The Cornel West Theory is a band born in the belly of the beast, Washington DC. Inspired by the struggles of DC’s ghettoes, Hip Hop, and the center of world politics, their music is rooted in hip hop, but smashed into a firebrand sound containing elements of punk, go-go, blues, jazz, and industrial noisescapes. No one genre can define or contain them. This is Type 1 music.
With the blessing of Dr. Cornel West, the Princeton University professor and renowned author, the band takes its name from his prolific writings and philosophies, which have shaped contemporary thought throughout the world.
The group has released 5 albums, and is set to release their 6th album soon followed by several new projects in 2018.
Cornel West Theory will be performing with DJ Underdog for this special event.
