I didn’t take any breaks,” explained Noble. “All this was live. I wanted it to feel like you with me, like if it’s a journey. He could had just sent me some guitars and went into the studio and record, but it wouldn’t have felt like how you it’s gonna feel when you hear it.”
Aside from the lyrics, past of the journey has Noble talking about the late Yaki Kadafi, Noble’s 2021 heart attack, to his words of wisdom encouraging listeners to “lend a hand” while putting an end to the hate.
With one a few features, the 8 song project could be on the beginning. Depending on the response for “Fire In My Soul,” fans may see a full length acoustic album with all new verses from the Outlaw veteran.
“Everybody get the project. Hit me up on Instagram and let me know your thoughts of it. I was talking to my guy yesterday and he was saying he thinks it’s the first hip hop acoustic album,” said Noble. “I see somebody write in the comments saying Jay-Z did it, but I don’t remember Jay-Z doing a whole acoustic album.”
Back in 2001, Jay-Z along with MTV released an Unplugged. Although dubbed as a live album, Hov was accompanied by a live band, as opposed to Noble and The Aspects delivering a one hundred percent acoustic experience.
