Read Fresh Daily's Bio:
Good music, dope flows, fresh tees and kicks define the personal style of Brooklyn native Fresh Daily, a rising lyricist who is taking an impressive multifaceted approach to Hip Hop. As an emcee, graphic designer, this artist's persona and prowess make it hard to disagree with his self-proclaimed title of himself as "the New Jack of Brooklyn boom bap". Fresh got his start under the alias Ill Tarzan, a name he was forced to drop due to legal issues with the family of the Tarzan author, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Instead of allowing to be a roadblock, Fresh Daily decided his time was better spent on music and that change is sometimes necessary. This is also a sign of his growing popularity. He changed his name to Fresh Daily due to his collection of Nike sneakers, distinct taste in NYC fashion, and affinity for highly stylized, braggadocios lyrics. "It pained me to lose 7 years of garnishing a fan base as ill Tarzan but maybe it was time for a change anyway. Plus, Fresh Daily just fits me right, I stay Fresh All day, every day, with the rhymes, with the style".Under the former name, the lyricist gained notoriety on the NY underground circuit with the release of his first two projects, "Life Music", his debut album, and premier mixtape "Treats". Presently, Fresh Daily is linked up with formidable indie record and graphic design label, Unlimited Vinyl Ink, who has helped with the recent release of a second mixtape, "Mad Flavas" (2006), High Water Music will be releasing Fresh Daily's sophomore album, "Fresh Daily is the Gorgeous Killer in Crimes of Passion" ('08) featuring production by Illmind (G-Unit, Little Brother, Ghostface), Oh No (Stones Throw), 88 Keys (Kanye West, Grafh, Mos Def), Dj Spinna (Eminem, Slick Rick) Frequency (Snoop Dogg, Cam'ron), Analogic, 2 Hungry Bros and several noted emcee guest appearances from Cool Calm Pete (Embedded/Def Jux), Tanya Morgan (Loud Minority/ABB) Homeboy Sandman and more. Regardless of what you stumble upon regarding this emcee, whether it be modeling for several streetwear brands (Live Mechanics, Leroy Jenkins, Methods NYC, IHMDJ, Brooklyn Surfer) or having his paintings in galleries, expect slick wordplay and real versatility when delivering over a variety of production. His overall style and flare will definitely keep you coming back for more. Fresh Daily has performed along side some of Hip-Hop music's highly regarded artists like Jean Grae, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Smif-N-Wessun, Dj Evil Dee and others. He has released numerous self-financed projects over the course of seven years as a musician, which collectively moved over 10,000 units. He has also performed in various venues in the U.S, to support those efforts. With High Water Music (Dj Sucio Smash and Dj Spinna) backing him, he hopes to move his exposure to the next level. Fresh recently released a music video he shot, edited, and starred for the Illmind produced song ,"Get Over", which picked up over 5,000 hits on YOUTUBE within 3 days. Future aspirations for Fresh Daily include film scores, a T-shirt line and soundtracks, as well as, acting, modeling, more graphic illustration, and he has plans to design his own sneaker line.
