Hello, my name is Abe the Freak. I’m a Mexican rapper born in Guadalajara, Jalisco; raised in Baldwin Park Ca. Some of my major influences would include MF Doom, Earl Sweatshirt & Mac Miller. Aside, from working on my own projects, I also make up 1/3 of the upcoming hip-hop group known as D.T.O. (Despite the Odds). My latest and (actually) biggest performance so far has been at the 626 Night Market here in the city of Arcadia where I had the opportunity to share the stage with with my team members “Don Jesse” and “MC Rulez”. We performed as DTO and also had the chance to share the stage with some dope upcoming artist like “Regi Levi” and “Larry Love Laflair”. Besides all those backyard gigs I’ve done, this has been my first of many stage performances to come!
I am currently working on my next 2 EPs “Life is a Doozy” & “Not of Earth”. Both set to release later this year featuring music from some crazy ill producers/rappers such “TeO da River”, “Doozy Collective”, “KyD” & “Don Jesse”. My earlier projects are all available on ITunes, Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud. Each EP was created to tel my story. With each project you listen too, you’ll learn a little something new about me as you dig deeper and deeper into the mind of The Freak. With these projects I’ve been able to purchase beats from bigger name producers like “Grizzly Beatz”, “Epik the Dawn” & “LethalNeedle”. For the rest of the year I’ll be focusing on performing as much as possible. Last year was pretty rough on everyone, so I’m excited to hit the stage and play some good music for some beautiful people! So, look me up; tune in, folk. I look forward to blowing y’all minds!!

A Bobby Barz continues to spread light to the dark areas of the world with his powerful words, and wisdom. Molded by poverty and struggle it was inevitable that he became the humble, honest, dedicated and highly spirited being that he is today. He entered the world February 27, 1991, with a mission to accomplish. As a child the passion for music flowed through his veins. With his parents being absent most of his life he was forced to learn life lessons early on. The lessons he learned, and the pain endured along his journey became the driving force behind his music. Battling anxiety and depression the studio soon became his personal therapy sessions. Bobby Barz has recorded numerous songs over the years, but due to self-criticism and an urge to achieve perfection most of the music was never released. After a period of silent growth he is now prepared to showcase his talent and become the guidance he always yearned for. Each bar is filled with wordplay, passion and a piece of his story. He believes each person is called by God for a unique purpose to fulfill. With that being said check out his first official EP titled “The Call” that is now available on all platforms for streaming and download.

Ryan D. Neely presents hip hop music fans with an intellectually refreshing short album via his release of Rapper Turned Producer. Known in Louisville, Kentucky circles for his inspirational lyrics in the early 2000s, Neely decided to get back to being creative. After years of writing songs and simply running from the idea of another mainstream release, it was time to humbly give it a shot.
To help himself, his family, and friends cope through the realities and experiences of 2020, Neely embarked on a journey of storytelling reminding listeners of life as it was. As many Americans dealt with unemployment, mental health issues, physical health issues, race matters, political unease, and the loss of loved ones, he hoped to provide spring of hope. Therefore, though the album only had eight songs, each track had its purpose. On that note, we had the pleasure of interviewing him to learn about each selection.
Neely originally recorded "Servant" in 2007 with the help of Jay Azubuike; the younger brother of former NBA player Kelenna Azubuike. It was the first time he ever recorded a rap song on a beat that he purchased from another producer because it was too good to pass up. After recognizing that he could still reach hip hop spectators without using profanity, he started being honest with his thoughts. In this song, he shared his view points on what it truly means to help others by putting them before one's self. He explained how the fruits of success from helping people without ever craving earthly things. Currently, "Servant" is one of his most viewed videos on YouTube.
Out for a Snack
Next, Neely took listeners on a random thought process of what truly happens when we are hungry in "Out for a Snack." As a 1980s rap music fan, he used his old school style of lyricism to grab the attention of the hearers by bringing his feelings to life. The track itself sounds like a children's bedtime story, but is very catchy with its storyline and piano laced beat that does not include any drums.
"Pasha Aksoy" was written for a friend of the exact name who withheld ambitions to be a pro snowboarder. Neely had Aksoy answer a series of questions explaining all of his favorite things, as he turned the replies into a rap song. As of today, it is the only theme song he has created for a specific person.
As a veteran of the United States Army Reserves, Neely gave listeners insight into a Private or Cadet's first day of basic training or basic camp prior to the first 100 yards on "4thRegiment." Most US military veterans can relate to the first day of basic training where they were grilled by there drill instructors as they were made to conform and follow orders. Neely once again expressed his feelings by bringing the story to life with settings, thoughts, memories, and a Soldier's will to stay in the game.
Play My Song
Neely gave car riders a true story of what it is like when their favorite song comes on the radio with "Play My Song." We all can relate to pulling up to work and considering spearing an extra 20 seconds before we go through the doors to let a good song finish playing. Neely brings some humor to the composition as he speaks of how people get caught dancing in their car in an undignified manner when their favorite part of the song streams.
"Noodles" is Neely's second favorite choice after "Servant" in regards to the Rapper Turned Producer album. This track was created strictly with Ramen noodle enthusiasts in mind. Neely even dives into how he seasons his Ramen noodles and how the thought of a good tasting bowl of ramen noodles simply leads to the want for another serving.
Three Little Pigs
Believe it or not, Neely did not change any parts of the fairy tail when it comes to "Three Little Pigs." As a child, this was one of Neely's all-time favorite stories to hear and watch on VHS. Therefore, he paid the story homage lyrically by telling this story from top to bottom mentioning the three resources used to build their houses, and how the wolf ultimately gave up.
Stepped Out On Faith
Finally, Neely closed out the album with an encouraging song on "Stepped Out On Faith." Throughout the flow, he continually explained how the things he either is doing or has done are all leading up to something and the importance of never giving up. He pushes listeners to simply believe in order to achieve.
If you are looking for a mental break and a lyrical motion picture, pleased consider listening to Rapper Turned Producer. Also, feel free to check out Neely's other releases as you may find something interesting.

"Double-Edged Sword" is the latest EP from the rap artist and songwriter BIG P. The concept of the music is around peace of Mind and spirituality. From the cover art to the music, this project have a huge Lo-fi boombap flair to it. The duality of the project reflect how life can juxtapose the good and ugly.

This project was heavily inspired by Griselda, The Alchemist, MF DOOM, Eminem, Earl Sweartshirt, Kendrick Lamar and Madlib. If you like some of these artists you should definitely give it a spin.
