  • Artist: Neak
  • Track: You Gave Me Life
  • Producer: Pete Rock
  • Album: Neak Rock

On his last mixtape leak, the Chi-town phenom who brought us exclusive freestyle Heartbreaks posed a rhetorical question: “What you know about Neak?” While that joint told us plenty about the emcee's approach to rocking the mic, a more intimate glimpse into the artist's psyche can be found on his newest offering, You Gave Me Life. Premiered earlier today on Prefix, this cut finds Neak airing out his feelings toward his absent father, over a pensive, jazz-sampled beat by Pete Rock (whose instrumentals back the entire project). On the middle verse, Primeridian emcee Simeon Vitz steps into the spotlight to describe how hip-hop helped him overcome the pain of his own father's absence: “I'm leanin' on a purpose, not welfare or church sh*t – every rap wrote is a light year from worthless.” Want to hear Neak share his deep thoughts over more vintage Pete Rock instrumentals? Of course you do – so you'll most definitely want to check back with us on the 26th, when his Prefix, RefinedHype, FakeShoreDrive, YNotMyDream and DJBooth-sponsoredNeak Rocks street album arrives on our mixtape page for streaming and free download.
