Solo career, SLIT-THROAT Music and The FR33DOM
4GB Acronym for[4times a Greater Being] has earned this. When you litter two decades of hip-hop with landmark verses, when your talent/POETRY is so known and you can hold it down in any area code, when you’ve been in the game and still sound as fresh to death as he does, when you’ve rocked the stage and still held your own, then…and only then…can you name your album ”THE FR33DOM”.
With wisdom in his lyrics and feeling in his voice, 4GB has spent the last years entrenching himself in the upper echelons of the rap game.–his rhymes have never sounded so potent; his voice never so evocative. “People are always trying to redefine themselves, re-invent themselves,” says 4GB. “But I’m not selling you a lifestyle; I’m not selling you rims; I’m giving you my art and I’m trying to entertain you.
And there’s value in that.” THE FR33DOM with it’s eclectic collection of guests, producers and sounds transcends sub-genres and geography. Leave the pigeon-holes for the birds, this is simply a filler-free rap album from one of the finest pound-for-pound MC’s in the game. “Sure, things are different out there; music sounds differently, its made differently and it gets listened to and talked about differently. But it’s still music. And you still have to come with heat.”
