recently told Allhiphop.com, "We made sure to have real content on this song, we're not just slamming hooks and verses on beats, we're paying attention to the content, we gotta be strong, inspirational and motivational."
"I got involved in this project because it has a strong message, which is not the case anymore or hasn't been for a long time in hip hop music," states Joseph Charles record label executive with The Cherry Party/Sony Music. "In the beginning hip-hop music was always fun, then it turned into gangsta rap and you know the rest of the story... I felt the need to get involved, I felt this project could make a difference in hip-hop. It could be music that kids wouldn't have to hide from their parents or teachers, whole families can listen and enjoy together. This is a feel good project that everyone needs to hear to appreciate."
Recently, The Boombox premiered the 2nd single from the project, "Airtime," which features Future, Sean Garrett, Rocko and Baller Lou Williams. You can find the embeddable Soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/fcpvolume1/airtimefcp/s-LOWg7
As Glen "Big Baby" Davis proudly reflects on the album, "Kids love music and kids love athletes - to get athletes and artist together and create a positive message that's strong, that's strong - kids will LISTEN."
