The EP is available for download and streaming on all digital platforms.
“THE SONG “YEA YEAH” WAS ORIGINALLY A FREESTYLE MELODY. I WAS INTENDING TO GATHER THE FLOW BEFORE I CRAFTED MY WORDS BUT AS I WAS FREESTYLING I SAW RODNEY’S REACTION AND THE WORDS WERE SO CLEAR SO WE DECIDED TO KEEP IT AS IS. I NORMALLY “OVER RAP” SO THEY SAY THIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TIMES I LAID BACK ON THE BEAT AND JUST VIBED WITHOUT MY NORMAL PUNCHLINE & 4-5 SYLLABLE RHYME SCHEME. THE ENERGY OF THE SONG IS WHAT MAKES IT AND THE TRANSITION AT THE END SEALED IT FOR ME.” – FRE$H
Fre$h is back with his first single, “Yea Yeah”, off his upcoming album, “Nothing Changed But The Name”, which is set to drop at the end of the year. Stay tuned for the official video dropping Friday September 24th and his follow up single titled “High Hills” Friday October 1st.

“From the Southside of Atlanta to the Northside, 2 n*ggas that made somethin out of nothin, 2 different point of views, 2 real, 2 sides” -Sy Ari Da Kid
Authenticity is scarce in the age of trends going viral every few seconds. Respected by many for living the words that they speak in their lyrics, Sy Ari and Paxquiao deliver the facts on “2 Sides Of A Story”.
In an industry where wordplay is seeming to make its way back to the forefront, the 2 Atlanta emcees take turns smothering groovy instrumentals with double entendres and content that we can relate to. With features from KapG, DaBaby and a verse from the fallen Atlanta legend, Slim Dunkin, the duo delivers a flawless project that should be given an honest listen. [teamflatradio.com]
