Verble I – Lifestyles Of Inspired Artists [Mixtape]

Calgary, AB – On Jan. 20, Calgary’s own Verble I released his Lifestyles Of Inspired Artists mixtape. We’ve been waiting on this 16-track project for quite some time, now. And Verble I delivers.

The tape includes Verble’s own take on some of our favourite industry players’ jams (Kanye West, Just Blaze, and then some) as well as a few sweet collaborations with up-and-comers, and some collaboration tracks with some of Calgary’s finest. You’ll catch some dope production, courtesy of Grimehouse’s Q-82 and Prince V (Verble I’s local go-to producer). The mixtape is a glimpse at the going-ons of the lifestyle lived by one of Calgary’s most inspired artists: Verble I. Cop a listen to the mixtape below, and head over to Bandcamp to purchase the project for $10.

Verble I has been on the scene for over a decade now. He moved from the YEG to the YYC when he was in his youth and became one of the founding members of Calgary’s legendary Dangerous Method crew. But as the crew members grew older, many of them left the scene to pursue other endeavours. And Dangerous Method eventually called it quits. But Verble I used the crew’s disbanding as an opportunity to further his own rap career. And we’re glad he did. Dude’s got the gnarliest chopper rhyme schemes. This latest project is just the beginning of what’s to come.
