Biography


Struggle.
That in one word describes the childhood, the life and music career of Robert Wilson.
But growing up in poverty didn't stop his love of music, it fostered it.
Music became the most important source of refuge in his young life.
From the dysfunction around him he learned to reach inside and found a way to grasp attention then would turn around and use it entertain those around him.
Today, same story. Different decade. Except he's more well known now as Fresh IE.

Fresh IE not only writes his own music he produces almost all of the beats and rythems that pound with every verse. The first commercial project he created in his living room made Canadian history. With songs raw from years of struggling, Red Letterz, filtered into mindset of people who voted Fresh IE, to become the first Canadian rapper ever to be nominated for a Grammy.
Selected to the top five in his category among thousands of other worthy submissions.
Upon reflection Fresh IE says, "To say I didn't dream of being nominated and eventually winning a Grammy would be a lie. I dreamed of success not knowing as a child daring to believe in my dreams would actually put me in the same league as those I admired as a child."

Feeling the pressure to do it again, he did it. Fresh IE's follow-up project, Truth Is Fallin in the Streetz, won him another gold medal nomination, for a Grammy. The album, created in his brand new studio, fit the calling Fresh was hearing in life too. To take the truth of life's struggles and victories to the streets that need it most. Kids, teens and hip hop fans that most artists ignore, intentionally or not. Turning his music career to a love for those still struggle and resisting the urge to follow after fame, Fresh IE started travelling to Canada's First Nations remote and northern reserves. He found the greatest return for his investment, a generation who embraces his hope inspiring music.

Lockjaw, re-released as Out tha Oven, started to reveal the rock edge in Fresh IE. The album was nominated for numerous awards winning a few, including 2 Covenant Awards, a Gospel Music Award. Lockjaw/Out tha Oven is a cry that gives fans a voice starving for attention. A voice not to be ignored, helping fans declare life as if it was new, fresh out the oven.
"Lockjaw was about my fans grabbing a hold of the life they deserve," says Fresh IE, "declaring war on failure and defying statistics."

To follow suit, Fresh IE defies the way he normally creates music. He formed a live band, The Unashamed, and recorded 'Inside.' With this latest project barely out of production Fresh IE and The Unashamed went on tour across six provinces. Playing at venues in youth prisons, festivals and to his biggest audience to date at the 2010 Olympics to throng of 80 thousand plus people screaming at the top of their lungs. "It was a huge rush, one I'll never forget. An extreme honour to play for such a historic world event," says Fresh IE.

Struggle is never far away though. Reminding Fresh IE of how hard he has to work to get his music to ones who need it most no matter what happens in life. The letters he recieves from fans say it all. This one is part of a hand written note from a teen girl in a youth centre was struggling with suicide. Madeline writes, "I wanted you to know how much you inspire me. Your songs help me to stay strong, they give the sense of belonging. I feel good again and (am) happy to be alive."
Madeline goes on to say, she wants to eventually create her own music to help more people.

Fresh IE's been writing and producing his own music for the past 10 years and has enough new material for at least two more albums. Although there's been plenty times and situations in the last decade that made this independant artist want to quit the music business, he refuses to give up. In fact, he is still struggling and chasing his own dream of one day holding a gramaphone in his hands. Not only for himself but for those who can't get there and for those who've helped him get where he's at right now. In the meantime he embraces the struggle Hoping his music will keep inspiring those who need hope and victory in life.

