Allow Me To Introduce FKi & Nakim

For those that aren't in the know and are waiting on me to let them know, well you'll have to wait no longer. The GFC family is growing. We've been bubbling quietly, but you'll be hearing a lot more noise coming from us. Excuse me, I meant music not noise. Besides Mickey Factz, Jade, and Precize we have Nakim & FKi. These latter 2 acts are very important to the chemistry our family since they bring a varied dynamic and attitude to our sound.  Here is a new track from each of them.

Overdose On Life (Part 1) w/Travis of The Gym Class Heroes

Several weeks ago Mickey Factz leaked "Overdose On Life" as a part of his weekly leak series. The track showcasing him also featured Drake, a Canadian artist/actor of Degrassi fame and Travis McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes. The man responsible for the production and bringing all the parties involved together is Omen. If you don't know who Omen is, he's done work with Fabolous, Mya, Ludacris and most recently working with Dr. Dre (We're all still waiting for Detox). Omen will be releasing his album, Be The Judge, later on this year where "Overdose On Life" is the first single off that project.

Here, Omen will be presenting videos that will take us on a break down of the track with the artists involved. First up is your boy Travie. Check out the video below.
