Sho Baraka is a Christian rapper that’s allergic to them bullets. Not too long ago, he starred in a cozy music video for ‘Road to Humble, 1979’, a song off “The Narrative” album. The project addresses topics such as social consciousness, issues of everyday life, and the struggles we all face as humans.
On ‘Road to Humble…’, Baraka testifies that it took him 19 years to find his identity, after seeking restitution from all his mistakes. But now, he has faith; and when you look in his face, you will see grace. That’s because an unashamed Baraka is comfortable in his new space.
“All the topics [on ‘Road to Humble, 1979’] are saturated in a Gospel worldview which informs how Sho Baraka wrestles through each train of thought. Just as Sho Baraka has grown up and matured, so has the sound of his music. While still having a hip-hop backbone, the record is heavily influenced by jazz and soul.”
