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!
