HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST/PRODUCER 'FREEMVSON' TALKS ABOUT HIS LATEST SINGLE "SHMOKE" AND MORE!
Freemvson Drops Raw, Emotional Single, “Shmoke”
By: Nadia Sobehart
Self-made artist and producer, Freemvson, brings us his latest exploration of hip hop and R&B with his fresh single, “Shmoke.” Turning to life experiences for musical inspiration, Freemvson brings us a fresh sound that “breaks generational curses” and sets new bars.
The energetic single is a nod to recent circumstances in Freemvson’s life. “What inspired the song is a transition I’m going through in life,” shares the artist. “It came from a place of hate a little bit—hate and loss and retribution. I want people to hear it and feel aggressive—I want to give people energy.”
Raised in Dayton, Ohio, Freemvson grew up in a single-parent home and many of the struggles that came with it. “When I was 10 years old living in Alabama, my older sister helped me write my first rap,” shares the artist. “It was a spontaneous bond thing we did. Since then, I’ve been writing rap, songs, and poetry.”
The rapper’s raw emotion isn’t unfounded. “This is hip hop. I wasn’t fed from a silver spoon—I came from nothing. I came from the struggle. I don’t got to trauma dump or nothing, but people should know I came out of the mud. I formed everything on my own, no handouts or nothing. Everyone gets a little bit of help, but I’m investing in this all my own, out of my pocket.”
Freemvson’s creative process usually involves writing to a beat that inspires him. In the case of “Shmoke,” he worked to a beat by the same name and decided to go with it. “I wrote the song around the title and added my own elements to it. I speak on my own mindset and type of energy.”
Through his music, Freemvson is setting out on a mission to introduce listeners to a new genre of hip hop. “I want to redefine a new genre that people don’t know—trip hop. It’s kind of like psychedelic hip hop with R&B elements infused. It uses spaciness and psychedelic elements, very linear flows.”
In addition to his single, Freemvson has an album, Freemason, which placed #13 on Billboard’s “Heatseeker’s Chart” and #35 on Billboard’s “Hottest New Independent Albums.” Freemvson is also the founder of Luminosity Records LLC, which he founded in late 2020. “I’m an audio engineer and producer—I do everything, not just songwriting. So, I decided to form my own label. Right now, I’m investing in my own music.”
