FreeDom ft. Maria: Love The Way

FreeDom Hoodie Style Look 4

Following up on the series of previous singles with “Love The Way” we get to hear a lifted, more ‘Surface to Air’ combination of lyrical excellence that is rare in the current existence of ‘Rap’. Here, both Freedom (Dom) and Maria bring together melody, rap and a trail-blazing inverted chorus; much is the fact that all three come together in a fluid, continuous and just right way that similarly contributes to previous works – but with a difference.

From the outset we get the chorus integrating with a very likeable kicking bassline, while on course to introduce the initial lyrics, Freedom attacks the mic with precision and flawless connection to the build. Together what we hear is a purposely placed misdirection, or mash-up, if you like, that has you believe that this is the work of a more relaxed and approachable collaboration between the two people: Maria giving an incredible input to the track, while Dom’s joint performance fuses together with finely adapted precision. In fact, by the first line of lyrics alone, you find that the song has been selectively written with one topic – one meaning – in mind: Emotions of a heightened degree in which separate that of two amicable’s (Not Freedom and Maria) to the point where they dissolve into a void of tough love and mistrust. And, it is with this track that both musicians have pulled it off perfectly.

From the lyrics side of the track, we become witness to Freedom’s’ deepened and intricate flow and consistent stabilizing of keeping his level of information steady, but at the same time understandable to the point where upon carrying out the last line of verse the message is heard and very much understood to be that of a personally embraced experience. As we have already seen from “Pain, Anger, Suppression”, “Haters” and “Jack The Lad”, it is the collaboration with Maria which has, especially for ‘The Dark Tower’ enabled this obvious conclusion that Freedom has acquired his very own unique style in all of his works and projects throughout his four year presence.

For Freedom himself the emotional aspects of personal, political and overall Interstate conflict has given rise to place his thoughts and reasoning into lyrics which raise an eye-brow, trigger frowns and, in some cases create a negative cloud covering by those who feel that the songs this 26-year-old sings affect them in so many ways by measurable relation, self-experience and, of course, by the most obvious reason – provocation by a breaking Status Quo. But certainly, the direction that Freedom is taking with his musical offerings has been both highlighted and applauded in so many ways, that it is clear enough that 2015 can be a time for this new, fresh Rapper to be welcomed as a ‘Best New Comer’ to the music scene.
