Descending from the tribes of Africa
Inspired by the great black leaders
X-Clan – Heed the Word of the Brother
Blessed with the heart to of African Consciousness, crossing the concrete of Brooklyn, New York, with big black boots, “A black fist, black power and a black man” to stand up and “be a revolutionary for justice”, hip hop group X-Clan blew up the scene and showed knuckle heads that you can be positive, conscious rappers with a social conscious agenda. And in the vain of teachers like KRS1, Public Enemy, Afrika Bambaata, X-clan delivered on a metaphysical level with beats as bumping as their lyrical contents are spirit moving. Originally consisting of Grand Verbalizer Funkin’ Lesson Brother J, Professor X the Overseer, Paradise the Architect, and Sugar Shaft the Rhythm Provider, X-Clan become known and as much for their African centrism and activism in defence of the community, as member of the Blackwatch movement as much as the influenced they inspired in the hip-hop community.
