Random but important: did you know this guy’s the son of the legendary ‘Deadly’ Hedley Jones (CBC, CFNY, Q107), and grandson of Hedley Jones Sr. (a huge JA pioneer in his own right)… had no idea.. #salute.
Raz Fresco’s highly anticipated CakeyPocket$ project is now available for download. The tape has been in the making for almost a year and shows conssiderable growth from Raz. It is entirely self produced and features only ΒΛΚΞΓ$CLUΒ artist with the exception of Jimmy Johnson on Villainry who is apart of PRIME. Videos for 2 songs are shot already and another shoot is scheduled for Sunday. This tape just shows that the movement that is the ΒΛΚΞΓ$CLUΒ has no intentions of slowing down. The download for the tape is available below as well as a link to the video for CAKEY the first release off the tape.
This is a song that came into fruition from hearing a track at Dex Brown’s studio while working on a song he asked me to be apart of, the track literally spoke to me and made me ask him to play it. After hearing the beat I asked for the track and thankfully he obliged. Now to know me is to know how much art has been an integral part of my life. It has been a constant from my earliest thoughts. So to be able to record my song and create my video for self is a big accomplishment, The track was recorded and produced by Michael Dex Brown, then sent to the Amazing Ron Allen who mixed and mastered the tune bringing out the sonics and helping to craft a truly unique sound. I ain’t trying to follow no formats of what is hitting at this present moment in music, I’m relying on what I feel is artistic and can stand the test of time. A lot of this video was shot by myself, but also with the help of my 12 year old son who would push the button, and play the track as I got into place, Big up Queen Cee who also helped out, and Milton Lowe who added on to the video in many ways as well! Namine has been my go to model for years and came through once again, and Much Love to Natalie Marie Royal who did the make up for the shoot. I edited the video as well and although it’s a jump forward in my skill set, I am still learning and wish what I envision could be my final output but it is becoming a more refined process. Big Up to all my peoples who made a cameo in the video and to all my friends, family, and fans who support my Art! Love ya’ll! And to my Crown A’ Thornz brothers you have helped me develop my presentation and delivery in leaps and bounds!
