Tuesday, August 5th, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA -- Brooklyn rapper Drew Godson has released the first of his upcoming promotional singles; "A Free'd Style (The Son's Revenge)" is Drew's latest effort in which he displays a non-traditional approach by creating a song structured without a hook or chorus. The new single is available on Soundcloud.
Produced by his Brooklyn counterpart, upcoming film director/music producer Pat Streater, the track gives a clear message about the emerging lyricist's past and present lifestyle. Through Drew's label, RAP.WELL RECORDS, the two are working on his forthcoming EP which will include a combination of Streater's classic hip hop production fused with Drew's East Flatbush-styled rap.
"The duality of a hip hop prospect, the battle between good & evil, the story of hip hop's love child," says Drew. "The tale of God's rebellious son."
Inspired by Nas, Rakim and Jay-Z, Drew aims to deliver thought-provoking content through his refurbished backpack rapping style. The new single, "A Free'd Style (The Son's Revenge)" makes a strong statement of his arrival in the rap game. He is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on the new EP.
About Drew Godson
With an older brother, father, and sister being musicians in the family, music is absolutely in the bloodline for Drew, who was really moved to pursue music after seeing Kanye West. Right then and there he knew that Kanye would change the game, without a million gold chains and an earnest hard hitting sound. The one album that really moved Drew forever and took him to the oasis that he feels is hip hop in all its glorification, was Kanye's "College Dropout"; as he claims it was the 'embodiment of the culture on a silver round disk'. Nas's "Illmatic", Jay Z's "Reasonable Doubt", and Rakim's "18th Letter" were also very influential to Drew, and he considers them all classics. Influences are instrumental in shaping sound and future performances, a true valuable part of the intricate development of an artist.
