Hip-hop’s Funeral

Hip-hop legend Brother J has released the following statement about President-elect Barack Obama being sworn into office. The historical event has prompted the following statement from the hip-hop legend:

“I am so happy with the timing of this album release, as this is the year of the birth of change. Obama is a symbol of America breaking racial traditions; it will mean nothing to the people if we don't change for the better. Less violence,  more education, more jobs and less prisoners. Barack in office does not mean the system is all good, but it’s a start to try get it right by the people's standard.  X-Clan's new album rubs against the grain of ‘industry standard,’ just like Barack Obama becoming commander-in-chief. Conscious music is destined to ride the streets and the charts in heavy rotation.

“People are ready for a balance. X-Clan is not here to change the game, but we want to offer a different taste of lyric and thump that the industry is not offering to the people regularly. People are more intelligent than they are judged to be. The people will stand up and support when the time is right, and the time is now. The youth are imitating the art and molding street tales into a lifestyle. Hip-hop music represents freedom, glorifying the gutter makes it cool to be a slave. We need more music of empowerment, intelligence and flow to bring it all together. That would be the change in the game!”

X-Clan have debuted the track “Keys To Your City” online at  from their upcoming new studio album “Mainstream Outlawz”, which is slated for a January 27th, 2009 release through Suburban Noize Records. With the release of their upcoming album, X-Clan are on a quest to bring hip-hop back to the roots of the genre with the aid some of the industry’s biggest lyrical assassins including Bun B of UGK, Medusa and Supanatural. X-Clan are proudly waving the flag for hip-hop, while others would rather plan the genre's funeral.
