The 7 Piece Rap Group Release Their Highly Anticipated Third Studio Album
After releasing singles ‘Live a Little’, ‘N. Michigan Gospel’, and 49er, 99 Neighbors have finally dropped their latest album- Wherever You’re Going I Hope It’s Great (Nice Work/Warner Records)– produced by Brasstracks, Crusty Cuts, Jared Fier, Johnny Dutra, Juju (99 Neighbors), Kyle Stemberger, Lido, and Somba.
The 14 track project starts off with the jazz infused track ‘Rageless Hope’– which does a great job setting the stage for the unraveling story to come. Rageless Hope paints a picture of the groups upbringing and experiences. It faces the criticism, backlash, and well-meaning, albeit ill-conveyed, advice that the group most likely received as they’ve pushed forward towards becoming reconciled with their past. The project ends with the track ‘Tortine’ which conveys the feeling acceptance and pride. The guys are focusing on the strides they’ve made rather than on the pain of the past.
The entire album is an introspective and slightly therapeutic journey dressed up in infectious melodies and hard hitting hooks. Listen to Wherever You’re Going I Hope It’s Great below.
