Hear We Go
I know I've been away for a while. It seems like I can't even get on the internet as of late, but it won't be like that too much longer. Just before I get into it, I want to give a shout out to my boy Aaron over at MESH Life (http://www.themeshlife.com). I was working with him over at VIBE and he did a nice little tribute to all the interns that were there. So, I also want to say to all my fellow interns that it was truly a pleasure and as I said in my tribute to VIBE, I know we're all going to be doing big things, so we gotta stay in touch and hold on to that time we had together. Check out the website when you get a chance. They cover EVERYTHING on there and were finalists in the Black Weblog Awards.
Now, let's get into it. I wanted to let ya'll know that you guys need to go out and support Fuze the MC and download his FREE album. That's right, it is completely free and it's not a mixtape or EP but a full fledged album. What more could you ask for? Good quality, well put together music, for the price of $0.00. I've mentioned Fuze a few other times on the blog and it's for a good reason. He really is making major moves and his popularity has really soared in just the last few months.
In a time where it is difficult to come across a decent single on the radio (although that is slowly, but surely changing), it is near impossible to find a quality album for free like this. There is nice production, samples (ya'll know I love them, especially the Harold Melvin one on "Wake Up"), and lyrical content on this album. And for those that criticize the South for putting emphases on dances and beats and not lyricism, well Fuze definitely goes against that. Coming out of Atlanta, you wouldn't be able to tell from the music. There are different, yet very refreshing sounds on the album and Fuze doesn't at all play into what is popular or is considered the norm. I think the artist that Fuze's style reminds me most of and is most comparable to is Lupe Fiasco, not anybody from the South.
These are the kind of acts we need to support if we want to get real music back to the forefront. We are finally starting to make a turn, but we need to continue to make a push and back those that are really representing us in the right way. In order for you to get this album, it costs you nothing but a click of a button and a few minutes to download. There are 18 tracks worth of quality music. It doesn't get too much better than that. You can download the album http://www.downloadfuze.com.
If you have any comments about the album, leave them here and as always you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Maybe I can get a interview with Fuze sometime...I guess we'll just have to wait and see. And before I finish up, while we're talking about supporting stuff, everybody support the Hip Hop Hope Dealer website. Just click on the link on the left and check it out. Everyday there's a new lyric that promotes positivity and serves as motivation. Let's make it so that this is the kind of stuff that we are seeing in hip hop more often that not. That's it for me. I have some more good posts coming soon. I promise!
