    Never Ignoring the Original Truth

    Nowadays, you won’t find too many people that’ll pick up a book and read. Most people wanna watch a quick video, write a two-line comment online. Everyone is on a fast track to a good time doing what other people think is cool. However, when it comes to this publication, my current book, an album release, my main singles are: ‘Jos Cam’ – feat. Meena, International, ‘Dark Horse From Romarong’ – feat. Eddie Bullen (the title track), ‘Athens Of West Africa,’ ‘Promise,’ ‘Angel,’ ‘Intellectual Thug’ and ‘Save’ – feat. Carvin Winans. All these songs are not your typical songs. I have dance songs on there, but for the most part of this record, I tried to commemorate the end of a strenuous era in my life by recollecting on what it took to get through that.

    That’s why I called it ‘Dark Horse From Romarong.’ The book, ‘The Dark Road From Romarong’ speaks about Romarong, a sad place. To be a dark horse that came through a dark road out of Romarong is to commemorate life after a series of setbacks. Its victory is celebrated. In this historic piece of work, I also documented the struggle of Romarong becoming Sierra Leone. And then coincided it correctly with the 50th Anniversary of Sierra Leone. Many people have this book and album already. I want to present it again, this time, to concentrate on the message. Some might not think this is necessary now, but before I move on to other projects, I wanna ensure this bridge was crossed. This is a story about a journey.

    Freddy Will Industries would like to announce the re-release
    of Freddy Will’s Krio album with its corresponding book on 11-11-11″.

    It’s been another successful year for Freddy Will Industries. We celebrated a Grammy nomination this winter with the producers at East Coast Recordings in Philadelphia. A slew of Grammy Award-winning artists, industry superstars, spoken words artists, radio personalities and myself collaborated on the New York Coalition For Healthy School Foods’ double CD album “Healthy Food For Thought: Good Enough To Eat.” The double CD charity album brings awareness to type-2 diabetes and childhood obesity in New York. It received a Grammy nomination in December 2010 for the 2011 Grammy Awards.

    Sierra Leone celebrated its 50th Anniversary on April 27th, 2011 which perfectly coincided with my new Krio album and book and we closed a very significant deal with IGPC this spring that we won’t announce now but will change the game when we do. The Krio album has done very well on the Western front (also) since we released it last year and l who have a thing for numbers and dates decided to re-release the Krio album and the book this year to celebrate all these successes.

    To note: there is one English song on the album titled ‘Save’ featuring 5-time Grammy Award winner, gospel legend Carvin Winans. It is an environmental and socially conscious hit which calls for global intervention to levitate extreme health and socio-economic pandemics and natural disasters in the world today.

    The promoted singles off this re-release will be:
    ‘Athens Of West Africa,’ ‘Jos Cam,’ ‘Temperature,’
    and ‘Save’ – feat. Carvin Winans”.

    I wanted to create a record which would challenge me. I didn’t want to feature too many people either. On this album, I put my streetwise twist to West African storytelling which I think is needed in today’s’ art form. Then I stretched my vocal range between rapping and singing melodies on the verses (or in the hooks) so that I can prove to myself that if I really wanted to, I could sing. I noticed a few rappers singing hooks, and I wanted to try it. However, I won’t be singing a lot on my future records.*

    Leaving a Manipulative, Discourteous & Unchaste Companion in the 21st Century

    What is a continuous process where one person systematically diminishes the other’s internal consciousness? That is emotional abuse – the mania of the abuser on the condition of the abused. That obsessive preoccupation may persist throughout their cohabitation. When people have a disciplined conversation, they watch for statistics and findings from various credible studies. Sometimes I find that problematic, as we now have biased investors, researchers, analysts, or scientists who determine the results they want before starting a study.

    Jada, Jada, Jada. I knew all that Red Table Talk was a cry for help. And August Alsina said Will Smith gave permission? What king puts a ring on it, holds it down for twenty-something years, and then provides some kid with permission to smash his queen? I do not believe that for one second. The absurd part is Jada had already caused this havoc when she was calling Snoop Dogg out for checking Gayle King. After all that talk, Gayle, and Jada have not apologized to the public for what they did. That’s wrong.

    Saying Never to the Readily Available Free Pornography on the Internet

    Our civilization has gone through more than twenty years with instantly accessible [free] pornography on the web. In these twenty years, we have experienced a pioneering mobile phone revolution that has put the Internet in our pockets, twenty-four hours, and seven days all year long. That is at the same time when the genetic coding of most men dictates that every attractive woman we meet for the first time will arouse us sexually.

    I have made a climactic shift in the way I socialize with people. It’s not only that. These days, you won’t find me looking for new musicians, inviting strangers to see the latest blockbuster, and I don’t buy unproven video games anymore. Anything I touch should have a predefined motive. I have taken a step back. Today my approach in every situation is relatively reasonable. I look at the history of my involvement in a given situation to decide if that is a path worth continuing.
