Hey folks. It’s your motherfucking boy Allen Poe here. My daughter woke me at 2:30 a.m. out of the best sleep I’ve had in a week to say she didn’t feel good. I gave her some meds and sent her lil ass back to sleep. Guess who tried to go to back to sleep but began thinking of rap lyrics instead. Correct. So here I am at 3:41 a.m. listening to “Summer Seagrams.” Yea it’s Fredd C‘s track from his newly released debut Nov’ 92 and nah, Fredd isn’t from Louisville (he’s from Lexington), however this particular track has one of the Ville’s finest (Eons D) on it, so it’s kosher right? Of course it is fucko.
Enough with the snark. This track is fucking amazing and I can tell you with certainty that if I had to make an all Kentucky mixtape at the end of the year, this would be a song already firmly cemented on it, and it’s currently February. It helps that a Knxwledge beat is the canvas for this one, but regardless of the beat the emcees make this song. FreDD’s verse here is youthful and forward looking with mentions of hustling, talking to his mom about preaching but opting for rapping instead and being hungry in a rugged environment. Eons D is a little more measured and reflective as far as perspective goes, touching on his team rising and lessons learned from religious experiences (or lack thereof?) that translate into the music hustle. This is an outstanding project overall and in my humblest opinion, this is the stand out track on it.
