It’s been a while since fans have received new music from Jersey’s Mir Fontane, though it’s clear he hasn’t slowed down.
After releasing his highly anticipated Who’s Watching The Kids project last August, he joined the Birth Of A New Nation Tour with PnB Rock, Dae Dae, and Shy Glizzy. Fontane closed the year by announcing he signed a deal with 300 Entertainment and re-released his popular “Down By The River” single with the label.
Today, Fontane grabs producer Kev Rodgers to deliver a new freestyle titled “Before The Locs.” The title serves as a nod to his “Options” verse where he raps “I remember Fontane way before he had the locs.”
Rapping over a soulful sample of Donny Hathaway‘s “Giving Up,” he reflects on his success and the changes he’s experienced. With a new label behind him, Fontane is looking to have a big year ahead of him. Listen to “Before the Locs” below and let us know what you think!
