Sho Baraka is back and on a new label. He was one of the original members of the Reach Records label with Lecrae, Trip Lee, and Tedashii. His last album "Talented X" was released independently. "The Narrative" is his Humble Beast debut.
There's a lot of live instrumentalism. Jazz and soulful tunes. Sho Baraka even tries on some tracks to fuse trap with jazzy sample styled hip hop production.
Favourites for me are "Here", "Road to Humble", "30 & Up", "Soul", "Fathers" and "Kanye Rant".
As with all Humble Beast releases, you can spend money to support the project. But otherwise the album is freely given to whoever gives their email and follows the label on social media.
