Editorial Reviews

Bill Cosby rekindles hip-hop's socially conscious flame on ''Bill Cosby Presents the Cosnarati: State of Emergency.'' It's all part of a grass roots effort to foster ongoing community dialogue and action by way of listening parties held at homes, community centers, churches and other locales. Although he does not rap or sing on the project, he executive produced the project and conceived the songs' story concepts.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's an OK cd...NOT COMEDY November 11, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As the title says...IT'S NOT COSBY'S COMEDY!! I did the sensible thing and previewed the tracks b/c the titles didn't sound like comedy segments. I'm not a fan of rap by any stretch, but listening to the tracks, I could hear a theme of the messages that Cosby has been speaking out about for the last few years. For that reason alone, it's worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill does it. November 11, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
Heard a lot of things about this record in the past couple years and was always curious how this would come together. Have to say - Cosby does a great job of bringing the right message through the medium. Do wish he made an appearance on this one, would love to hear Mr. Cosby drop some bars as well. Maybe even just some spoken word or a little scat ditty. That would be legendary.

Great album overall, looking forward to hearing more from the Cos.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fresh air November 12, 2009
By Joseph
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Positive and socially conscious hip-hop with great beats and emcees. Pretty cool.

No degrading women, no glamorizing crime and/or violence, and no "n-word." Very accessible; themes include working hard, honesty, taking responsiblity for your action, being patient, overcoming hardships and challenges, keeping your head up, etc.

I thought it would be cheesy but gave it a spin and surprisingly found it to be an inspired and thought provoking record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kickin out the jams Cosby style November 12, 2009
By Cochese
Format:MP3 Music
Excellent non-traditional approach to deliver the messages of such an inspirational figure through the voices of others. Hip-hop has always been a means of expressing a message / purpose, and what better message than that of Mr. Cosby's. Highly recommend giving the album a shot. Not to mention it's only $1.99. Well done Master B.
