Is Dr. Huxtable the Next Dr. Dre?


Bill Cosby's rap album is dropping this May! That's right, the comedian and activist will mash up his book Come on, People: On the Path from Victims to Victors with hip hop, pop, and jazz beats.

Cosby won't be dishing the rhymes himself on the album Cosby Narratives Vol. 1: State of Emergency. Guest rappers will flow about the value of education, self-respect, in an attempt to increase the self-esteem and confidence of listeners.

The 70-year-old comedian has caused controversy, most recently for urging African Americans to move on from their successful civil rights battles. Do you think his hip hop album, which he calls the opposite of gangsta rap, will catch the attention of the community he seeks to reach? Will Bill succeed in turning around what he calls the "frustration and the anger that a young man may have"?
