have great meaning, yes� rap still lives. His diversity in subject matter and depth of lyricism is both refreshing and entertaining. A single moment we had been drifting down Ponce De Leon Ave with my head being eroticized by "Sex Fiend" as well as in another connecting with all the emotion of unapologetic black survival in "Stay Lit".

    Without any hyperbole, Kingdom of Kush is among the most meaningful album of this year. Its neoteric narrative of black life in the us, and contemporary flows input it in a group of its very own. Reggae has seen a lot of cons, but Chikwe Jah is just not one. As we go to Tacos and Tequilas for supper, I'm thinking this feels classic, the rapper has permit me to listen to your entire album and in an extremely humble tone asks me "what do you consider?" I be sure he understands plain and simple "you rock!!!"
