Honesty in rap music…just when you thought that had gone the way of Beta Max & Hammer pants, Free Radio is bringing it back like little face Benjamins, or like in 80’s movies when all you had to do to knock a fool unconscious was sneak up & karate chop them on the back of the neck, A-Team style. You know what else Free Radio learned from the A-Team? Sticking up for the little guy, speaking truth to power and that kinda shit. Also I know that Smidi is a straight thug who will knock you the fuck out but is terrified of flying just like B.A. Burackus, but I’m kind of burying the lead here. My point is that rap music has taken a turn towards celebrating ignorance at every level and while that can be shits & giggles galore, it seems to have become the be all end all of the medium. So at the risk of being indelicate I’ll just say that Free Radio thinks that’s a lot of bologna. Yeah I said it, and pardon my french but I’d go as far as to say it’s a bunch of hooey… you’re all getting a bum steer see? Well in the interest of righting the ship Gurp City South’s young bucket rap savant’s are putting their best foot forward with this new single & the coinciding video that features some pretty quintessential Asheville scenery like the outlaw Foundation skate spot built by the reprobates over at Push and their cohorts. So peep the video & grab the free download. The full length album “Powers That Be” is available now on their bandcamp page, link below.
Tired of your shitty job? Don’t believe anything you see on the news? Already sick of the relentless duplicity of election season? Wondering about what the fuck those unpronounceable ingredients on the side of your food label are? Worried that all these concerns and more have lead you to drinking & smoking too much? … Yeah, Dirty Frost is too.
If you can relate feel free to download his new exclusive single “The Power of Confusion”.
