Watch “Sleep (The Fraternity) – Duke” on YouTube

Sleep’s debut album sent shock waves through listeners when the visuals dropped.  Lockland 95 is a concept album centered on the sector of Cincinnati known as Lockland.  Each track is introduced by Sleep giving a little background information on the people in the track followed by a spoken word segment.

His ability to tell you a story is made apparent in this album.   The track Tiffany deals with prostitution.  Did I mention he tells the tale through the eyes of the subject?  An incredible feat of artistry, Sleep dictates a tale of an entire city in this album.

This is Duke.   A troubled youth who gets involved in gang violence.   Watch his story unfold.  Tell me what you think in the comments.
