Libretto – ‘Jesus Had’a Afro’ (Official Video)

Libretto – ‘Jesus Had’a Afro’ (Official Video)

Liquid Beat Records and Slum Funk Entertainment are incredibly proud to present the Libretto’s powerful and poignant new video, ‘Jesus Had’a Afro’…

…in support of his latest project, ‘Gangsta Jazz 2 The Album’. “It is evident and undeniable that Jesus was a person of color and had a afro. The song and video of ‘Jesus Had’a Afro’ is strictly based on facts. I am only speaking from the scripture itself. My goal is to educate, elevate and motivate through music that is honest, clever and fruitful. The image of a white Jesus, and the association of whiteness with godliness is not only historically inaccurate, but psychologically damaging. In no way is this song or video meant to be disrespectful to any race, culture or religious beliefs. Rather, this art is my attempt to rectify a dangerous mistruth.”
- Libretto

‘Gangsta Jazz 2′ is Libretto’s first release since being released from prison, and his first full album since his classic debut, ‘Illoet’ on Dim Mak Recordings. Written entirely while Libretto was in confinement, ‘Gangsta Jazz 2′ offers meditations on the mystique and first person realities of life in the projects. The Album is the follow up to the popular ‘Gangsta Jazz’ EP and continues the concept of making songs using strictly loops from old records. Paying tribute to the classic sound of 90s West Coast sample based Hip-Hop Libretto grew up with in Watts, California, ‘Gangsta Jazz 2′ reminds us of the power, perspective, and poetry that Reality Rap has to offer. Available as a free download, and limited edition tape.
