consistently making higher quality music year in, year out.
When asked more personally about how they
want to be perceived and remembered,
Freels said: "I plan to really leave my mark on
the music industry, and show people it
doesn't matter what situation you come from.
Everything is temporary, and with determination
you can really do whatever you want." Freels
closed the interview by sharing his
recommendation for anybody who wanted to follow
in his footsteps in some fashion, perhaps taking
the achievements even further.
