Class of 3000 is the critically-acclaimed Cartoon Network original series from creator and executive producers Andre "3000" Benjamin and Tom Lynch. Each episode features a new, original song written and performed by Andre "3000" Benjamin accompanied by an animated music video. In addition, Benjamin contributes his visual direction for the series and its original music videos. The Class of 3000: Music From The First Season CD is comprised of 15 songs from the show, performed by the kids/characters in the show, and executive-produced by, who else...Andre Benjamin!
Fall in, funketeers: the first soundtrack to "Class of 3000," the Cartoon Network show executive-produced by Andre 3000 of OutKast, mashes up a melange of beats and styles so beautifully conceived, so inner-city cool, that parents who once grooved to the "Fat Albert" gang will find themselves in thrall (cartoons able to make the grade with school-age kids while putting across a message happen once every 30 years, apparently). Here we have the whole "3000" crew cutting up to Andre, a.k.a. Sunny Bridges', whip-smart concoctions--Li'l D, Kim and Kam, Tamika, Madison, Philly Phil, and Edward trade the spotlight on weird but wickedly fun tracks like "Banana Zoo," "Oh Peanut," and "We Want Your Soul." The messages seep through, but in the end the grooves matter most. Future funkers of America, take note. And tune in immediately. --Tammy La Gorce
