Fresh Breath Committee
Fresh Breath Committee – Denver, Colorado
Early 2000â€™s were a great time for Hip Hop in Los Angeles.Â There were these crews that popped up all over the place that were just grinding this underground backpack scene harder than anyone I had seen.Â We had 2Mex and The Visionaries, La Symphony and my boys, the almighty Dilated Peoples crew.Â There was a rawness in these crews that paid homage to the pillars of Hip Hop in their own unique way.Â I found this next crew quite by accident.Â I saw a promo they did with Dilated Peoples, so I checked them out.Â Fresh Breath Committee, it turns out, are from Colorado with more Mcâ€™s in the crew than Odd Future.Â They incorporate turntablism, live instrumentation, singing with a jazzy feel.Â My beef with where we were with Hip Hop a little while back is that it lost its feel as music, lacked structure, vision, definition, creativity and was overtly repetitive .Â Fresh Breath Committee are aptly named as they breath new life into the music for me.Â They arenâ€™t too serious but their songs have substance.Â I have to admit, I am a bit befuddled by the fact they arenâ€™t from Cali, they would fit right in LA during either of my favorite times in Hip Hop, the early 90â€™s or early 2000â€™s.Â For that reason alone I dig this crew.Â So in closing I want to say big up to Babu, Rakaa Iriscience and Evidence from Dilated Peoples and in 10 years I hope to be giving a similar shout out to another crew whose music could stand the test of time, Fresh Breath Committee.
