All Things Collective Efforts

Collective Efforts is a crew out of Atlanta, GA that was formed out of the ashes of Live on Arrival and has been laying down positive hip-hop vibes for the better part of a decade. The crew originally consisted of three MCs and a DJ, but they’ve recently expanded their entourage to include an eclectically-influenced backing band where each member brings something unique to the table giving the crew a more dynamic and full sound.

Check the free single, “Crazy Things”, off their upcoming full length, Freezing World, set to be released on February 16th on 1320 Records. (Simply add the free track to your cart, sign up, then select the download preference of your choice.)

The crew made an appearance on the 11Alive (Atlanta’s NBC affiliate) morning show last week to perform a few songs. Check the video below and be on the lookout for the unedited footage to come out sometime relatively soon.

Diggin’ the vibes you heard above. Don’t sleep on two of their earlier works. Crucial additions to your crates.

If I lived back in the ATL, I’d be sure to make my way to Smith’s Olde Bar on February 26th for the Freezing World release party which will also feature both Dillon and, the triple threat himself, J-Live. Gonna be bananas nice. Don’t hesitate!
