ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not since Marvin Gaye poignantly told of his inner-city blues has an artist commanded the attention of heartland, urban areas & gated communities alike. Ohene speaks to the masses with his latest release Inner City Soul, a follow up to his nationally acclaimed & worldwide recognized The Rapademics. Ohene not only shows maturity as an emcee but proves his production & song arrangement skills have advanced as well. Bringing the graceful & compelling vocal talents of Nasheeda Shockley on such Hip-Hop ballads as "They Killed Jesus" & "Hello Stranger," Ohene fluently delivers tales of race & social concerns with a concise tone & paints a clear & vivid picture. On other songs such as "Church Girl" & "Move" realistic & empathy-worthy scenes are embedded in listeners' hearts and minds. Inner City Soul reaches beyond the cities' alleys & cracked pavements; with tracks like "Say a Little Prayer," it graces the porches of every rural establishment & trots along even cobblestone laid streets of quiet communities. Not only bringing the past to light, Inner City Soul embodies the welfare of our current state & demands a change for the future, for the better.

Covering all bases
Smart, creative, intropective, "Inner City Soul" lacks for nothing. Though the lyrical skill that made "The Rapademics" famous is still present, this time it takes a backseat to humanism. For all that were looking for Ohene to touch their hearts as well as their minds will be more than happy with his sophomore album.

Me

Classic
this album raises the bar for hip hop both musically, conceptually and spiritually. Wake Up and cop it! this is a classic joint.

Diamond in the Rough; Hip-Hop with an Agenda
Black theologian James H. Cone wrote, "Any theology that is indifferent to the theme of liberation is not Christian theology." Ohene's message on Inner City Soul is consistent with this gospel of liberation. The beats, lyrics, and concepts are dope as he approaches this theme from a variety of angles. The production needs some polish, but everyone ain't got G-Unit's budget. Pick this up as it offers a vision for hip-hop that isn't consumed by the ghetto but aims to liberate it. They may have "killed Jesus," but the gospel lives through voices like Ohene.
