The DJ, rapper, and music producer known as Darkside has released his latest EP album, “Free Agent (Tru Stories).” The EP contains six original songs and has an approximate total listening time of 22 minutes. It proudly has been released on the Born Famous Entertainment independent record label. Heavy on the bass, racked with rhythm and packed with urban poetry, “Free Agent (Tru Stories)” by Darkside is clearly one of the indie rap titles to hear in the summer of 2014.

Darkside cites as main artistic influences some of the most seminal songwriters in hip hop, including KRS-One, Rakim, Wu-Tang Clan, DMX, the Notorious B.I.G.,and Jay-Z. These inspirations speak volumes about the material listeners can expect from Darkside on “Free Agent (Tru Stories).” His natural groove and unstoppable flow loom second only to the weight of his carefully penned lyrics. Like much of the work of KRS-One, Tupac Shakur and Michael Franti, Darkside's material is gritty, true-to-life and cleverly worded.

Darkside, who started as a DJ at the age of 10, was raised in Baltimore with hip hop in his bones and a message in his mind.

“My message to my listeners,” he writes, “is that if you have a dream, pursue it. Everyone has their ups and downs in life but if you stay focused on your dreams, then the sky's the limit.”

The dual title of his new record is both literal and appropriate. It is his debut solo release, having collaborated with other artists for many years. It is also a work of non-fiction.

“Everything that I write is real,” Darkside comments. “If you're good at writing and telling stories, then share it with the world. Whatever you feel God has blessed you with, take advantage of your gifts and pursue your dream. You will never know how successful you can be if you don't try. Be as real as possible and strive to be the best at everything you do in life.”

“Free Agent (Tru Stories)” by Darkside is available online worldwide.
