Free is giving fans this loose single, “F*** All Ya’ll” – it is not on an EP or album (yet). Brenton Freeman, better known as B Free, is a Detroit-raised rapper who utilizes his emotions, stories, and undulating melodies to captivate his audience and encourage them to be themselves boldly, building a family not a fan base. A musician since the time he could walk, B Free, with his brother and producer Prod. ByBert, fell in love with performing and creating music that makes people move. Over the years, the Federation Music Group artist has shared the stage with artists like Lil Wayne, Young Dolph, and Rich the Kid while collaborating on the highly-anticipated single “All Mine” with Diggy Simmons and working on his own soon-to-be-released EP, “Lost in Paradise.” The envelope is being pushed for what defines hip- hop in Detroit and B Free is on the frontier, expressing himself in music that is unapologetic and irresistibl
