Marti - Grey Matter (Freestyle) [Prod by Jeffrey Rashad]

If you ever have been to a Bombay Knox event before this year then you know Mi$Fit Marti. Over the past few year Marti has been growing as an artist, whether she is designing, organizing, modeling or now music, Marti has been making major strides. When she first sent me this track I had a brief idea of what to expect based off of unreleased tracks she has played for me, but this far exceeded my expectations. She has a beautiful voice reminiscent of classically trained singers from the 50s/early 60s. Were excited to see what she releases next, check out the freestyle and her explanation for the track below. -  JR

'Grey Matter was made in the wake of the Freddy Gray uprising and numerous other acts of violence plaguing this world. You will hear me cry, mumble and at times wrongly hit notes. I wouldn't have it any other way. As an artist it is important to show our imperfections. Art lives; Life is imperfect, ever-changing.

So I present to you the ever growing entity; myself.'

Why Fi- "The Most Whyreless" EP

Whyreless: the concept of living one’s life free of restrictions and limitations in order to achieve self actualization and ultimate happiness. One can become “whyreless” by simply cutting ties with conformity, complacency and minimalistic desires in the attempt to want, need, and do better (for oneself as well as for others).
— Why Fi is simply "The Most Whyreless"

Not A Collective member, Why-Fi bid the DMV area good bye and traded his surroundings for the rays of California sunshine. But before he left us hanging here on the East Coast, he decided to reintroduce us with a brand-new sound and approach to creating as he embarks on a new direction with his music. A statement project that brings to our attention his ideals on stepping away from dark depths of willingness to conform to societal restrictions. The Most Whyreless gives you lush immersive soundscapes glazing over your ear drums with in-house producers High Klassified, Mae, Kazmi, Bluseph. Garmenian, High Class Filth & MKSB at the helm churning in the background; featuring N.A.C members Bluesph and Nigel Frank, and NeroScream. Why Fi definitely has a strong capability orchestrating an highly enjoyable project.

DNNE$$- Ashes 2 Ashes

DNNE$$ is a 22 year old rapper based out of Carson, CA has been making the rounds on Soundcloud; his latest releases averaging about 25k plus listens. His interest in making music started when he was 17 and grown take his craft much more seriously at the age of 19, honing in on his distinct melancholy- yet experimental production styles that fit his lyrical agility. Discussing super relatable topics such as hustling for your money by any means necessary and being humble enough to recognize that we don't always have it and of course drugs. I definitely look forward to his upcoming BRING OUT THE LIQUOR EP, he has also been confirmed to lend his talents to one of our projects.
