Cody had this to say about the new video in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine: “There’s a fresh, creative energy and rising consciousness on the African continent and throughout the diaspora. ‘I’ve Been Life’ is one of the many ways in which I hope to make a healthy contribution to this promising movement.”
Universally acclaimed for his Shortlist Prize nominated 2002 debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, not to mention The Roots retooled version of The Seed, Cody ChesnuTT is a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious ruminations continue to set the bar for what modern soul music can look and sound like.
A full-blown tower of soul and driving brass stabs in the Mayfield / Gaye tradition, Landing On A Hundred sketches out a man’s road to redemption after years of womanizing and crack addiction, and the power and labour of slow-burning marital love that eclipses mere material expressions of affection.
