Jamla/Roc Nation signee Reuben Vincent comes through with his official debut album, “Love Is War”.
“I worked on ‘Love Is War’ for two years. Conceptually, ‘Love Is War’ is an acknowledgment that as young black men, I feel like we aren’t taught, and given the tools of how to love properly. We don’t know how to love our people, our women, our brothers; and most importantly ourselves,” Reuben says. “When you don’t know how to love yourself you can’t love others the right way, ‘Love Is War’ addresses that. These last two years, I’ve learned a lot about myself, but I still have much to learn. My goal is to love myself properly, and that comes with exploration (internally and externally). That is why I titled the album, ‘Love Is War’, because it is a constant battle to get to that center in your life. We all battle ourselves to get to a place where we can both love and be loved.”
An 11-track offering features guest appearances from Rapsody, Reason, Domani and Stacey Barthe. Production is handled by 9th Wonder, Young Guru, The Soul Council and Vincent himself.
