expression is free
'Expression is Free' is a free mixtape, mixing original and cover songs to hip hop instrumentals.
God Bless the Child
Originally sung and written by Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog Jr, this rendition has been mixed with All I Do an instrumental produced by J Dilla. Being a fan of both of their work, I put the two together after a conversation with my mother, who often played God Bless the child on vinyl, it being one of her favourite songs.
Kendrick Lamar is great lyricist and Sing about me has a lot of meaning and tells a story of a lifestyle that relates to many. I listened to the track and i just wrote whatever came to me after hearing. I wrote Living for a loved one , who had been away from himself and i want him to get back to him. I hope to share this song with him.
For the Love
For the love of you originally by the Isley Brothers, is one of my favourite songs, I mixed with Post Malone's, White Iverson - another dope song.
See Her Entirely
Another Dilla track, See Her Entirely is for women, all women, to be seen for who they are and that is every woman possible- it is all in her, see her entirely.
