It’s been three years since Kembe X released an album, but the Chicago rapper is back in action with I Was Depressed Until I Made This.
Inspired by the ups and downs of this rollercoaster we call life, Kembe has found the light in the darkness and delivers a project engulfed in the idea of self-improvement, self-love, and the ability to survive through tough times.
Equipped with 13 tracks, including “Voices,” “Lftff,” and “Killscope,” the long-awaited follow up to 2016’s Talk Back arrives with high praise and aspirations from the album’s author. “IWDUIMT is going to be this generation’s ‘What’s Going On’ by Marvin Gaye,” Kembe proclaimed on Twitter. “Mark my words.”
Whether that becomes true or not, the album can be heard below. Press play and be sure to add it on your preferred streaming platform.
