Tennessee rapper Case Arnold has been working on his album SO(U)L Theory for the last three years. Last week, he was finally ready to share it with the world.
Arnold explains the title: "If you remove "U" from SOUL, you're Shit Out of Luck."
"The main themes [of the album] really stem from battling to remain yourself in negative life situations, the journey of self-discovery, the idea of soul mates, and the process of trying to remain consistent," he says.
SO(U)L Theory is 15 tracks long and features mainly Tennessee producers (Free P, HD, and Gourmet Groove) and a verse from fellow Tennessee rapper Tim Gent. All in all, it's a great introduction to Arnold's raspy, soulful aesthetic for the uninitiated. You can support Arnold and buy the project here.
