Since his release from prison in March of 2020, independent rap phenom Fresh Porter has been taking the streets by storm. By releasing 6 projects since 2019, Porter has made it clear that he is not letting up. As a Father, rapper, and entrepreneur, Fresh Porter has always pushed ownership and a vigilant work ethic. With past collaborations with Trey Songz and Pooh Shiesty, and with the arrival of his most recent single, “Get Around,” featuring Pusha T, Fresh Porter is establishing himself as a significant player in the Virginia music scene. 

With a catalog of classic records like the Neptunes-produced “Grinding” or Kanye West-produced “New God Flow,” Pusha T has cemented his status as a hip hop icon and Virginia legend. Off the back of his most recent album, It’s Almost Dry, Pusha hasn’t let off the gas and is reaching back to shed light on artists from his home state. When asked how this collab came to fruition, Porter stated that he randomly DM’d Pusha T saying, “man, my album ain’t complete until I have a feature from you,” and Pusha responded with “send it.” He continued, saying, “I sent him like 3 records, and Get Around was the one he chose.” Within 7 days, Porter received the verse back from Pusha T; the rest is history. 

Coming off his last project release, Sum 2 Trap 2, Porter highlights his ties to the streets, and you can hear that same influence throughout this single. Pusha also tends to highlight his life in the streets throughout his entire discography, so you can already imagine how well these two complement each other on a track. Lyrics aside, the dark and gritty tone of the song was enhanced with production from Billboard #1 producer, songwriter, and fellow Virginia native MØW. When asked about his process in crafting the track’s sonics, he said, “After hearing Pusha T’s verse, I knew I had to go back and add some post-production to make the record sound as big as possible. So I enlisted the help of 2 of my mentors, James “JStorm706″ Patrick and Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Rome Palermo, to help bring more life out of the record and add some analog grit.” 

You can find Fresh Porter’s New Single “Get Around,” featuring Pusha T, on all streaming platforms.
