FREE MUSIC : FRESH DAILY 'Mothership / Land" + website launch party Dec 1st

FRESH DAILY has hit me up with some leaks months before the release of his new full-length project MOTHERSHIP/LAND, so I was really looking forward to hear the whole album. MOTHERSHIP takes Fresh's skills as a lyricist/MC to new heights as he rhymes over beats by Benamin, Calvin The Genius, Devonwho, Flying Lotus, Melo-X, Mndsng, Samiyam, Flyamsam and J Dilla, among others. This is a hip-hop project that's true to the movement's East coast roots, the golden days of NY block-parties & the spirit of 'love & having fun in the community' type-vibes NY hip-hop was born out of. Personal & cosmic, Fresh's new album is a journey through visions of the past to awakening, self-love and self-knowledge on several different levels.

ABOUT the project from Fresh himself: This is an amalgam of many things. Us as a people, black people, the Diaspora, how we relate to each other in relationships & socially. All in all we’ve been built and programmed to have shoddy social/love relationships as a result of slavery and years of conditioning to break down our culture and heritage. They’ve failed. We’re WOKE with knowledge of self. We’re Young, Gifted and Black. Also just a personal dissertation & exploration on my relationships w/ lovers, friends & family. Also a celebration of women & the life cycle of sorts. We as men come out of a woman (our Mother) enter a woman again (our wives/lovers) and return to mother EARTH in death. Plus it’s just a spaced-out, low-end mixtape composed of dope jams. The mothership is here to expand how you think and take you somewhere else via audio rhythms.

Check out the launch of the Fresh Daily X Sacred Stitch Collaborative T-shirt & 5-Panel Cap. Free Giveaways!
In Fresh's own words, It’s been a long time coming, both this website and this t-shirt and 5 panel-collabo. This is sort of like my design debut! I invited all of you personally to come on out and celebrate!
It’s FREE! it’s early (for you workin’ folks!)

Come and Party!
Music by Sucio Smash!
Afterparty at bOb’s.
