Freddy Will!

The Sandmann's Journal Vol. 1 talks about the challenges Freddy Will faced at the beginning of his music and literary careers in Toronto, Canada. It gives an insight into his musical influences. He talks about his favorite celebrities, emcees, cars and how his blog came to pass. 

The Sandmann’s Journal Vol. 2 is a continuation of volume 1. Taken from my blog, dates at the beginning of each chapter indicate when they were initially published. Though factual, these entries are not intended to have journalistic value even though there are interviews with Eddie Bullen and his son, Quincy Bullen |whom I’d worked with|. At the time, I had limited access to mainstream radio, television, and very little internet presence. The blog served as a platform where I could address the public and speak on various topics relevant to the Kulture of Hip Hop. 

At the time I was battling with the ongoing castigation of patriarchy in exchange for matriarchy and feminism. It is not matriarchy that I resented, rather, it was unacceptability. In these chapters, you will be taught how to balance Hip Hop creed with religious belief. This is at the time when I wrote about misconceptions, the correct look for a Hip Hop dude and the irony of how singer Lady Gaga is accepted to be "born this way" but rapper DMX was not. Meaning, the mainstream accepts Lady Gaga's endeavor while it rejects DMX's. Surrounding the murder of Trayvon Martin I touched on civil activism by showing how a TV show like “Jersey Shore” could strip some of its slang from Hip Hop without giving any credit.
