A Free Agent  What-This-Can-Be   Options     2013    A Free Agent is a collective featuring main man, New Yorker Johnpaul Calderon who tells me that "I make the songs completely myself and sometimes have guest DJ's kut on them with me.DJ's who I feel very strongly about and dont have much exposure nor want it...they do this outta the fervor of B-boying,like i do.also,it depends on the Track- 98% of the posted tracks are just me." The turntable artist, whose great music I just got exposed to this week, has a rare type of M.S called 'Marburg' and he continue to get more and more lesions in his brain and due to that fact, he tells me, that "every year or so I lose another function. I have had 3 strokes....but thats no F@#KIN' reason to not 'Blast Mind Concepts into Reality or be lazy and not leave great big marks on the Earth...like the Pyramids."  *   0:11:04 ()
