Everyone has their own definition of what exactly "being rich" is. To some, it comes in the form of large bank accounts, lavish lifestyles and high priced material items. To others, being rich is nothing more than appreciating your surroundings and enjoying the real life luxuries that we are blessed with everyday. Miami native Phresh James chooses to embrace the latter, and on his brand new single "Chasing Karats" he does this by taking the jewels the world has thrown his way, putting them in the form of words. Spilling his wealth over a beautifully sampled DJ Shapsound production, James calls this his "sore thumb record", due to it having a stand out sound that separates itself from his other records, displaying his versatility as an artist.
This track is all about having fun, and it really makes it easy for you to do so as it carries a top down with the sun shining type of vibe. This is the first official release from his upcoming album The Greater Good and it picks up right where his last project Universal Lve Period leaves off with the title being a derivative of the growth between the two. Features are set to come from his 305 family J NICS, Prez P, Steven A. Clark and Vurn, with more contributions from a few surprise guests. Production will be handled exclusively by Mr. Maneuvers, with the exception of this one, which he says sets the tone for #TGG to have one cohesive sound. While no definitive release date is set, Phresh says the project is 90% done and will see a first quarter release in 2014. Excuse our pun, but this is simply refreshing.
