Raz Fresco‘s last album, Pablo Frescobar may have just reached its two-year milestone, but the 17-track project, which featured everyone from Raekwon to Chuck Inglish and Bishop Nehru — and produced the video “Come and See Ya” — still sounds fresh, and more importantly, relevant than ever.
Earlier this year, the Toronto “God Body” announced he’s been working on the follow-up called HUSTLE, short for How U Survive Through Life Everyday.
Noisey recently sat down with the wunderkind to talk about his latest video, “Honey Brown/Money Brown,” and its meaning.
Watch the video, directed by RodZIlla and produced by Mike Haze up top and read a few choice quotes below.
What’s the message of this song?
“Cash rules everything at the end of the day, so since getting money is something we all gotta do, this song is some “get money” music. And like I said on the second verse regardless of how one may feel about it, there are people dying just to eat a meal every day so this is just some motivational music to get that paper, even if you take a loss, this will motivate u to go and make it back.”
Where do you think you fit into or next to the Toronto scene?
“I’m not really trying to “fit in.” I want to just carve out my own place. I think I’ve been doing that thus far. There isn’t anyone you can say is exactly like me and I’d like to just keep it that way.”
