Growing up in Brooklyn in the late ‘90s, Frankie Krutches dealt with more than his fair share of adversity. Shortly after losing his father to HIV and many of his friends to the prison system, Krutches fell victim to a gunshot wound in the left leg (hence the name, “Krutches”). Hoping for brighter days ahead, Frankie has left his past behind him and on his new single, he raps about the hip-hop lifestyle of Timbos & Range Rovs. Assisted by fellow Northeast MCs Red Café and Cassidy, as well producer GQ Beats, Timbos & Range Rovs is a perfect example of modern-day underground East Coast hip-hop. Krutches will release his debut album, Clarity, in the first quarter of ‘09.
