X-Clan Cd Release party at SOB's (XClan, Public Enemy On Tour) - By: Paradise Gray

Hip-hop was alive and well at SOB's in New York on January 31st as The X-Clan, YZ and Wise Intelligent (The Poor Righteous Teacher's) hit the stage with a compelling argument against dumbed down, corporation approved, devoid of creativity and spirit music.

The night began with "Uncle" Ralph McDaniels doing a "Blazing" VJ set, using the latest technology to DJ using videos and DVDs. It was crazy!!! Ralph was scratching videos that would react simultaneously on a large screen with the music. If video killed the radio star, the "VJ" is set to smash mere DJ's. Add to the fact that Ralph McDaniels as the pioneer of local Hip-hop video shows with his "Video Music Box", his video "crates" are as deep as the best crate digging DJ's record collection. It was great to see so many true school videos that I hadn''t seen in years spun in such an innovative way.

It was the first time that Brother J and I were on stage together since 1992, so it was a special treat for me to see such large number of original BlackWatch Movement Elders and members in the house to welcome the X-Clan home to New York. The spirits of our Ancestors Baba Sonny "Abubadika" Carson his son Lumumba "Professor X" Carson and Anthony "The Rythem Provider Sugar Shaft" Hardin smiled down upon us as The Grand Verbalizer Funkin-Lesson Brother J dropped a collection of jewels from "To The East Blackwards" and "Xodus" mixed in with new scrolls from "Return From Mecca". The SOB's show was like a Hip-hop Oasis in todays desert, a throwback to a Golden Era of consciousness featuring music that was full of life and hope.

The diverse crowd included Hip-hop legends Africa Bambaataa with a large delegation from the Universal Zulu Nation, recent Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Grandmaster Mele Mel, Dana Dane, Freddie Fox, Supa Nat and the aforementioned YZ and Wise Intelligent. For those of you real Hip-Hop fans who haven''t seen brother Wise Intelligent perform lately, stop cheating yourself! Treat yourself to an energetic cranium nodding festival, the brother is hot on stage and should not be missed when he's in your area.

Put down the video game controller, slowly you can do it. Now head over to your local Mom & Pop store (they still exist) or just log onto the internet to your favorite online CD spot and cop "The Return From Mecca" from X-Clan. Don''t complain about what's on the radio if you don''t support artists like X-Clan with your wallet.

Here is what Davey D (www.daveyd.com) had to say about the new CD from X-Clan:

“Brother aint'' lost a step, he is the clean up hitter that hip-hop so desperately needed, and he just hit a homerun with this new X-Clan album!” - Davey D
