This is a collection of songs dedicated to the working class and loosely inspired by NC’s failing economy. Supastition was inspired to write the EP after NC became the first state to eliminate federal unemployment benefits in 2013. A lot of people, including Supa, felt the effects of it. While he was searching for a job himself, Supastition documented those struggles first hand with the Honest Living EP. Croup is no stranger to Supastition music. They recorded their first official song (Adrenaline) on Supastition’s The Deadline. Since then, they’ve been working together and crafting songs. Croup is one of the few producers who didn’t change his sound just to get major placements. As a unit, Supa and Croup both refuse to compromise their sound and only care to appeal to those who dig that vintage sounding hip hop.
Thank you to all of the supporters worldwide who gave this EP an honest listen. If you’re loving the music then please spread the word to those who you think will enjoy it as much as you do.

..Singing the classic “You’ll Never Find Another Love”. Too bad we only got a shitty audio/video of it, but you can check out this track on my ‘February Mixtape’ that i’ll be dropping tomorrow.
TKA had a whole catalog of classic joints..This is one of my favorite ones.
I continue to post up classic Freestyle joints in preparation for the upcoming Valentine’s Day mix…
Doing the Freestyle classic “Give me back my heart”…
Stevie B (Steven Bernard Hill) is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer who was influential in the Latin freestyle and High-Energy, mostly from Miami dance music scene of the late 1980s. Also known as the King of Freestyle, Stevie B is perhaps best-known for his 1990 number-one hit “Because I Love You (The Postman Song).”
Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Stevie B worked a variety of jobs—from car washing to fast food—before gaining recognition for his 1987 national club smash “Party Your Body”. It was also the title track of his 1988 debut LP, which eventually went gold. In 1989, he had his first top 40 hits with “I Wanna Be the One,” “In My Eyes,” and “Love Me For Life.” With his 1990 album, Love & Emotion, he reached the height of his success, with the accompanying single “Because I Love You” enjoying four weeks at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in December 1990. He had two subsequent top 15 hits with “I’ll Be by Your Side” and the title cut. In 1998, The Best of Stevie B was released, highlighting the light dance-pop sound that marked the start of his career.
I figured i’d post this clip on the Latin Freestyle music scene from the mid 80’s to late 90’s before i drop my upcoming ‘Freestyle’ mix on Feb. 15th. Enjoy!
