Album Preview + Video: 500 Free ‘Son of a Hustler’

by @thoughtontracks

This project has been more that two years in the making. To say the process was methodical is a drastic understatement. For Indianapolis artist 500 Free, creating a mix tape took a backseat to creating an experience. Son of a Hustler is an intimate look at his life over the past two years, which has been quite interesting, and no trial or tribulation is left off. Introspection and personal declaration fill this gritty, yet refined, glimpse into his life. The first track, “Free Mason,” is a lyrical barrage that would make any hip hop head take notice. Over the Rick Ross song of the same name, Free makes it very clear that his song writing ability and use of metaphors are rare and arguably unmatched. Tracks like “Survivin’” and “Once Again It’s On” feature the hardships he has endured in vivid detail; while the tracks “Gentleman’s Club” and “No Hands handle” the lighter side of life in two very different styles. Overall, Son of a Hustler is as deliberate as it is organic. The authenticity is undeniable, his style is refreshing and his lyrical devices are enough to satisfy a Vonnegut reader’s pallet. Grab your copy of Son of a Hustler from Naptown Connection or Forward Motion Entertainment when it drops on March 20th. Watch a trailer for the release, here:
