    Your MPFree this week is the final track from the Adult Swim Series of 2012 free downloads. And what a way to end!

    Your MPFree today was a tip-off from The Pharcyde; probably because it's the solo project of one of the members of the group.

    Frank Friction is the alter-ego of Bootie Brown. On this tracks he's teamed up with Parisian producer Kurser who's also worked with the likes of De La Soul.
