Strong hip-hop stuff by IM’PERETIV
Artist about the track:
01.17.20 – Full Circle is the first single and title track off of Canadian HipHop producer IM’PERETIV’S debut EP Full Circle. The track features: 2009 XXL Freshman, Mickey Factz (NYC); End of the Weak Freestyle Champion, Junk (Vancouver); RedBull 3Style Champion, Flipout (Vancouver); and was mixed and mastered by Juno Nominated, Jamie Kuse (Vancouver). Full Circle is set over a hard hitting drum loop, setting the stage for Mickey and Junk to showcase their lyricism and Flipout to lay some impressive cuts.
There is a lot of meaning to the track and title with an incredible story. Before production IM’PERETIV was a sponsored snowboarder in Vancouver. He used a Mickey Factz song in what would be his last video part due to a collapsed eye socket. 10 years later Mickey Factz is appearing on a song on his debut EP. #FULLCIRCLE
