MarQ Spekt - At War With The Shadows (LP)
While so many artists make overtures back to the 90's both in style and production in an attempt to capture that essence, this album album actually harkens back to a more modern, independent age and pushes it forward. It truly feels as if it could have mixed within the Rawkus, Def Jux underground HipHop era. After a long and underrated history in the depths of the underground this project brings new light. After releasing projects with Kno, and Blockhead this Project finds Spekt being Produced entirely by Prospek an Award Winning New Orleans musician/producer/engineer who has worked with Keith Murray, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Pumkinhead, Nesby Phips and others. There are layers of depth and grit to the record but also some introspection. As you should expect heavy beats and signature raw rhymes. Features include some of the finest pens in the HipHop world from Roc Marciano to Vordul Mega. Listen to the album to grasp the understanding of how he uses Shadows to spread light.
