Raz Fresco and P. Blackk from The Baker’s Club chop it up with AHH. Lots going on with these dudes mang. Def looking forward to that new The 6th Letter tape.
(AllHipHop News Feature) Hip-Hop has always been structured by mob rule and in these days, it’s no different. Every aspiring rapper today seems to get an idea, grab their homies, and go all out for a genre they love. Enter the Bakers Club: a collective of talented young Hip-Hop MCs and producers hungry to be the genre’s next trendsetters.
What makes Bakers Club different from most other groups is difference. No two members are alike – all organically growing together through five different cities across two countries.
Group founder, producer, and leader, Raz Fresco, founded The Bakers Club when he was only 15 years old and has proven he’s way older than his age reveals.
Now at 17, Fresco has already produced for some of Hip-Hop’s hottest artists including Mac Miller, French Montana, Tyga, Big Sean, B.o.B., and Wale. But he puts his Club above all.
“A lot of rappers have that signature-type thing they do. I don’t like to box myself into sh*t like that,” Raz says. “My music grows with me.”
Baker’s Club began through mutual friends in Raz’s hometown of Toronto, Ontario. Ever since, The Club has grown to eight members, four from Canada, and four from the U.S. Each member has his or her own unique sound, making it a surprise, as they are able to gel.
“My vision for the Bakers Club was just like it’s not necessarily like ‘this is The Bakers Club’ because every group has their own-type sound,” Raz explains. “Like the Wu-Tang had that Wu sound, Dipset had that Dipset sound. The thing I like about Baker’s Club is, it’s like a whole circle where everyone doesn’t sound the same.”
