Fresh Daily has been a staple of NYC’s underground hip-hop scene for at least half a decade. Since last year’s The Quiet Life, Fresh has become one of the more talented yet lesser known underground big apple MCs.
His latest project, The Brooklyn Good Guy, might ameliorate that a bit. He stays intent on rapping well over interesting production. And on this go ’round, the dexterous MC enlists an interesting list of collaborators, from Om’mas Keith of Sa-Ra to St. Louis’ Black Spade and L.A. indie juggernaut MURS, whose collaborative effort we’re streaming today. Fresh spit about Brooklyn’s Mandrill-like funk and MURS explain that dead polar bears make him cry. Produced by Shigeto, the beat finds a middle ground between boom-bap and the electro-driven sound the Michigan wonderkid is best known for.
