Neak - INNENSTADT
INNENSTADT centers around the extreme-stark dynamics of inner-city black culture and how it affects day-to-day existence. With diminishing resources and development, many things shift internally pertaining to a person's well-being. It is documented here through hip-hop sonics and true-to-heart emotions of Chicago rap artist/producer Neak navigating a multitude of chaotic emotional and economic dynamics.
Cultivated to shed light on "What's Going On," Innenstadt is a musical journey in sound right into the depths of inner-city blues while headlining aspects that exacerbate this very way-of-life. Album features Rashid Hadee, Philmore Greene, Yarbrough, Slot-A, and Since9ine6ix.
Artist Bio: If your father, Robert Kelly of the R&B/Gospel/Soul group "The Kelly Brothers," performed alongside Funk & Soul legends like James Brown & Sam Cooke, chances are being a product of your environment meant only one thing…following the path of musicianship set directly before him. Chicago-based Hip-Hop artist / producer Neak draws vivid verbal portraits which find inspiration in the spirit of U.S. culture and his own deep-seating personal experiences. Naming Nas, 2Pac, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Common, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Elzhi, Jay-Z, etc. as his main lyrical influences, Neak preserves the aesthetics of true-to-life Rap; authenticity, originality, and excellence all evoke a heartfelt emotion for listeners of his music.
