    After hundreds of thousands of albums sold, multi-platinum appearances, a major label deal, drafting the blueprint for independent success, Cormega boldly states that his July 22 release of Mega Philosophy will define his place among the greats, and in turn his Rap Legacy. “Mega Philosophy is the album that will determine if I truly belong in hip-hop,” shares the introspective lyricist. “On Mega Philosophy, I had to challenge myself to elevate above the norm. I feel like hip-hop has failed the listeners,” he declares. “Hip-Hop used to be journalistic; people spoke on what they saw and what they felt. “So much has happened in the last few years, but a lot of artists aren’t talking about anything. I’m fighting for our culture,” he says, out to

    replace the songs about drinking to excess and “molly” with information promoting knowledge ofself, family, and valuing the arts.

    Mega’s fifth studio album, Mega Philosophy, produced entirely by Large Professor challenges current conventions of mainstream rap at every turn. There are few hip-hop artists speaking their mind as freely and fearlessly as Mega. After actively protesting the murder of Trayvon, witnessing first-hand the devastation after the Haitian earthquake, and a life-changing trip to Africa for Uganda Empowers, Mega lends his perspective and wisdom reflecting on issues that affect us all. He cites the murder of Trayvon Martin, subsequent acquittal of George Zimmerman, earthquake disasters in Haiti, and the defenseless shooting of Oscar Grant by police on Oakland’s BART platform as examples of opportunities missed. Speaking about Trayvon’s murder, the devoted father reacts, “It had me looking at how I’m viewed in society as a Black man differently. It’s sad that I have to teach my son how to act around the police or that he has to be super-conscious of how he’s perceived.”
