Bill Cosby Releasing A Hip Hop album?

Bill Cosby is 70-years old and now out of the blue he wants to be in the music business. He claims that his album will be different from the music we hear today(a different type of message). The album is titled "Cosby Narratives Vol. 1: State of Emergency", it will be releasing next month. More than likely it will be some sort of "build up your self-esteem" or giving advice type album. I think the hip hop community has had enough of that thanks to Lyfe Jennings S.E.X. that surprisingly became one of the most played songs, hopefully some youths benefited from it but I seriously doubt it. These days doing the wrong thing is basically the "thing to do". It's hard to get that type of message out, because we have so many artists showing everyone how to do the wrong thing. The truth is that type of music will sell vs putting out a song delivering a positive message. I think hip hop could use some positivity but Bill I think it will be a waste!
