"African Holocaust" - July 13, 2004
Album Tracklist (13)
“African Holocaust is a summary of the state of the world today from our perspective – which is a perspective of the black diaspora. Subject matters range from exposing the negative impact, politically and environmentally of super powers, to the nostalgia for our African heritage.” – David Hinds
