Formerly known as Short Dawg, Fre$h is here to put on for his new genre of Bar&B. Bringing together bars and punchlines and pairing it with R&B and hard-hitting production, the Houston native continues on with his solo career after his stint with Young Money. Most recently, he unleashed his project titled frēsh•ism, which hails standout singles “Petty” featuring 2 Chainz & 50 Cent, “Paul Masson” featuring Wiz Khalifa, and “Stop Playing” featuring Chris Brown.
Stopping by Power 106 for our exclusive Now You Know series, Fre$h speaks on his new project:
“This particular project, I want people to see the growth. Musically, the incline. I still keep the bars, but now I also add this element of singing, where my style is now in its own genre of Bar&B. That’s where I’m using the 4-part harmonies and different melodies, also still bringing the lyrics along. Because most people sometimes, they separate the two. Some people sing, some people rap. Even artists who can do both, they still separate the two. I’m trying to infuse them.”
Watch above as he discusses how “Petty” came about with 2 Chainz & 50 Cent, as well as wild studio sessions with Wiz Khalifa leading to the creation of “Paul Masson.”
