In every job there is honour, no matter how grand or menial the task. Some employers will attempt to twist this concept into their own desired outcomes and needs, but as a general thought this rings true for millions of people who undertake their daily work each day, all year round, unfailingly. With his Brand New release 'My People', Toronto based emcee and Freedom Writers/Empire member Adam Bomb celebrates the resilience, dedication and heart possesed by workers in all walks of life. From the ticket takers in movie theatre lobbies to the nurses in overcrowded hospitals, everyone is on a path to progression even if their current job is just a stepping stone to greater things.
As an emcee, a job that hordes of aspiring artists apply for each year, there are certain roles and responsibilities one must fulfill. Being original, creative and fearless top that list and Adam Bomb has consistently raised the bar with unbelievable flows, infectious hooks and thought provoking content for the masses. Having the support of your peers is also a qualification and with a growing list of notables including Canadian Hip Hop legend Maestro Fresh Wes, FLOW 93.5fm radio host Mastermind and Polaris prize nominee D Sisive onboard, Bomb is reaching new heights wih each new endeavour.
