NameBrand - Fly Away

  • Artist: NameBrand
  • Track: Fly Away
  • Producer: Seige Monstracity
  • Album: DJBooth Freestyle Series (#41)

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars like Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. Now, it's back for a second round.

The 41st entry in the relaunched series comes courtesy of NameBrand, the Long Beach emcee who recently won reader acclaim for Struggles. On Fly Away, the Epic Records signee flexes his lyrical muscles over original production by Seige Monstracity. Fred Lozano provides original artwork to accompany the freestyle.

NameBrand has yet to reveal details on his 2015 plans, but fans can hear more from him on Great Tape II, released last fall and available, sans tags, for free streaming and download in the Booth.
