Album Alert: Neak – “KWESBAAR”

The Chicago-based artist/producer Neak delivers his latest self-produced album, KWESBAAR (meaning “vulnerable”), which serves as his third independent release.

Consisting of 13 tracks, the project blends together elements of Hip-Hop, jazz, soul, funk with an emphasis on organic instrumentation that gives KWESBAAR a hearty, well-rounded sound.

Neak on the creative process of KWESBAAR:

“My goal was to design a musical platform that allowed me to discuss my greatest insecurities, agonizing internal fears, and many trials and tribulations of people through many walks of life.

KWESBAAR pushes my musical prowess to a level beyond my past; demonstrating my love for retro production and true-to-life raps.”

The album itself is a groove, but tracks that can’t help but to standout are the warm and funky “Do It For Love” featuring Rita J, the buttery-smooth “Gold” featuring Peter Jericho, and the eclectic, spacey “Dreamer’s Sadness” featuring Taylor Iman.

Stream and support KWESBAAR on Bandcamp below and also on Apple Music, Spotify, TiDAL and Google Play.
