Sampa The Great Releases New Single ‘Freedom’

Zambian-born Sydney based rapper Sampa The Great has unveiled a new single ‘Freedom’ another of her charged music releases with powerful messages. The song follows the release of ‘OMG’ and ‘Final Form’ all of which have received enormous support and embody spirituality, mind-opening rhymes, self-discovery and uplifting musical experiences.

‘Freedom’ picks off on a relaxed instrumental, a mix of classic rock & blues with great strings casing the entire instrumental from the start to the end, driven by stuttering drum beats, the rapper gets on the track with thought and pride on a soulful track that is perfectly packaged to be simple yet powerful. The song is about struggles that artists go through in the music industry and how tough it is to balance between the art, earning a living and compromises one is forced to make.

“Freedom is about one of the most important talks you will ever have as an artist in this industry: the balance of earning a living and expressing your artistry, and what you’re willing to compromise through it all. It’s a blessing being able to create and express yourself through the arts and an even greater blessing when that artistry can provide a livelihood for you, but it’s likely you’ll reach a point in your career where you’ll be given a choice to compromise your artistic expression. How much you’re willing to compromise is a conversation discussed in Freedom.” Sampa speaks on her new release.

The ‘Freedom’ song is lifted off her upcoming album ‘The Return’ scheduled for release September 13 on Ninja Tunes.
