I was saddened to hear that Supa Villain, a talented Gulfport, Mississippi-based rapper/producer, passed away last September. Up to that point, I had developed a sincere appreciation for the messages he conveyed in his music. 

One of my favorite projects from Supa Villain was his 2012 effort, FreeLANCE. Villain, who received moderate acclaim for his production on several of Alabama spitter Rich Boy's projects, showcased his skills both lyrically and behind the boards on the thought-provoking mixtape. 

"Declaration Of Independence" is a song that really touched me off the effort. In-between snippets of a motivational Will Smith interview, Villain paints a vivid picture of his relentless grind as an independent artist over a jazzy melody.

Check out "Declaration of Independence" below.

Rest peacefully, Villain. God bless.
