Freeload: Cody ChesnuTT, “AfrObama”

June 17, 2008

The last paragraph of former FADER editor-in-chief Knox Robinson's "West Coast Negrock & Roll" feature from FADER 12, which includes a lengthy segment on the ever-elusive Cody ChesnuTT, contains a sentence that could easily apply to Barack: "Their ability to withstand the pressure with which they will be faced, or the cunning they will need to adapt its commercial power to their creative needs, seems likely to soon undergo the severest of tests." In other words, it's going to be a long, hot summer for BHO, but long, hot summers usually produce the best stories. Obviously, we love great stories, and though our hopes for the artists in that feature didn't exactly pan out, we haven't given up on Mr ChesnuTT. So it's particularly outstanding to get him doing some Fela-like jamming for his candidate of choice three days before the official solstice. As it turns out, the Obama-inspired mixtape developing onthisblog is getting to be real serious, so keep 'em coming. To get the Obama-snippet version of "AfrObama" go to Cody's MySpace.
