Neak comes from quite the musical heritage. His father is Robert Kelly of The Kelly Brothers, who also performed with James Brown and Sam Cooke. How could he not end up getting into music?
His latest single, "Abstract," sees the Chicago rapper/producer teaming up with Since9ine6ix. "Abstract" isn't like much hip hop I've heard recently. It's polished and mainstream without sounding like everything else out there. It has a laid back and futuristic feel, but doesn't have a cartoony space gimmick. Neak and Since9ine6ix look back to what made hip hop great in the early 90's while looking to the future. They do this without sounding like a throwback or being overly produced or technical.
You can listen to "Abstract" below. The song is available now via Neak's Bandcamp. For more on Neak, check out his website. For more on Since9ine6ix, check him out on Twitter.
