Rapper Kenny’s Myth released last week his new mixtape, “Soul Krops Presents: The Promised Land.” Sampling several sources, including afrobeat music, the album mixes afrofuturism and holistic spirituality. This is the description of the album:
The Promised Land is the overstanding that every man is ONE and thus we are all created perfectly. Standing on certainty we exert out purpose to BE. Superseding Good & Evil, Bad & Good, Right & Wrong and all separate states of mind. Refraining from outward searches of tangible treasures and searching inward for the intangible treasures inside. Let your Spirit be your guide.
Kenny’s Myth caught my ear not only because of his thought-provoking lyrics, but also his rhythmic interplay with the beats, especially in songs like “SoulKropper,” “The Promised Land,” “Gumbo,” and “Progress.”
