Bill Cosby to release hip-hop album

70-year-old comedian's LP comes out next month

Bill Cosby is set to release a hip-hop album which will see the comedian mesh his book ‘Come on, People: On the Path from Victims to Victors’ with hip-hop, pop and jazz music.

The creator of the massive 1980s TV show ‘The Cosby Show’ will release the record next month, but according to reports he will not rap on the record, saying he would not “know how to fix my mouth to say some of the words.”

Cosby told the Associated Press that the album is very different to gangsta rap, and is “the opposite of what I think is the profanity for no particular reason, the misogyny for no particular reason.”

‘Cosby Narratives Vol. 1: State of Emergency’ sees him collaborated with Bill ‘Spaceman’ Patterson and discusses issues such as education, self-respect, self-esteem and confidence’.

Guests who will rap Cosby’s words include SupaNova Slom, Jace the Great and Brother Hahz.

A release date for the project has yet to be announced, but it is expected to hit shelves in the coming weeks.
