Bill Cosby conceived and co-wrote a rap album.

The CD, called “Bill Cosby Presents the Cosnarati: State of Emergency” and released in September, is the latest socially conscious salvo from the comedian, who for more than five years has been increasingly vocal about problems in the black community.

Cosby brings his classic comedy show to Charlotte Sunday for two appearances at Belk Theater.

Cosby worked on the album with friend and music producer William Patterson, and guest artists including Ced-Gee, co-founder ofUltramagnetic MCs.
