Kingsley Ibeneche – Realms

Te’Amir Sweeney x Professor H – Circle
Te’Amir Sweeney teams with Professor H for Circle, their live hip-hop album inspired by gritty samples and ’70s jazz and soul.
A circle is defined as set of points existing on a geometrical plane, each located at an equal distance from the center. A set of points that, together, create something more significant than themselves. That is the definition of this album: a music collective, equal in their vision and contributions, coming together to create a project of supreme musical and social relevance.
