Raheem DeVaughn releases ” The Love & War Master Peace”

The album was released on March 2, and features guest appearances by various artists. Ludacris and Jill Scott loaned their vocal talent alongside DeVaughn. The album is packed with artists that contrast in a nice blended way.

“Bulletproof” is the first single from the album. It was released on Sept.22 and features Atlanta rapper/actor Ludacris. This song speaks to today’s young audience of listeners, as well as those of a more mature age, with a bit of hip-hop flavor.

The two performed the record at the 2009 Soul Train Awards. Raheem DeVaughn released “Lyin’ to myself” on Dec. 1 and the song “I Don’t Care” on Jan.8. DeVaughn’s third effort seems to be an uplifting album and of great musical quality, however there is nothing perfect within its content.

Its primary problem would be with the albums fifteenth track entitled “Nobody Wins A War.” With artists like Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, and Ledisi; the song focuses on the featured star-power rather than the message.

The final song features Damian Marley on a track titled “Revelations 2010.” The reggae style that he brings just makes for an even greater song among the two. “The Love & War MasterPeace” has been released under Jive Records, and there are two versions of the album, the standard containing one disc and the deluxe edition that will be a double disc set.
