City of God’s Son
“City of God’s Son is an experimental hip-hop opera starring Nas, Jay Z, Ghostface, Biggie Smalls, Raekwon, “Samuel Jackson, Delroy Lindo, and Laurence Fishburne. It is a crime drama/coming of age tale of three fictitious characters growing up in a crime ridden mythical city in a jungle. This project explores the icon of the gangster in modern media, and weaves musical history and gangster film history into an operatic music based story of brotherhood and survival. An homage to 90s New York hip-hop, City of God’s Son is the redefinition of the remix. Featuring legendary soul singer Joe Bataan. A sound film/hip hop opera by Kenzo Digital.” — City of God’s Son website
Hopefully, you’ve already heard the buzz surrounding this ambitious hybrid project that is filling a serious void in hip hop. I find Kenzo’s ability to mimic sampling in the form of the narrative itself to be quite inspiring and successful. I urge you all to download the entire experimental hip-hop opera for FREE and find out any additional information on the history and future of this project right HERE. While you wait for it to download, check out Complex Magazine’s feature on Kenzo Digital! I’m tuned in and loving it. How about you? HOLLA!
