Canada's Godfather of Hip Hop, Maestro Fresh Wes, announces Coach Fresh, his new album, due out on November 17, 2017. Today, the iconic JUNO award-winning rapper releases the first tune from the new album, an end-to-end high spirits banger called Jurassic Park produced and featuring Toronto's Rich Kidd.
The anthemic jam was inspired by Rich's slammin' beat and the square where fans gather directly outside Toronto's Air Canada Centre prior to Raptors games. Created for Toronto Raptors fans with full appreciation of the pure enjoyment of the game, Jurassic Park is released in celebration of their home opening game.
Through 13 tracks, Coach Fresh explores exhilaration, social commentary, role models, love and loss with plenty of time for featured guests. Wes collaborates with NYC wordsmith Skyzoo on Designated Driver, west coast underground legend Ras Kass on Mr. Evans, Kool Keith of the legendary Ultramagnetic MC's on Skyscrapers and orchestrates a special reunion of Ghetto Concept and Infinite on Toronto Icons. Danko Jones appears on the Last Waltz while songstress Ivana Santilli appears on the King Reign tribute entitled Tomorrow Never Promised. Saukrates and Rich Kidd join The Distance. Female vocalists Faith Walker and Halifax-based soul singer Cyndi Cain also can be heard on the album.
