Mass Music: The Cornel West Theory – Every Nigga

The Cornel West Theory is at it again with “The B Side Campaign.” A series of singles that lead up to the official 3rd album “Coming From The Bottom” which dropped in Summer/Fall of 2014. “Every Nigga” depicts the ignorance of the modern day minstrel show, with references from The Boondocks “Return of the King” episode. With harmonic sound samples of Big Youth’s “Every N*gger is a Star.” CWT (The Cornel West Theory) focuses on the violence, drugs and money from corporations that produce and have produced today’s “Sambo.” A mockery of black/African culture within the imperialist structure we call America(s).

The Cornel West Theory is a band born in the belly of the beast, Washington DC. inspired by the struggles of DC’s ghettos, Hip Hop, and the center of world politics. There music is rooted in hip hop, but smashed into a firebrand sound containing elements of punk, go-go, blues, jazz, and industrial noises-capes.
