Bill Cosby is now busy conquering the digital world. No stranger to bridging the generation gap, the legendary comedian became a newly branded digital force on Oct.19 when his virtual town hall meeting registered high-level traffic across several social media platforms. Those platforms include Ustream, Facebook, Twitter, Urban Radio station websites and Cosby’s own interactive web site, www.billcosby.com.
The New York City webcast was staged to help promote the release of Cosby’s empowering hip-hop album, “Bill Cosby Presents the Cosnarati: State of Emergency.” Available now on Amazon MP3, the album will become available in stores and at other digital retailers Nov. 24. Executive produced by Cosby and produced by his longtime musical colleague William “Spaceman” Patterson, “State of Emergency” explores critical social issues affecting young people today through the perspectives of guest rappers/activists Jace the Great, Brother Hahz and Supa Nova Slom.
