Dueling Experts (Verbal Kent and Recognize Ali) are back for another round of dopeness with the impending release of their sophomore project, DE2: Sand The Floor. These artists sound really good together with commanding voices and flows. Very complimentary skill sets. And this beat by Lord Beatjitzu is incredibly strong and anchors the duo well.
Make sure you check the album when it drops on December 11th.
Here’s another single from Recognize Ali’s forthcoming album, Allah’s Favorite, featuring Chicago emcee Verbal Kent and the result is ill. Eyedee laces a stripped down production, yet one that certainly bangs. That production is escorted by scratches implanted by DJ TMB. Kent and Ali prove to be an imposing force on this track. I have high hopes and expectations for this project.
Superior is a producer who is dropping an album on February 17th, entitled The Journey. He has dropped a slew of singles and I haven’t featured them as much as I should so let me share this Verbal Kent joint with you. You can hear that gritty boom bap in his production with the heavy drums, and vocal samples. And Kent is a natural over such productions, channeling the master plans of characters such as Walter White. Really good stuff.
The realness in this song, this album, and this group, really relates to people. There is such a human element to everything they do. They are humbling and at the same time motivating. As a listener and a fan they always inspire me especially during difficult times.
Verbal Kent is back with the backing of Apollo Brown and Freddie Gibbs for his new single, Suitcase Switch. The production from Apollo Brown is absolutely beautiful. It’s got so much soul packed into the span of four minutes. Kent and Gibbs do an admirable job spitting some nice bars with their own divergent styles. Kent keeps a rapid delivery while Gibbs relies on a more methodical approach to rocking the mic. It all comes together nicely.
Verbal Kent’s new album, Anesthesia, drops on September 11th.
Sound Of The Weapon from Verbal Kent and Khrysis are in full effect! I am not sure which number single this is from the album. They have released several, but with each release, video or otherwise, they articulate how dope the project is. Make sure you give it a listen!
Verbal Kent released the album Sound Of The Weapon yesterday. The album is completely produced by Khrysis but the title track is given the 9th Wonder Remix treatment. The remix adds a dash more soul to the original making the song even more heart felt.
Verbal Kent has been tearing it down lately. I can’t wait to hear the album, Sound Of The Weapon, which is entirely produced by Khrysis. The album is dropping on February 18th (that feels too fay away).
I am really glad to see Verbal Kent make moves in the last couple of years. This is a man who has been paying dues for a long time, and his recognition is long overdue. He’s got a very recognizable voice, so every time he hits the mic there’s no questioning the identity. His rhyme writing has also elevated throughout the years. This time he teams up with the legendary, Khrysis for the song, Rapanomics, which is the jump off for their album, Sound Of The Weapon, which drops on February 28th. Peep.
Off of the forthcoming Mello Music Group Compilation, Mandala Vol. 2, Today’s Mathematics, comes the first single from Ugly Heroes. The crew is of course comprised of Verbal Kent, Red Pill, and Apollo Brown. This is a stellar joint if my opinion counts for anything. The sound is really an extension of their self-titled album from earlier this year.
“…some pay dues…I pay attention…”
The compilation drops on January 28th so save the date…
