The Manchester Christian rapper that everyone is talking about right now ‘Crown Freedom’ released his new mixtape AA on 31 March as a free stream or download and its banging!
One-half of manchester based Hip Hop duo, Crown Freedom album has already been described as ‘electrifying concoction of hard-hitting, brutally honest but positive music’. And that pretty much sums this artist up as well as having one of the best lyrical flows we’ve heard in a while.
Crown Freedom is confident this is his most significant release to date. After a miraculous recovery from a serious operation on his vocal cords that nearly saw his career cut short, Crown has returned with a passion for seeing lives changed through his music. He says:
‘This album is free because I want every single vulnerable young person to have access to a transforming message of hope and love. That’s something you can’t put a price on.’
The entire album sees Crown draw from personal experiences and that of friends, and explores uncomfortable issues and topics others often shy away from. Track 10 – ‘Sun Comes Out’ – is based on a true story of a young girl from Manchester, who endured unimaginable experiences through sexual exploitation but has since been able to rebuild her life.
“AA” is definitely a missional album. Through his work at The Message Trust, Crown works intensely with young offenders, looked after children and high-risk victims of grooming and child sexual exploitation. He believes his new material is not only therapeutic but also thought-provoking and will help to repair the hurt and damaged people who are often labelled as ‘write-offs.’ He says this about the album:
‘It’s bigger than music, it’s bigger than me.’
No doubt this is one of those projects that you are ging to have to take time over to take in the stories and messages, yet there are some tracks that you’re just going to jam to instantly!
