Sometimes, the gift of discovery is realizing that you were essentially born to excel in a realm you never realized you had potential in. I had the pleasure of recently meeting Abuzayed the Free, and in a few brief conversations we spoke on topics such as self-reflection, potential, artistic responsibility and much more. It made it that much more rewarding when I had the pleasure of hearing her debut project, Worlds Within. The project wonderfully blends reflections on culture, religion, spirituality and self-affirmation. It’s hard to believe that this is a first attempt at an album… the production is solid, both on the beats and the recording quality, and the content is uplifting and enlightening. I highly recommend folks checking this out and sharing it far and wide.
