In 2003, while walking down an empty alley near Clark and Pratt in Chicago, Verbal Kent had his throat slashed with a knife by an acquaintance. Kent managed to make it to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston as blood poured from his neck. He received nearly 100 stitches, and took two months to recuperate. The impact was unimaginable, an incident like this shades everything going forward for some time. It’s been a decade now since that incident changed Verbal Kent’s life forever, and now The Windy City is back in the news with unprecedented gang violence these past few years - something Verbal decided to address in his own way. Far from a nihilist, Verbal finds meaning in the struggles he and his city live through.
This is The Sound of The Weapon an unabashed look at living through anything and loving everything.
The cause of it is truth.
