Freedom Vol. 1 by Shemspeed Select

Freedom Vol. 1 by Shemspeed Select

Just in time for Passover, feel the freedom on Shemspeed Select "Freedom Vol. 1." This all-star album explores freedom on all levels-from Bonhom's "Live for Now" anthem to Levi Mordechai's "Ani Od Chai" (I Am Still Alive) to SHI 360's hard-hitting "Hofshia" about female empowerment. Mikey Pauker inspires you to discover Zion within yourself, while Eprhyme's "Shalom Salaam" encourages us to free ourselves "not by money media manipulation...and not by power, but by spirit shall we become free." Soak in the spirit of freedom and download your copy right here!
