Artistic growth is necessary if you ever want to tap into your current state of mind and produce any body of work, when personal growth plays a part then leads you to a different yet familiar path and joins art it's magic. The latest Fresh Daily album 'The Quiet Life' is another artistic and personal growth collection of auditory candy. I already thought that after 'Mothership/L A N D' he reached that level of Hip-Hop where I can relate to and it wasn't just a temporary movement (aka fad), now reading the booklet on his site it hits exactly where my head is at right now. While image (stay fresh) still plays a role in his rhymes, there is maturity present that lets you know there's a higher plane of emcee at play. With soulful beats and lyrics that touch more than the surface of what makes a person tick and live, this album goes a LONG way and never stops to catch it's breath. Quiet Life, Easy, Say Yes, Art Mirrors, and Diamonds are my top favorites but the whole album is just too good, I also caught that classic SMB sound on 'Fresh is G O N E' hehe. With this album I'd say it's another great eye over the shoulder to his life and how he's living mentally. So go ahead and click that download below and see what the good word is about. Peace to Fresh Daily and Giant thoughts, live 'The Quiet Life.'
