About Coach Fresh
"...a record that takes its central metaphor as a jumping-off point to explore everything from sports as culture, community, and entertainment, to leadership, legacy and fatherhood, as well as love and grief, systemic racism and oppression, the human and social costs of anti-black violence and survival " - Andrea Warner, CBC Music
Through 13 tracks, Coach Fresh explores exhilaration, social commentary, role models, love and loss and has plenty of time for featured guests. Wes collaborates with NYC wordsmith Skyzoo on Designated Driver, west coast underground legend Ras Kass on Mr. Evans, Kool Keith of the legendary Ultramagnetic MC's on Skyscrapers and orchestrates a special reunion of Ghetto Concept and Infinite on Toronto Icons. Danko Jones appears on the crazy joint Last Waltz while songstress Ivana Santilli appears on the King Reign tribute entitled Tomorrow Never Promised. Saukrates and Rich Kidd join on The Distance.
