Soul Sessions Album
Richard Raw takes over this year’s BlackFriday (November 29th) with the release of his eagerly awaited sophomore album, Soul Sessions.
“This album has been a long time coming,” states Raw, who has spent the past two years working on the project. “Soul Sessions is a combination of musical elements that have been missing from hip-hop for a long time. I am mixing live instrumentation with the normal beats and rhymes flavor of hip-hop.”
To build excitement for the album, Raw released a buzz track and video entitled “Marvin’s Groove” which is Raw’s ode to the late, great jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown. The song, full of smooth thought-provoking lyrics, features Sa’eed Abuwi on trumpet with beat production by Juzz1. Although not the album’s official single, “Marvin’s Groove” is taking off as one of this fall’s premiere hip-hop tracks.
Soul Sessions is the new fusion of hip-hop and jazzy soul music. Without a single compromise in lyrical content or pop radio acceptability, Soul Sessions promises to be the album that reawakens hip-hop’s core with lyrics for days, sultry-soulful hooks, live instrumentation and bangin’ beats.
Look out for the early November release ofSoul Sessions’ official single “Definition”, featuring hip-hop heavyweights Hezekiahand John Robinson.
