Baltimore rapper Sullee J has dropped his latest album, previously announced exclusively at HEM News Agency, this past weekend (1 February 2019) after a short hiatus and working on some new material. The new collection of his hits, titled simply ‘Spear’ is now available for listening and purchase.
The hip-hop musician, who has had a very prolific 2018, releasing several tracks and collaborations with artists from as far as Iran, has kindly shared with you his experience and feelings behind the Spear project, his motivations and the drive that made this stunning new album a reality.
Find beat. Record. Release. For years, this routine has been on repeat. Moving from state to state, job to job, and in the midst trying to complete one of the greatest projects, it’s been like a love-hate relationship. I’ve felt like quitting every time I’d turn on the radio. Then I’d get messages from fans across the world telling me how I’ve changed their lives and my inspiration would spark again. I’ve recorded over a 100 songs and at one point all of them were tracks I considered perfect. I had to listen to each one multiple times, and finally came down to a select few. The funny thing is, I’ve never went back and changed a song after I had it mixed and mastered. SPEAR is a very special project, from the cover to every song. The cover was purposely made abstract, giving it a variation of perspective. Every song contains a piece of my spirit. Whether I speak on relationships, friendships, politics, God, and just different scenarios, it’s all me. Every song holds a truth about me. I don’t fabricate my music like most artists you listen to nowadays, because music to me is about originality. It is my gravity. Spear is my reality. The album has features from artists such as Shady Records, KXNG Crooked, and Beast 1333.
