KirkLuye which comes from the heart of an artist who celebrates the hope found in the building of the city and in redemption from a hard past. His lyrics are the poetry of a true rapper.
Luye’s sound resonates with the rhythms found on the streets and in the neighborhoods of Chicago. Since his start as a musician, he has grown as an artist, expanding his sound and widening his musical scope. Luye’s work has received acclaim from local artists, fans and well-known DJ’s, who cite the “extremely high quality,” of its production and hail it as very needed in the city.
The Spread,” Luye’s third hip-hop album, which contains the self-titled single “Luye,” is drastically different from his previous work, due to Luye’s partnership with Producer Dynamics. It also features other local musicians, including Sarah Amelie, Marcus Cannon, Adam AD, Cody Harrison, L.A., Deja and Dayleah, Hamon Kim and Shevelle Walton.
“Fiercely passionate in his belief in our human potential to rise out of the ashes of our suffering and pain and begin again, Kirk Luye nevertheless refuses to equate “beginning again” with “beginning somewhere else.” To Luye, redemption and rebuilding can—and do—occur in the very places of our greatest heartaches. It is for this reason that Luye’s music, emerging out of the ashes of his experiences on Chicago’s streets, has become his offering back to those local places that have most shaped him. The message of Luye’s lyrics is this: we don’t have to be stuck anywhere. With this in mind, Luye’s verses dare his listeners to dream of better versions of themselves, their streets, their neighborhoods, and, most of all, their great city.” -Katlyne Heath, CMO Editorial Manager
