“Me and fallin off, that don’t have no correlation!” -See. Francis
What’s good y’all? Y’all know I thoroughly enjoy many things. I enjoy my many hoods (Jersey City, Essex and Hudson county stand up!). I enjoy good music (whether it’s Dwele, Lupe or Marvin Gaye). But most of all, I enjoy “realness” (something a little more difficult to list). Fortunately, being a Twitter personality/myself, I was able to come in contact with a few people who encompass “that shit I do like”…(and no I’m not talking bout poor lil Chief Keef)
“Born in Newark, NJ, while also having ties across the Tri State Area, See. Francis began crafting his unique style of artistry at the age of 14 and soon after began producing. Inspired by a variety of artists such as Mos Def, Marvin Gaye, and King Crimson to name a few, See. Francis’ style of music came alive, creating his own exclusive style of lyricism to match his distinct personality. His life experiences have shaped him and given him the opportunity to be the artist he truly wants to be. #LightUP” (Credited to reverberation.com)
I started following See. Francis on twitter after seeing several tweets from him that I believe to be smart, creative, not of the majority, truthful and funny while not caring to cater to a specific audience or become a twitter character. (I call em’ “Real Nigga Tweets” lol) His tweets comprise of the love he has for his son and how much work he gets done in the studio, just to name a few. The funniest thing about it though, was that, initially, I didn’t know that he was a rapper, a pretty good one at that.
I began listening to some of See. Francis’ music. Which i’ll place toward the end of this post. But once we initiated contact he sent over some new sounds. ”Crack (Seemix)” was one of them. The words I have for this song= Dope, Explicit, turnt-up, Real nigga ish (if thats a word lol). No you will not find a Lupe Fiasco or B.O.B. type artist with See. Francis, and that’s not a bad thing. His lyrics are raw, full of life experiences and urban living and how he triumphs…. whether that be by beating the competition or by #LightinUP <–Which is another dope track by the way.
Below are more tracks by See. Francis that are appealing. To hear more of him visit the homie’s souncloud at http://soundcloud.com/casmirseefrancis. Hopefully, the next time you hear of See. Francis on the blog, i’ll either have live footage of him or an interview. But, for now, just settle for the greatness in underground music. Until next time, @therulah is out. Holla! #UndergroundMusicTuesday
