FOCUS THE TRUTH - BERWICK ROAD
Raised in Jamaica Queens, New York, Focus The Truth recently spent two years recording/producing tracks and music videos in London, UK. MC’ing since the age of fourteen, Focus learned the power of lyrics and how they can be used to deliver a message, rather than present largely untrue tales to reinforce stereotypes.
The new generation of hip hop, at least for Focus, has produced a well-rounded intellectual who doesn't just ride the conscious tip, contrary to what people may believe.
Focus’s latest 17-song LP, “Berwick Road”, has created a major buzz among the hip-hop heads and music community. “Berwick Road” explores tales of London life and New York memories, nestled alongside odes to the odd night of excess. The majority of the production on the album came courtesy of London’s Smoking Indoors, and the pair have cut samples from classic blues like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Nina Simone, to reggae influences including Barrington Levy, a track featuring Jamaican reggae artist King Soyah, as well as more contemporary samples from the likes of Sia.
