Freedom Writers – For The Change [Video]
Toronto, ON – Watchout! Freedom Writers are at it again. The decidedly anti-establishment collective (Theo 3, Frankie Payne, Adam Bomb, Tona & Progress) first performed this new song “For The Change” at Manifesto in September to rave reviews. I actually missed their performance and never heard the end of it.
Music executive David “Click” Coxx commented on their style saying “Freedom Writers are for the people. Their music’s for the people and that’s something you don’t hear a lot of in this city. I can’t think of too many artists that really speak for the people and not speak for themselves. Everybody wants to talk about “Oh I’m the shit. I’m poppin’ bottles” and all that shit, but Freedom Writers are coming with some knowledge for the people.”
This video borrows its theme from the Brady Bunch and sees the 5 MCs weave in and out of bars seamlessly. Big Sproxx, the group’s mastermind produced the song and directed the video. For more on Freedom Writers visit FreedomWritersMusic.com . Click the jump for the full press release.
Change is a small word but a monumental action.
When you willingly take someone out of their comfort zone and question what is perceived as important, standard, reliable and safe…there’s no turning back from that decision.
The unprecedented buzz across the city of Toronto for Powerhouse Hip Hop collective THE FREEDOM WRITERS is largely due to the fact that each member flies in the face of conventional sounds and styles, maintaining a completely original approach to making music. The recent Dundas Square performance in downtown Toronto in front of 10,000 transfixed concertgoers was proof positive that something has to change, and change it will. With a groundswell of support from fans, media, radio and fellow artists, many of whom appear in the brand new FREEDOM WRITERS video “For the Change” directed by Big Sproxx, these 6 unique and talented artists are set to take the World by storm.
A hard hitting production layered with horns and an infectious bassline, “For the Change” features Emcees Tona, Adam Bomb, Progress, Frankie Payne and Theo3 weaving in and out with rapid fire flows that rise in intensity with every line. Produced by Big Sproxx, this showstopper that captivated thousands and stole the show on a bill with many notable International acts is now available for purchase at www.freedomwritersmusic.bandcamp.com STREAM and PURCHASE NOW!
