COD student rapper known as Spirit of Truth, promotes “awareness and awakening”with self-produced album debut

By   /   April 22, 2013  /   Comments Off


I’ll be totally honest; usually when people send me music I can anticipate Garage Band loops for six minutes, but Spirit of Truth’s Spiritual Warfare album production is total quality. But don’t just take my word for it; the comment section of the album’s UGHH.com page (Underground Hip Hop) is brimming with praise.

The Chicago native is inspired mostly by his tough upbringing: “music became my sense of therapy to deal with the heartbreak of being alone as a young man.”

Therapy that any listener could agree has evolved into a passion for the promising hip-hop

artist. There is a realness to Spirit of Truth

conveyed throughout the album in his lyrics that range from everything to politics, abandonment and even spirituality.
The underlying theme with Spiritual Warfare is that it demands you to have an opinion.
Good or bad, these verses are going to make you think.

The inspiration for the release was “the current state of humanity” and additionally, Spirit of Truth’s adverse feelings about today’s rap music. He aims more to inspire others in similar situations: “[I aim to] motivate those with a similar struggle… that blossomed with age into

a tool used to inform my fellow people at the bottom of the totem pole.”

Spiritual Warfare features a host of guest appearances, some include help from Army of the Pharaohs and fellow local artists, Do Or Die.

You can purchase and preview the album by heading to UGHH.com and searching ‘Spiritual Warfare’ or you can go to codcourier.org to see the music video for album track, Hypnotized.

Catch the album release party featuring support from MC Juice, Do Or Die, and Robot Hilarious at Subterranean on May 25, 9:30 p. m. (2011 W North Ave., Chicago).
