Palestinian-American MC and Producer Jabbar delivers his instrumental single “Perspective” from his stash and it’s nothing but pure freshness. The experimental approach makes it more engaging and different from most instrumentals out there as the dynamics and switch ups are well crafted and very subtle too.
“Perspective” is one of the tracks off his newly released album “Matters of the Mind”. It’s an experimental instrumental album. The album is a reflection of how the mind works, constantly going from one thought to the next, which is reflective of the music. Most of the songs on the album morph into another entirely different melody if not enhanced with different instrumentation.
