Listen to Against The Odds (feat. Jhené Aiko)
Wit. Flow. Drive. These are the monikers that describe Hip-Hop soul artist, Promise. He seamlessly blends conceptual songwriting and potent lyrical content with a focus on life, love & the consciousness of mankind.
Deemed a hip-hop sensation, Promise has the proven ability to take any person beyond the shallow surface of life. As Peace Magazine duly noted: “Promise has a rhyme style reminiscent of Rakim.” His approach to Hip-Hop is old school with new school delivery. “I’m impressed; they compare me to Nas, Common, Kanye West,” he shares. Promise comes with lyrical proficiency, and moving reality based content. Inevitably, this Duck Down Music artist is well on his way to becoming one of the most distinguished artists of his time.
His first project, Awakening boasts features from J.Ivy (Def Poetry), The World Famous Tony Williams (G.O.O.D Music), and Def Jam's newest songstress Jhené Aiko who lends her vocals on the lead track “Against The Odds”. The album also features production credits from 9th Wonder's SoulCouncil front-man E. Jones (Ludacris, Common, Lil' Wayne), in addition to industry newcomer Lord Quest (Schoolboy Q , Asher Roth) and many more.
