The uber-talented producer/singer/songwriter/rapper has been grinding his way through the Midwest music scene since the mid- 2000’s. Building his catalog and honing his craft along the way, Junior has become somewhat of a musical force in his hometown of Springfield, IL. Collaborating with a local who’s who, all while creating some of the areas most prolific sounds bring us to “Ten 28”.

The 6 track project boasts a Tupac (2pac) intro, and song named after the legend with poignant, well delivered, lyrics that even he would be proud of. Handling the bulk of the production on the release allows Pasare to showcase his skills both in front of the mic and behind the boards. With a sound that translates well with new wave fans and Hip Hop aficionados alike “Ten 28” may be the new grail for what Hip Hop is supposed to be.
