Upsire – Shadows In The Night (Album)

Chicago-based emcee, Uspire, delivers his first solo work, Shadows In The Night, a conceptual-based project dealing in the sharp realities of life. Backed entirely by top notch instrumentals from the legendary Pete Rock, Uspire takes you on a winding journey through varying levels of pain and misfortune. In the hour of darkness, he provides a source of light in an ambitious attempt to revive souls and restore faith in humanity. While creating a paradigm shift within the mind, he invites the listener to re-examine past experiences and see them from a new perspective.

This project offers social commentary, diverse storytelling, and points of introspection, all while maintaining a complex rhyme style. Guest features include Add-2 and Sohjé, both Chicago natives. Album artwork done by Domi V. Mixed and mastered by Albert Romero.
