Setting us up properly for the release of his upcoming album, Miami native and indie emcee Phresh James has dropped a gem for his fan base to enjoy and let marinate until the full project breaks in Spring 2014. An ode to revering a life that most yearn for its materialistic offerings, “Chasing Karats,” serving as the first single from James’ The Greater Good, finds the artist relaying his own idea of “karats,” the overall journey on one’s climb to the top. When many aspiring artists are likening their idea of success to those of a braggadocious nature, James focuses on the lessons that run deeper than the surface, and offer a much higher reward = life, wealth & health. The DJ Sharpsound produced track plays the breezy backdrop role perfectly to this humbled, carefree lyrical approach, catalyzing his audience’s anticipation for what’s to come, and we're glad it comes in nothing short of our expectations.
“Chasing Karats” was recorded by Home Bass Studio, can be streamed & downloaded on Soundcloud, and will be officially available next year on The Greater Good.
