Hip-Soul-Hop as created by The CrossRhodes is both musically and lyrically dense. Felton's skills as an intelligent wordsmith are on full display, as are the emotionally wrenching pleas which make DeVaughn's R&B offerings so popular. Yet within this context, DeVaughn's tenor is transformed into a siren call for consciousness through encouragement.
"Footprints On The Moon" serves as sixteen track call to action for black America. Stark observations and admonishments are balanced by uplifting song slogans ripe for implanting in today's young minds bewildered by the current state of affairs in America and communities of color around the world.
Raheem DeVaughn and Wes Felton ARE The CrossRhodes.
