Azad Right - Showtime

Posted 3 years ago
Jonathan Marquez
For The Hopeful

For the past several years, Azad Right has been setting the stage for his eventual conquest of the hip-hop game. Now, it’s Showtime. On this new single, released along with official visuals by Stephen Vitale, a soulful Jonathan Marquez instrumental backs the Los Angeles emcee as he emphasizes his passion for the music, his drive to succeed and his commitment to keeping it one-hundred. He also offers a reality check to any purist who’d question his desire for financial security: “F*ck all these cliché new rappers tryin’ to act like / they’re too good to dumb it down / if you really had a chance to blow, with the money, cars and hos / you would never wanna stay underground.” Feeling it? Then keep your browsers locked for the more fresh tunes leading up to the arrival of For The Hopeful later this spring.
