Product Details


A decade ago, while walking down an empty alley near Clark and Pratt in Chicago, Verbal Kent had his throat slashed with a knife by an acquaintance. Kent managed to make it to Saint Francis Hospital as blood poured from his neck. He received nearly 100 stitches, the blade of the knife missing the jugular by a mere centimeter, and took months to recuperate. The impact of course was unimaginable; an incident like this shades everything going forward for some time. It's been 10 years since that incident changed Verbal Kent's life, and now The Windy City is back in the news with unprecedented violence these past few years. Far from a nihilist, Verbal finds meaning in the everyday struggles he and his city live through - adding to it hard-line braggadocio, comedic flare, and social awareness. The Sound of the Weapon is an unabashed look at living through anything and loving everything. The cause of it is truth. Sound of the Weapon is Verbal Kent's most complete album to date.

Verbal has always been one to lock in amazing production. His last album – with Ugly Heroes – was produced entirely by Detroit's Apollo Brown. This time around everything is produced by Khrysis (Jean Grae, Evidence, Talib Kweli, Elzhi). Add in a bonus track produced by 9th Wonder and you've got a fully stacked solo album from Verbal Kent. The new album, Sound of the Weapon, is set to be released February 18, 2014 on Mello Music Group.

Comment: Real talk...Khrysis wasted his beats. And the 9th Wonder remix at the end should've gone to a different MC. Sorry.

Comment: Ok listen you 3 star giving clown, this album is solid and skillfully put together, you are criticizing a work of art that you cannot make so shut up, if you don't like it don't even bother commenting on it, it's strong and production and MCing is top tier, better then the commercial garbage you crank.

Comment: Dope album! VK's best album yet. Khrysis production is NASTY on here. It's the same lame cry babies always dissing good albums on this site. Mello Music Group is my favorite label and can't wait for L'Orange's album to drop. Peace

Comment: thank God khrysis has been resurrected. at a point in time it seemed like he was experimenting or trying to change his style of production but now I can say that "khrysis is back on the boards with the heat". verbal kent equally works hard on the album and arguably, this is his best album yet.

Comment: Verbal Kent's best album. For those new to Verbal it's more about powerful cadences and riding the beat than deep insightful commentary - though he has moments (sound of the weapon). Khrysis is incredible on production.

Comment: Damn, damn, damn…Khrysis is an ILL producer. But there are some SERIOUSLY average beats on here. There are 2 REAL DOPE beats but that's about it. Big letdown. Khrysis is better than this. And honestly, Verbal Kent is nothing special as an emcee. His voice is kind of annoying, he doesn't say anything spectacular. He's just an average rapper. Oh well...

Comment: Verbal Kent's been creating some good stuff recently. I was into Ugly Heroes, and the couple joints on Mandala were cool too. This should be good.
