The Hip Hop Soul Revival (EP)

by Suave

  • Streaming + Download

    Jazz improvisations, classic r&b love, spoken word and social consciousness, with a feel good gospel tone, a splash of funk, and soulful lyrics over authentic hip hop beats – this, is The Hip Hop Soul Revival. The newest project from New Orleans artist, Suave reconnects us with the spirit of soul music. His thought-provoking lyrics and subtle baritone harmonies take us on a ride through the thoughts of a young black man striving to better himself and the world. We remember the lingering devastation of Hurricane Katrina; we hear about his sorted upbringing and lifelong love for music, and he ever so humbly boasts about his musical capabilities while reminding aspiring artists to not sell their souls. And, we meet the “Educated Black Woman” who reminds him of music – she walks like a bass line – he wants to be her “Soul Lover Man” on a “Sunny Soulful Summer Day.” Suave’s album addresses hate and promotes love. So creatively and masterfully relevant for those new to hip hop soul and those who already cherish the genre
