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.Â
After releasing his highly anticipated Who’s Watching The Kids project last August, he joined the Birth Of A New Nation TourÂ withÂ PnB Rock, Dae Dae,Â andÂ Shy Glizzy. Fontane closed the year by announcing he signed a deal withÂ 300 EntertainmentÂ and re-released his popular “Down By The River” single with the label.
Today, Fontane grabs producerÂ Kev RodgersÂ 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.”Â
Rapping over a soulful sample ofÂ 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!
