A Christian Can Rhyme Like That: “Fire Squad Freestyle” by @eyeamrecords Fr33 Will

Newly established Eye Am Records artist Fr33 Will takes on J. Cole’s “Fire Squad” and revamps it for the gospel/Christian hip hop heads AND really for any true hip hop head as this is a dope, clean freestyle. However, I think Fr33 Will teased us in a major way on this track – we are praising you (and this freestyle) and looking forward to more!

About the track:

Eye Am Records Artist Fr33 Will (Pronounced Free Will) did some lyrical damage last night to J.Cole’s “Fire Squad” instrumental.  The track is apart of a series called “Saturday Night Live Freestyles”. Similar to what rappers Fabolous & Jadakiss have been doing every Friday. Fr33 Will on the other hand tho is dropping a new freestyle every  Saturday for the whole summer. Fr33 also challenged his label mates and many other artist (Secular & Christian) to join in the SNLF movement.  Some artist have decided to go up for the challenge. Fr33 Will says he is just trying to stay consistent until the release of his project “The Fr33 World” dropping later this year.

About Fr33 Will
“Fr33 Will whose real name is Levon Freeman, was born and raised in the Bronx, NY.
He picked up the art of Hip Hop at the age of 8 years old, but it wasn’t until High School that Fr33 started taking his gift seriously. He teamed up with a group known as Rampage in Brooklyn, later to join Wreckhouse in the North Section of the Bronx. It was at Wreck house were free met artist Denzil Porter and Producer Claws, During this time he went by the name Young Woo. He was known for hardcore lyrics about sex, drugs and gang affiliation. The 2 played a big part in Free’s life and music, showing him how to transition from a rapper to an artist. After a few years of working with Wreckhouse Fr33 Will made another transition and became a Christian”
 
Soon after he change his name to Free Will and team up with The Triangle Trade. The group as been letting the world know that a Christian can “rhyme like that”

Pure Hip Hop Era: “Love and Happiness” – by Partners In Irony | @PartnersInIrony

image

“Back when backpacking was more than just a tactic.” – Partners In Irony

Using an Al Green sample (which is laced throughout the track and sometimes at uniquely teasing-like intervals) and classic drum beats rhythms, hip hop duo, Partners In Irony, pay homage to the hip hop greats with their track “Love and Happiness”. Read more and enjoy!

“The forefathers of rap came up in a time when all it took to get a crowd moving was a few drum sounds and a maybe sample or two. What they birthed was the purest form of Hip Hop. “Love and Happiness” is an ode to this era, a time where artists tapped into the versatility of words, writing rhymes that not only documented their surroundings, but were often carefree and braggadocios. The underground shows and cyphers constituted arenas where names were made and reputations were built, where careers were won and lost. It wasn’t about the catchiest hook or the craziest persona—none of that mattered if you couldn’t go bar for bar.

Over production from FORTY7 and an Al Green sample, we capture the essence of that time while imprinting our modern style onto it. This song is not about being stuck in the past, but paying homage to the greats as we embrace the evolution of the genre we love. We couldn’t be here without the legends, but it’s our turn to take the torch.”

Peace to The GODS: “Heaven Sent” – BazaSon | @BazaSonZA ft. @Ratteezy x @WahLi_cpt (prod. by @PrinciplezSA)

Hailing from Matatiela, Kwazulu Natal, hip hop artist and Africa Music Award nominee, BazaSon has unleashed his latest track entitiled “Heaven Sent”. With an assist from fellow artists Rattex and Wah-Li this track has determination written all over with it’s high energy chorus “I’m holding this title/Will never give up!” and hard hitting beats. Granted, there is more than one language being used on this track (a beautiful thing) the production by Principlez, culminates into a beautiful build up to the self-motivating theme of the song with each emcee effortlessly holding their own weight. “Peace to the Gods!” – I think this is sure to be somebody’s new Rocky Balboa theme song… So, raise up and y’all enjoy!

What Is A Life Worth?: “Three-Fifths” by sammus | @sammusmusic

“They don’t give a fuck about us,
If he brown, when in doubt,
Gun him down –
And now what?
I wonder how much,
Y’all judge is the worth of my soul…
I tend round up 3/5 to a whole.”
– sammus

“Three-Fifths” is a song about the cost of being viewed as subhuman. Armed with powerful rhymes from upstate NY spitter Sammus and rich production from her NuBlack Music Group labelmate, D Nilsz, this track forces listeners to remember those who have paid the ultimate price for being black in America. Above all, “Three Fifths” is a song that reminds black people that they are whole even though they are often treated like three-fifths of a human by law enforcement.

The song will be featured on the soundtrack of the forthcoming Independent film “Rodney.”
