Producer Free Mind blesses us with his Freedom of Expression beat tape today. The beats are minimalist and adequately thump, typically with a soul loop to provide some heart.
The LA- based producer describes this project as “very raw and straight to the point. No over-thinking or over-producing. Not too much going on. Just something an emcee could jump on and pour their heart out.”
Free Mind has recently amplified his growing presence in HipHop with an outstanding placement on Westside Gunn’s newest release Hitler Wears Hermès 6 producing the track “My 1st Drako” feat. Nick Grant. Check the track here:
He’s also since then, dropped the ill single “Bandana P” with the ever-prolific Recognize Ali. Check the track here:
And a single with on-the-rise Worcester emcee KillyShoot “Shine A Light.” Check it:
And earlier this year dropped the EP Soul Glow with Supreme Cerebral. Peep it here:
On Freedom Of Expression the standout tracks for this writer are the soul vocal-laced “Story to tell” with its string arrangement; “Nostalgia” with its chopped vocals and guitar and string loops and the purity of the vocal sample from “Walk Away,” which pulls the listener right in to feel the inherent heartache in the vocals.
