ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Co-founder & leader of the Massachusetts-based Hip Hop collective, 3rd EyE Unlimited, First Be has utilized his gifts of writing and performing as a tool to motivate the masses and inspire others he works with. He has left many New England crowds feeling blown away by his wisdom, emotion, and powerful cadence. First Be, formerly First Born, is anchored by originality & creativity, as illustrated by his namesake, but is quick to note the lyrical greats that have influenced him. "I was originally inspired to start writing rhymes by Wu Tang & Nas in 94-95. I'm a pure lyric head, a true believer in illmatic liquid swords, gems that make you wanna keep listening, they feed your mentals. Cats like Ras Kass, Common, Andre 3000, Talib Kweli, and the list goes on, have kept that higher standard for me to shoot for."


The premier unleashing of First's treasure chest of lyrical gems is his debut album, The Essence of Omnipresence. "The title is how I describe my style. I always wanted to name my album that. My style of writing reflects everything around me (omnipresence), and all that is essential-everything connects to me. But I'm also always trying to write lyrics no one else can or will spit out. That's the essence of mcin' to me." This sansei-like approach can be found on stage, or in freestyle ciphers, where the goal is not to run out of words to flip and ways to freak 'em.


First brings conscious Hip Hop lyrics to another level, while still remaining understandable, witty, and fierce on the mic. "To me, an emcee is a reporter too, to bring something new or the new(s) to people, a wake up call. Artists who take it there get me motivated, so I gotta shine that energy back to the people as well." First comes at it from multiple perspectives though: "The cream of the crop for me, is when an emcee has the range to flip a wake up call, a battle joint, a love song, a party joint, & an ill concept song within the same album. You can't be one dimensional, show us your range."


First believes that he has found that recipe for range with The Essence of Omnipresence. "Part of the meaning of the title is that I'm coming from all different (omnipresent) directions. Don't try to box me in or pigeon hole me, because you'll run out of room."


First is landing on May 14th with a large supporting cast which includes the Kamakazee Kru, and many others mostly from the Secret City of New Bedford, MA. "There's talent everywhere, but it's tougher to get shine in some places. New Bedford's one of those spots. But we've created outlets and are expanding in the face of hopelessness." The Essence of Omnipresence features seventeen bangers produced by 8 different beat-makers who call the Secret City their home. The album also features numerous lyrical co-stars, a few of which are being unveiled for the first time. "The album's intense. We've spent a lot of time assembling it for Hip Hop-straight up."

Classic Writtin Scrolls that cant be pigeon holed.....
A Classic.... Straight fire from the intro to the last joint, no need for any buttons except the play button. Definetly one of the hottest albums i have purchased in awhile. Every track takes you on a journey through the "ESSENCE"..the Essence of time....The Essence of Rhyme....and the Essence of LIFE. Such a huge cluster of messages all laced into one small package... I probably learned more threw this album then i had during a whole year in high school...but anyways i cant wait for the wax, you gotta get it to all the dj's out there to get these joints on the radio ill keep checkin your website for any updates on that.. keep up the good work keep movin
