Based out of Newport, RI, Freddie and B-Luv met as teenagers after B-Luv had moved from Philly. From a young age the two had instant chemistry on the mic, but would not pursue music together until much later. Freddie however had sought a solo career that would take him from Atlanta to the West Coast. As Freddie made connections with various producers and emcees, he would ultimately release his mixtape “X-Files” featuring verses from B-Luv among others. With the reception of their head-turning verses on the tracks Zonin’ and The Chat, the two joined together under the name Everybody Luv Black. ELB released their debut self titled LP “Everybody Luv Black” in the summer of 2014.

He is a teacher, a philosopher, an entrepreneur, a lyricist, an activist, and so many things – but there’s no denying – he is Hip Hop.  Also a member of the Zulu Nation, he has been rocking mics and stages for years both nationally and internationally representing that beautiful golden age of Hip Hop.  He is a true Master of Ceremonies, one of the all-time emcees, he’s a party rocker. You have a lot of opportunities to see amazing music in this small state.  There’s no shortage of it.  It’s everywhere, the RI music scene is flourishing with shows, talent, and opportunities to get out.  But the last time he came to town he drew this awesome crowd. On October 15th you should get out to Simon’s in Providence where KRS will be taking the stage (courtesy of the Keynote Company).  You won’t be disappointed.  His last show was alive with energy.  It was a classic evening of Hip Hop.  From the seasoned openers, to the bboys from Project 401, to the live graffiti, the night played out to be full of energy and alive...
