Raheem DeVaughn and Wes Felton a.k.a. The Crossrhodes Drops “America” Video
BMG US announced the reunion of The CrossRhodes, the activist hip-hop/r&b group featuring three-time Grammy Nominated Recording Artist, Raheem DeVaughn, and his longtime collaborator, Wes Felton. The group is set to release their new album Footprints On The Moon on September 22, 2017.
The current climate of political and social unrest has invigorated the artistic prowess of DeVaughn and Felton. Empowered by the burgeoning passion fueled in support of leaders within the Black Lives Matter and Immigration Reform movements, The CrossRhodes reunited to break their silence and reactivate the masses.
Music has always been interwoven within social and political movements. Footprints On The Moon is providing the soundtrack for the movement towards social progress. Listeners can expect special appearances and production from notable artists and producers such as Scarface, Talib Kweli, 9th Wonder, Rapsody, Chaz French, Phil Ade, The Colleagues, The Fr3shmen, and many more.
“With the current state of political uncertainty, creatives have a responsibility to be the voice and reflection of the people. Music with a message is a much needed and welcomed disruption. Footprints On The Moon plans to inspire and incite positive and catalytic change,” says Devaughn.
“We come from a rich legacy of black artists who created music to wake the consciousness of the masses. Music is supposed to inspire. We do not promote escapism or a fantasy. We have created reality music. Footprints On The Moon will expose racial and social injustices, economic disparities, and issues that affect real people. It is our hope that the people will support artists and movements that reflect the changes needed for our communities,” says Felton.
