Freedom Writers – Real [Audio] #NOW
Toronto, ON – “Real” is just that. An on the spot, stake your claim, speak your piece type of track that was the first recorded collaboration of the FREEDOM WRITERS. Amazing lyricist Progress would enter the fray immediately after, but this meeting of the minds between Tona, Theo3, Frankie Payne, Adam Bomb and Sproxx drew from the influences in the studio that day, the throwback feel of the beat and the developing chemistry that would lead to many great songs, concepts and even a full album entitled NOW. Stay tuned, there’s much more on the way.
“There’s a unique vibe when you descend down the dark basement steps at Sproxx’s studio, wind through the corridor and end up in the proverbial shrine to all things late 80′s to mid 90′s hip-hop. Pristine positioned 12” vinyl records adorn the walls from the likes of Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Gang Starr and Public Enemy. Quotable lyrics from the Source magazine have been meticulously clipped and pinned at eye level. If you didn’t come to write rhymes or immerse yourself in the Boom Bap laced production jumping out of the monitor speakers, you’d be missing a chance to create that classic rap music.” – Theo3
