Dwele’s demo, which is also considered his first album, 1998’s Rize, was sold out of the trunk of his car exuding the DIY ethic that is much more predominant nowadays but wasn’t as prevalent then. Bubbling over with warm Rhodes, unconventional lyrics and soul, soul, soul it helped him score a deal with Virgin where he… released his first studio album Subject. He’s continued to release albums since then and has become an industry favorite.
In between recordings, he stayed in the studio banging out treats for his friends, fans and potential albums. A lot of these tracks have never seen an official release, yet they fell through the cracks and onto the computers of voracious listeners. BamaLoveSoul felt as if these tracks should be heard.
Enter Keep RIZEing to the Top: a SELECTION of Unreleased Dwele Songs from his many unreleased albums and projects. Enjoy and thanks BamaLoveSoul!
