About “A Day In The Life”
“When I originally made the beat, it was just a main melody loop of strings and keys with some programmed drums over it. Sonically, I was inspired by Raekwon & Ghostface’s song “Heaven & Hell”, but I wanted to make it an introspective record about a hustler’s come up from the street life to the rap game. And as time passed, I kept going back to the beat and adding more elements. I chopped the melody up more, I played live drums over it, and I wrote a hook that I felt required a female vocalist. So I reached out to the best female vocalist I knew, Macie Stewart, formerly of the popular group Kids These Days. She came to the studio, re-worked the hook, and added some beautiful harmonies throughout. I then sent the beat to AZ, who I knew would set off the track in a classic way. He rapped from the perspective of a hustler that survived the game, did it his way, and is now living the good life. That same approach and theme continued on with Havoc of Mobb Deep and Freeway, both of whom added their own personal narrative to a day in the life of a hustler. Lastly, I orchestrated even more live instrumentation into the track with Graham Burris playing some bass guitar and some live horns at the end by Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal, also formerly of the group Kids These Days. Overall, the song has an epic and triumphant feel to it. I’m very happy with the way it came out. It’s one of my favorite songs on my album and I hope everyone enjoys it.”

Context & Jimmy Flipshyt - “Fire In The Basement” (Music Video)

Being that the ForDaFresh Crew is comprised of straight up Bboys, MCs, DJs, and Graf Artists that rep the essence of Hip Hop to the fullest, we were quite surpsied when we checked our inbox and found that one of the best of this current generation of hip hop to rep that ole boom bap sound, isn’t from The Bronx, not from the East Coast, not even from the U.S.

Coming straight out of Australia; Context & Jimmy Flipshyt have been studying the greats for years and it shows! Don’t let the voice and accent fool you, these dudes are what “Real Hip Hop” is supposed to sound like!

The beat from Jimmy Flipshyt is beyond intoxicating and when he throws in the AZ The Visualiza sample, it all comes together!

#Salute

So do yourself a favor and go a cop/download their recently released second EP titled ‘Fire In The Basement’ and it features BVA (High Focus), P.Smurf, Sinks + more.
