Freedom Is A Word

Collaboration is slippery business. Most are usually overhyped and unbalanced, but the great pairings throughout time – Wine & Cheese, Gin & Tonic, Bondax & Friends – have created impact both timeless and without boundary. Add Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah & Vic Mensa to the list and slide me a drink when you’re done.

 

The duo released ­Freedom Is A Word a few days ago and the individuality of both artists is what sets it apart and brings it together. Scott’s unmatched talent behind the brass poses the questions and lays the mysterious and engaging framework for the song while Mensa in standard outspoken fashion responds to the inquiry. The result leaves me pondering the state of the world, hailing the bartender for another drink, and begging the two artists for more music. Listen below.
