In early 2014, Verbal Kent teamed up with North Carolina producer Khrysis and Mello Music Group to release the new album, Sound of the Weapon. The beats are raw and classic, as aggressive as the MC they were paired with. Now, known for his soul samples, speaker slapping drums and 9th Wonder lineage, the album instrumentals from Khrysis are available by themselves for free to the first 1000 fans. As an added bonus, we've included a free bonus beat from 9th Wonder.
