Jeff Spec is back with "Freeze", a ten track offering from indie label Wandering Worx Music. He teams up with music producer REL!G!ON for their first collaboration and together they create a raw, head nodding experience. The album has a soulful sound but there's an edge to it. Spec brings it back to rhyming while REL!G!ON brings it back to his old Ensoniq EPS 16 sampler and analog synths.
What’s So Special about the Song & the Artist: The song Free Ride is actually more of an interlude from the rest of the music. The beat is one of a kind and is very easy to vibe with and the lyrics go very well over it. With a good feel to the track and the video, Free Ride is something easy to listen to. Its long enough to leave time for good word play but short enough to make the people want more. Which entices people to stream and listen to the mixtape. A.M.J writes all his own lyrics, records and mixes/masters all of his music. Almost 2 years rapping now he has opened up for national artists Joe Budden and Chris Webby and has done numerous shows around his hometown. He will be opening for Radical Something at The Middle East Club Cambridge Ma, on November 4th, and is awaiting reply to see if he can also open for them Nov. 2nd at The Studio at Webster Hall NYC. With the right push this kid could really go somewhere, hes motivated and dedicated to making it in the industry and has the talent to do so.
