The CrossRhodes – America

Producer and rapper Wes Felton and three time Grammy nominated crooner Raheem Devaughn have prolific careers on their own, but their collaboration as The CrossRhodes stands out to fans of DC hip-hop from the golden era of the mid-aughts. The duo has reunited with the mission to use their conscious messages and prodigious talent to further the fraught conversation about race in America. Footprints On The Moon is their first album in many years, and its 2016 single “America”, released right before the election, recently got this powerful music video directed by Chris Scholar featuring poet Raquel Ra Brown. 2017 feels like many steps backward for communities of color in America, but songs like these give us hope for long overdue progress. Make some room in your busy December calendar for The 4th Annual Raheem DeVaughn & Friends Holiday Charity Concert at the Howard Theatre on Thursday December 21st.
