Vancouver artist Kresnt woke up this morning to find that has brand new release, Rumi’s Reflection was sitting in the No. 2 spot on Turkey’s Top 10 Albums chart on iTunes, and #2 on Canada’s Top Hip-Hop Albums chart. Not bad for an Afghani-Canadian rap up-and-comer.
“Rumi was an amazing poet and although he was appreciated in his time, his impact is felt more today if not ever.” – Kresnt
Executive Produced by Kane, Nani Beats and Kresnt himself, this 9-song album is a celebration of Kresnt’s growth both as a man and an artist, and an ode to his favorite muse, 13th Century poet, Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī aka Rumi.
“Rumi was an amazing poet and although he was appreciated in his time, his impact is felt more today if not ever. I personally felt connected to his poems as he speaks about finding yourself; I too feel lost in life and am in a constant battle on finding myself. This project is very personal and I wanted to reflect on my life thus far, I hope the people can relate.”
You can find Rumi’s Reflection in various digital streaming outlets including Apple Music and Spotify.
