[Album Review] "Under God" By @SincerelySaRese

If you’ve never heard of King Fresh then it's very well upon listening to his first CD Thank God I'm Fresh (released January 2014) that you would've done like I did and skipped to songs that offered a more recognizable feature such as Mean Much and Situation which feature ExecGang’s front runner, rapper and producer SupaNatra. Executive produced by Selah Benjamin of Young World Muzik Ent, T.G.I.F sounds more like someone experimenting with various sounds, accidentally putting them together, then asking someone to rap over tracks. Aside from the aforementioned songs, T.G.I.F made me feel as though Fresh is constantly gasping for air and each time he is about to catch his breath, he is suffocated by substandard production.

Enter Under God.

From the cover alone it’s immediately revealed that this isn’t the same person from ten months ago. Fresh is pictured on the cover wearing sunglasses and a near 100 year-old American flag from the Lincoln Theatre draped around his neck. His arms are outstretched and depending on how you choose to portray it, he could either be perceived to be surrendering, awaiting handcuffs, or he could be gripping imaginary pistols. Either depiction carries a very heavy meaning. The first; are we really “the land of the free” in a country that was never meant to protect us? Will this great nation that I pledge allegiance to hold the same allegiance to me? Or the second; am I left to my own vices with the only option to defend myself the best way I know how? Opting to have the cover shot in black and white takes away the infamous red, white and blue of our great flag and leaves us with one fact; we are all merely children Under God. 

The intro begins with children reciting the national anthem and the first thing that stands out to me is that I can actually hear what they are saying verses feeling as though I was being screamed at like on his previous project. Not only that but the title of the album is tied into the Pledge of Allegiance, which is again repeated on the outro. Usually this is the part where I decide to skim through the songs and stop only when something catches my ear but then How You Feel comes on and it’s as if I’m actually being greeted and welcomed to listen to something I haven’t experienced before so I allow it to play all the way through. Gone are the overbearing sounds of T.G.I.F, which Under God has now replaced with more melodic arrangements and samples (Slow Down samples a song from Mary J. Blige What’s the 411 with the same title) that allow Fresh to ride the beats as effortlessly as surfers ride waves. Executively produced and mixed by Demetrius “SupaNatra” Howard for Chief Execs Entertainment LLC, the songs blend together seamlessly creating one cohesive sound thus supporting the overall theme of the album.

If his lyricism was ever in question, songs like Carmina Flow immediately dead any speculation with crafty entendres such as “Sexing in sections etc./I’m extra terrestrial/excellent aeros over my area/Wright brothers/sounds of hysteria/history barriers/lost souls/history bury us/Jesus just bare with us/I brought a bear with us…

But it isn’t until So Be It that you catch a glimpse at a more personal side of Fresh when he says “…wavey at the highest peak/30 leagues under the sea/my ancestors carried me/to Plymouth Rock apparently/King Fresh legacy/shot me in the leg to see the path God embedded me/royalty’s ahead of me/loyalty will never be/cuz when you try to build em’ up they 9/11 everything/envy crushing every dream.”

Personally, that’s one of my favorite verses on the album and after listening to that I had to think what the comparison between T.G.I.F and Under God reminded me of and it finally hit me. One of my favorite artists is J. Cole and on Rich Niggaz (Born Sinner, June 14th, 2013 released under Roc Nation and Columbia Records) he says “It’s like Sony signed Basquiat/he gave it all he got/now the nigga don’t paint the same, J.Cole.” 

Seems like all Fresh needed was a producer who provided a large enough canvas and allowed him the freedom to create with whatever colors he chose.

Under God was released November 25th, 2014 and is available for purchase on iTunes, Beats Music, Pandora and Spotify Stream.

[Audio] Tha Audio Unit - Mini Boss (Stream)

Adding to his already impressive catalog and resume for 2014, (credits: Jeremih, Smoke DZA, Willie The Kid, Nes Wordz, King Ezz) Columbus, Ohio producer extraordinaire Tha Audio Unit winds down the year by releasing the musically adventurous instrumental project Mini Boss.

Those of us that grew up on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis all have fond memories from those games, and to them A.U. pays tribute by giving them "an extra life"

[Audio] King Fresh - Under God [Standard Version] Album Stream

"You know what the Midwest is? Young and Restless...." Kanye West's iconic song Jesus Walk's asks the rhetoric question. This small but powerful statement strongly personifies the work ethic and drive of the rising Ohio artist King Fresh. A native of Cleveland, Fresh relocated to Columbus to attend The Ohio State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts. Now releasing his highly anticipated first solo effort "Under God" (executive produced by SupaNatra) since officially signing with Chief Execs Entertainment (Exec Gang), he paints a vivid painting of his life and dreams that is cinematic yet surprisingly relatable to the listener. "King Fresh: I believe that where ever you are in life is only because you're supposed to be there. If you're at the top or at the bottom it's all because you made it that way. If you want to be at the top, or you're not happy with where you are currently... Work your ass off to change it. And with this album (Under God) the world will know where I'm headed; and that they can do it too." Despite having the attention of his region, he isn't satisfied and is aware that there is more work to be down: "I believe that it's not only my time, but it's time for Ohio and the Midwest as a whole to shine. And I won't stop until the world recognize us. We too have a voice." ~ King Fresh

The Nike LeBron 11 didn't get a lot of court time via LeBron James, so Nike had to hit the lab hard to come up with some more suitable footwear. Enter: 'The Twelve' which is already creating waves thanks to its unique silhouette, and overall construction. The newest LeBron 12 to surface comes in a classic 'Eggplant' colorway, with a deep purple smothering the upper. The swoosh on the side is reminiscent of the LeBron 9, but the build is unlike any previous models. The kicks aren't nearly as high-top as the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, but are definitely a step above the Nike LeBron 11. If nothing else, the 'Eggplant' Nike LeBron 12 certainly has us intrigued.
