Grand Puba Declares that "The More Things Change" The More They Stay The Same

In his first single release in six years,  the former Brand Nubian frontman Grand Puba comes at us with the title track to his forthcoming album “The More Things Change.”  Reuniting with indie label Babygrande Records, Grand Puba looks to reflect on the proverb “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” Grand had this to say about the forthcoming release in an interview with AllHipHop.com:

“I have always felt that I am both an MC and messenger for the people. Technology has ushered in the information age and its time for all people to use this age to right the wrongs of the past and set things up for a righteous future. It saddens me to see a new generation experiencing the same social, political and economic challenges that every generation prior has faced. The world is watching everything from police brutality, to the failure of our judicial system, to Hollywood’s continuous inaccurate portrayal of our Egyptian ancestors. The world is watching. I am thrilled to be back with Babygrande to release my new album and to do my part as an MC and as a messenger.”
