In celebration of the beginning of a new era, longtime Portland collaborators Mic Crenshaw and Gen.Erik have united with Tanzanian Dancehall artist Kiloriti Maasai to release a new Reggae induced Hip-Hop track “Freedom”.
Following tours through Africa and Russia, and collabs with dead prez and others, Mic Crenshaw has become a world-renowned artist, teacher, and activist. Meanwhile, Gen.Erik has taken a behind the scenes role in past years as the booking agent for many of hip-hop’s all-time greats (Rakim, Raekwon, Scarface, Ghostface, DJ Quik, Goodie Mob).
Both Crenshaw and Gen.Erik have been inspired by the hope and unity displayed in recent months, sparking the decision to work together again creatively; and Kiloriti added his signature East African Dancehall flavor.
According to Gen.Erik, who also produced the track, “Just as we were pondering the threats to freedom in our own country, we received an email that we couldn’t receive access to the vocal tracks because Tanzania had blocked their internet until after the election. It really puts things into perspective- Here we are, fighting against misinformation, division, corruption, and tyranny; while others have no freedom to even address these issues publicly.”
Raised in Florida and first getting his start when he was 19 as a promoter at an EDM club, the now California residing rapper/singer CWBY has grown tremendously since his early years in music expanding from promoting to being an artist himself.
“My first experience with music was when I was 19 and working as a promoter in a big EDM club in Tampa and the DJ asked if I wanted to be an MC/ Hype man for him. I fell in love with being on stage and walking around helping hype everyone throughout the night,” CWBY said.
While CWBY’s new single “Trap Star” relates to the world of the trap, the new single also has undertones of love and relationships that make this song something everyone can relate to on a personal level. CWBY first entered the music world as a rapper, but before ever releasing a song, he discovered he had some talent as a singer as well. He quickly changed his style, combining the two forms of vocal delivery to further his musical outreach. Experimenting with various sounds and musical melodies, CWBY’s new musical flavor is rapidly catching speed across the country.
“This first single is kind of a love song mixed with a little bit of my personality as well. If you listen to the intro I am talking about basically every relationship I have been in or tried to enter. I love being with someone and being in love, but I tend to push them away because of my lifestyle that is always moving and busy,” CWBY said.
Venturing into a full blown cannabis business in addition to his music, CWBY lives a fast paced life that doesn’t leave much room for relationships.
“The hook is telling the audience why I can’t be with them. I live a fast paced life when it comes to business and music. I barely have time for myself let alone a relationship. I am completely independent and trying to figure out this industry by myself and also own a successful company and brand. Between the two I am always working and stressed out, but when I have free time I prefer to be alone and working on small, but important things like vocal lessons, piano lessons, fitness and Spanish lessons,” he added.
Produced by “Plantez” who is the same DJ who gave him his first gig as a hype man, CWBY lights up the screen in the O Soloman directed video leaving fans hopeful for more content in the future.
In the up and coming months, he plans to release more tracks, pushing him closer towards his dreams and to becoming the next Billboard charting artist.
“In the near future I want to be performing at the highest level on the biggest stages. The idea of having thousands of people singing along to a song I wrote in my kitchen gives me goosebumps. To share that moment with them would be incredible. I truly believe I can get there too. It’s my goal to inspire people who just want to be masters of their destiny whether that’s being an entrepreneur, an artist, or just to make a better life for yourself and those around you. I’ve been through a lot. Heart breaks, I’ve been screwed over countless times, and just working hard, doing good business, being a man of your word and staying loyal to people, it’ll get you there.”
