Sovereign Soul is a collaborative studio album by American rapper Myka 9 and Canadian producer Factor. It was released on Fake Four Inc. in 2012. Music videos were created for "You Are Free" and "Mind Heights". Thomas Quinlan of Exclaim! gave the album a 9 out of 10, saying: "While Myka and Factor demonstrated their chemistry three years ago on previous collaboration 1969, Sovereign Soul distills that connection into an even better release.

On Sovereign Soul Myka again finds a worthy collaborator in Canadian producer Factor. The two had previously worked together on a full album titled 1969, and while that was a solid and quirky album, it in no way prepared me for the creative leap the duo would be taking here. The biggest shock comes courtesy of Factor's superb production. Whereas 1969 relied heavily on fairly standard hip hop sampling techniques, Factor switches gears here and instead gives us an album ripe with fantastic guitar riffs, gripping basslines, and otherworldly ambiance. He essentially creates musical backdrops.
Sovereign Soul" finds Myka returning to one of his most fruitful partnerships with Canadian producer Factor. There are some partnerships that just work, because no matter how unorthdox the rapper, the producer knows how to provide a sonic landscape that pulls out his best work - a good example being KutMasta Kurt and Kool Keith. When Factor throws in the LL Cool J samples on "Hard Hit" from the hip-hop classic Rock the Bells, it fits like a glove - and yet the track that immediately follows "Ode to Cosmosis" is anything other than a b-boy head nodder. Bask In These Rays" makes the point better than any other song on the album, when his arguably obscure guests do a better job of ripping the mic than he does. Myka 9 makes you do work just to get to his words, and at times the effort feels so overwhelming one would rather not bother.
