Verbal Kent (of Ugly Heroes) - Raponomics
In economics, everything proceeds according to the laws of supply and demand. As a practitioner of Raponomics Verbal Kent does things a bit differently; the Chi-town rhymesayer supplies the kind of music he wants to supply, and “if you ain’t feelin’ [him], then too bad!” Though it may limit his potential for mainstream success, the uncompromising attitude the Ugly Heroes member showcases on his first solo feature is sure to score him points among underground heads in The DJBooth. Backed by the chopped guitar and vocal samples of project collaborator Khrysis, Kent mixes diabolical battle rhymes with references to Margaret Thatcher and the Ottoman Empire. For more hard-hitting beats and allusive bars, check out Kent and Khrysis’s Sound of the Weapon LP when it drops February 18, via Mello Music Group.
