Koncreat – “On My Mind” | @koncreat

Published

on

Philly musician, Koncreat, was born Jamar Jones on March 14, 1991, in North Philadelphia and raised in West Philadelphia, he formed a short-lived group with neighborhood friends Source Waveron and Murda Meen named, Critical Bars in 2009. The trio released a mixtape: Critical Condition in February 2011, which soon led to their break-up. Following the short-lived group, Koncreat embarked on a solo career.

Koncreat became musically inspired at the of 7, where his early rhymes began. Born into poverty, he used rhyming to escape his day to day reality. With the abrupt disappearance of his mother, Koncreat was forced to relocate to his father’s home in West Philadelphia. After the sudden change he lost his passion for rhymes, but soon after became musically inclined by playing the violin at age 12. This opened a gateway for Koncreat to soon begin creating his own pieces of music.

Fully inspired and influenced by Hip-Hop artists such as Jadakiss, Styles P, and Cassidy, Koncreat wanted to take his writing to another level, record and promote. With no studio to record his inspired thoughts, he used his earned money to buy cheap microphones from his local discount store. With an acquired computer from a close friend, Koncreat began to record on his computer’s built-in software. This soon led Koncreat to craft his own productions and excel in his abilities.

Now a full-fledged artist, producer, and engineer Koncreat has worked with many local and non-local talent.

The Philly native starts off 2021 with his first release in 5 years, the self-produced single, “On My Mind.”

“This track speaks about past insecurities I’ve had in the past and how it made me with newer confidence today,” Koncreat says.

“On My Mind” also speaks of social injustices and how the black community should do more to achieve what they deserve.

“On My Mind” is set to drop in early January 2021 on all digital music platforms.

SPEECH – A Different World (Reaction To Capitol Insurrection)

 “This song had to be made to become proactive in shaping our collective future, because the rebellion that happened on January 6, 2021, in Washington D.C. was the curtain being pulled back on race, lies, and darkness in America,” Speech explains. “It’s obvious that about half of America is living in a fictitious bubble and are responding accordingly. That’s why I wanted to share facts about the lawlessness and hypocrisy that was occurring. We may be at the start of another Civil war and a lot of bloodshed.” -SPEECH

Atlanta, GA…Like millions of other Americans, Grammy Award-winning artist Speech of the legendary Afro-centric Hip Hop group Arrested Development watched in horror as a swath of die-hard Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. As the dedicated MC he is, Speech put the pen to paper and spit out the single “A Different World,” an anthemic call-to-action that both preserve his artistic integrity and passion for socio-political issues.

“On the night of the terrorist attack that already killed five people, I did a YouTube post, I posted various things on social media, but none of it seemed adequate, especially from a music documentation perspective,” he said of the song’s evolution. “So, I went into the studio, pulled out my Beat Thang, sampler, etc. The jazz/boom bap energy for this song was intentional, meant to be a throwback energy from the ‘90s-type approach. In my opinion, those sensibilities lend themselves to reflection, grooves, and hope, while still showing the urgency of this moment. I also purposely rhymed with a higher pitch, cuz I wanted my emotions of helplessness, rage but also engagement to come through.” -SPEECH

“A Different World” follows Expansion Pt. 1, Speech’s first solo EP in 14 years, and will appear on his upcoming full-length album Expansion. As he flirts within the song’s breakdown, “This is a time for good-hearted people of all races that love Hip Hop to show the world a path to peace and truth! Plot, Plan, Strategize, Organize and Mobilize. Please spread the vibes. We aren’t helpless, we can make a different world.”
