Peter and Andrew started this site 5 years ago in college because of their combined love of music, art, and internet. The only goal that ever existed for...

March 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

We’ve been huge fans of Walt Fraze for a few years now, so it’s always exciting for us to see him still working between a few self-imposed hiatuses, still putting out new music, and still keeping his home state of Delaware relevant in today’s landscape on rap in the online world. I still play his...

Connecticut’s best kept secret is back at it, dropping off this Direct Message-produced record recently. From the sounds of it, Lonny has a new project on the way and “Damier” serves as the first sampling of what’s to come. The Lazyboy Records artist gets better with every release, so I’m looking forward to what he...

Jay Saif – Reminder

March 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Man, this guy Jay Saif may not drop music as often as some music consumers would like, but when he does? Damn. His first track of the year is the appropriately titled “Reminder”, a joint that makes me remember exactly why SFDotNet originally started riding with Saif back when we were first getting off the ground....

I’m still bumping Add-2’s Prey For The Poor religiously but it’s always nice to hear a new verse from the Jamla artist. As such, Neak made a wise decision enlisting Add-2 for his “Do Dat That (Ethio-Jazz)”, an unreleased joint that will be featured on Neak’s upcoming deluxe version of Paura/Amore. If a track features Add-2 in any...

To the best of my knowledge, Matt Champion was introduced to the public right around the time Kevin Abstract released MTV1987. Since then, Champion has only released a handful of solo records but each and every one of them has helped to establish him as a seriously talented and innovative artist. Last year’s Jon Waltz-assisted “Burn”...

Blame it on the blogger because I’ve been sitting on these tracks, in a drafted post, for about two weeks now. The good homie out of the Phi has been pretty low key for the better part of a year, so I was very happy to see some new work from him in my inbox...

Always a treat when Jake Crocker sends over something new. His latest release, a remix of EZA’s “We Keep The Lights Out”, showcases exactly why the young artist is such a valuable member of the Black Umbrella family. While we’re more accustomed to Crocker’s hip-hop oriented production thanks to his work with Raz Simone and...

Do what you gotta do to get by, but don’t lose sight of the things that really make you happy. That seems to be the underlying theme of Sol’s “Happiness” visuals. Most of us have to put in work at our day jobs in order to bring life to our passions – that’s just the way...

If you’ve been enjoying the abundant releases from Raz Simone over the last couple years, then you’re familiar with Warm Gun. “Been Known” is the first time Warm Gun will be gracing the pages of Straight Fresh with a solo effort and it’s got me hoping he hits us with more new content soon. The...

iLL Chris links with Mogli for the flex-heavy “Pull Up” visuals. Over BlackKeyCartel’s aggressive production, the two artists deliver some braggadocio, which only seems appropriate with the accompanying visuals showcasing excessive drinks, bling and all things stunt-worthy. “Pull Up” will live on Chris’s upcoming Honor Thy Father project, due out later this month. Turn your volume up...
