I recently caught up with Henry Da 8th and YTV (collectively known as “Freedom Of Press“). Here’s the exclusive interview, and make sure you check out the official bandcamp page for their brand new E.P “Yet To Verify”.
HHK: Thank you for taking the time to speak to Hip-Hop Kings guys. For the unfamiliar readers can you introduce Freedom of Press, and give us a brief introduction into your music career so far?
YTV: We’re an MC/DJ combination from the South of England. YTV on the mic and HENRYtha8TH on production and cuts. We’ve been on the local tip for quite a few years doing live shows making a name for ourselves, now we’re pushing our tracks to get heard around the rest of the UK.
HHK: You’ve recently released the “Yet to Verify E.P” which is available for purchase on the bandcamp page. How long did the project take to complete? And what are your personal favourite songs on there?
