Rob O. This one kicks off the trilogy and pushes stretch music to the next level. Christian Scott's forward thinking talent blends genres, using soundscapes filled with explosive energy and a deliberate political voice. The musicians are all first rate and the music is nothing less than spectacular. Favorite track: New Orleanian Love Song.

Moni Continuing to push the music forward. Stretch Music was probably my most-played album last year and this builds on that. So good. Favorite track: New Orleanian Love Song II [X. aTunde Adjuah Remix].

Ruler Rebel is the first in a three-album series collectively titled The Centennial Trilogy.

The series is, at its core, a sobering re-evaluation of the social and political realities of the world through sound. It speaks to a litany of issues that continue to plague our collective experiences. Slavery in America via the Prison Industrial Complex, Food Insecurity, Xenophobia, Immigration, Climate Change, Sexual Orientation, Gender Equality, Fascism and the return of the Demagogue.

The first release in the trilogy, Ruler Rebel, vividly depicts Adjuah's new vision and sound - revealing Adjuah to the listener in a way never heard before via a completely new production methodology that Stretches Trap Music with West African and New Orleanian Afro-Native American styles.
