RAHEEM speaks Love & War!May 27, 2010
The latest edition of Blues & Soul also comes up trumps, with this brilliant new interview with Raheem DeVaughn talking in-depth about The Love & War Masterpeace… and on being a hippy!
Says Rah: “I’m a modern-day hippie. So, with half of the album being socially conscious, I definitely wanted to bring people to a higher level of consciousness – and a higher level of love – through the vibration of the music. You know, conceptually it was actually very well thought-out. So, while the plan from the gate was to have the two vibes – social conscience and love/romance – it still all gelled together. And, with that being definitely something that Marvin Gaye was known for, I think that’s why I get those comparisons with him. Because I’m able to bring that same philosophy and thought-process into the music.”
