I don’t know of any other Hip Hop label currently that has been consistent with releasing compilation LP’s of artists featuring songs that could stand on their own as singles but packaged nicely on one 12″ LP. There seems to be a no strings attached, common denominator of “as long as it’s dope, we’ll rock with it” type of attitude going on at Culture Power45 and we like it. In an industry and era full of politics, CP45 seems to take the opposite approach which really shows in their output as a label and what they’ve been consistently doing.
On their upcoming release and the 4th in their “Lost Cargo” series, they’ve gathered 19 gems from varying artists to give us a complete listen throughout on this Hip Hop delight.
“Lost Cargo 4 is a fantastic voyage of our kinship’s and our traditions that help define our tribal distinction in society. We as creators of Hip Hop work collectively to map out our destination for our paths. It is important to understand, relate and communicate what we can combine for survival on this planet. Through Hip-Hop culture we construct different concepts of sound, dance, artistry and conversations, these evaluations educate generations to come with our translations of time. So yes, yes yall, Let the B boy’s rock and the Dj’s cut as we convey the beautiful narratives of stolen ghetto children liberated through Congolese talking drum vibrations. Party people please enter peacefully and enjoy the rhythms of Lost Cargo 4 featuring a variety of story tellers and sound providers.”
