Kris the $pirit releases debut album Spirit Mode Vol. 1
After unveiling a video for “Boy’s Krazy” last week, Kris the $pirit, half of beloved hip-hop duo The Posterz, today releases his debut album Spirit Mode Volume 1 via Make It Rain Records. It is available now on all digital platforms.
Spirit Mode Vol. 1 is one of two volumes all set to release this year. The lyrics are deep and inspired by Kris’ daily life. Each piece is full of references and vivid images with songs such as the impressive Death & Rebirth, the catchy LIVEURLYFE or the chopped & screwed Channel. The artist started working on his solo material two years ago. I had nowhere to record so I built my own studio and found a producer, he explains. I just want people to hear all my different vibes. I’ve always been an artist. I’m ready to show people my work and my music, show what I’m capable of.
About Kris the $pirit
Thanks to his big Jamaican family (he is the second oldest of 10 children), Kris learned from a very young age how to hustle and make his own path through life. Born in Montreal’s Saint-Henri neighbourhood and raised by his mother, the $pirit credits hearing The Notorious B.I.G.’s posthumous Come On track in his adolescence as a pivotal moment in his relationship with rap. Kanye West’s versatile style also let Kris know that it was OK to be different. I’m allowed to be creative now. I’m not just a street dude, I can be artistic as well, he says of West’s effect on his mindset.
This idea has stayed true throughout the rapper’s brief yet exciting beginning of career. From Huffington Post’s 10 Artists to Follow in 2014, to winning Cult MTL’s Favourite Hip-Hop Act in 2015, $pirit’s work with The Posterz has proven that remaining true to his weird and wonderful self is an asset he intends to maintain on the road ahead.
The unapologetically grimey vibes that the $pirit has followed throughout his fruitful journey are just the start of what’s to come.
Don’t miss Kris the $pirit’s performance on June 9th at MURAL during the Make It Rain Records’ first anniversary event. Tickets are available online.
