Chicago wordsmith Verbal Kent (Ugly Heroes) and Spanish-German beat maker Superior have joined forces for the collaborative album Half My Life. Known for his mixture of verbal gymnastics with humor and everyday pathos, Verbal Kent delivers what might be among his most personal rhymes. Speaking on the significance of the album title Kent said, "Half My Life signifies the amount of time I've been at this. I started rhyme writing seriously at 18/19 years old and never looked back. I've always felt grounded in my expectations, fame and fortune was never a factor for me. I love making music enough to do it seriously for 20 years now, and I doubt I'll ever be able to stop."

Superior's creative use of psychedelic, rock, soul and funk samples create an eclectic yet cohesive musical backdrop. Some examples of the chemistry include the first single "The Little Things" which is Kent's version of the love joint (see Common's "The Light") but more in Seinfeld territory. Tracks like "Classic Shit" and "For The Love" are deeply biographical numbers while there is also straight quality emceeing cuts including "Go Get The Dank" and "Steven Hawking Walking." Guests that get it in on the fun include Vic Spencer, Sonnyjim, Recognize Ali and Lance Ambu.

Initially linking up on a track on Superior's album The Journey (2017) the duo realized that they were a good combination. Speaking on the album process Kent adds, "When Superior started sending me beats I started realizing his beats are emotional, so I let them lead the way as a result a lot of the content is reflective." Half My Life represents the budding of a serious team for boom bap lovers,