CRY BABY

Written By: R. WILSON

CRY BABY
Written by R. Wilson and B foster
Chorus
I can hear them cry out for something there lacking that loving
Their running there stunting there dying for nothing
losing control loosing there hope
gaining the world but loosing their soul
but cry baby cry no need to hide
the feelings and pain that your holding inside
just let it go don't dry your eyes
I'll be that shoulder so cry baby cry
verse 1
Can anybody hear it subtle and quiet
but inside its building its tension a riot
a war between flesh and the spirit
I looked in his eyes and saw me in the mirror
his demeanour lifeless eyes open but sightless
can you see it? Wait! Let me turn off the lights
so you could see how our youth are crying for life
So shallow and empty as they lurk in the light
But when he picked up a mic it was Jekyll and Hyde
expressions of sorrow but hopelessness died
with line upon line as he cried in rhyme
like it was the last chance for the shine
but when light less and mic less he ran with the rest
yes the young and the restless who run til they breathless
when music was fret less he laid in his bed
with tears in his eyes and headphones on his head
Chorus
I can hear them cry out for something there lacking that loving
Their running there stunting there dying for nothing
losing control loosing there hope
gaining the world but loosing their soul
but cry baby cry no need to hide
the feelings and pain that your holding inside
just let it go don't dry your eyes
I'll be that shoulder so cry baby cry
Verse 2
Alone in the dark water drips from the faucet
shes haunted by monsters coming out of her closet
she want to talk to her mama but thoughts of the drama
can split her whole world from its trauma
justice is past due lust and its wrath came through
now it hurts to go to the bathroom
if they only seen the bruises he left
she scratches and kicks but he chooses to use her
abuse her respect suppose to protect
but cracks in the wood show signs of footsteps
yet who can she run to? Who can she come to?
Wait here he comes again, God can you come thru?
Standing at the end of the bed is that monster
ready to rape and to take what he wants to.
His shadow reflects on the wall as she calls out
wait theres another shadow on the wall
Chorus
I can hear them cry out for something there lacking that loving
Their running there stunting there dying for nothing
losing control loosing there hope
gaining the world but loosing their soul
but cry baby cry no need to hide
the feelings and pain that your holding inside
just let it go don't dry your eyes
I'll be that shoulder so cry baby cry

HOSANNA

Written By: R. WILSON, B. FOSTER

HOSANNA
Written by R. Wilson B. Foster
Never thought it would come down to this,
My life was a mess daily clinching my fist,
Cause i miss my Mom and Pops hit the block,
And if Moms didn't cop, than Moms got a knot,
I was lost in my sin and fuelled by the pain,
Growing up too fast, and was far from the name,
That gave up His life, so that i could be free,
Could relate to my pains and love me for me,
Could this be that you loved me, and covered me in grace,
You preserved my life and you saved me through faith,
What a name my King i lift up my banner,
Hosanna, we stand on that Manna, your Plan's for our life,
Your the way, the Truth, was my light,
in the Darkest, of nights, almost gave up my life,
But You gave up your life, God's gift to this World,
So i lift up your Name in the midst of this world,
Chorus
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Hosanna, Hosanna,
King of Kings I worship You
My God!
Verse 2
Lord We lift up your Name,
In holiness, lowliness never be the same,
We stand in this place, with our hands in the air,
Not worthy by Grace you made us an Heir,
You made us a chair at the table of life,
was unable to fight, so you stood at our plight,
They mocked and they slandered your name,
Still I'm glad that you came, i will stand unashamed to proclaim,
Your Glorious Reign, Victorious stains,
Rip torn, and was maimed, His story remains,
His Glory, His flame,His fire the Father,
To fatherless honour the Martyr, of Martyr's
We worship You seek We search and surrender,
The Heavens and Earth bow down to Your splendour
Crown full of life, we continue His work,
Hosanna we praise to the ends of the earth,
Chorus
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Hosanna, Hosanna,
King of kings we worship You
My God!

BOXES

Written By: R. WILSON

BOXES
Written by: R. Wilson B. Foster
Verse 1
Trapped in these Boxes, unworthy causes,
The real Me is covered up like some Galoshes,
I read Galatians, and started Praying,
But then I stumbled dang I just can't seem to make it,
The Storm is hitting hard the Rain is Flooding all my Faith Kid,
Please don't Forsake me, help Me do whats Sacred,
Break Free, Life inside My box I must escape it,
Man it's just a Rapist, there to take my Basic,
Instructions be-fore I leave this World into Grace,
Or Maybe in the Matrix, maybe in a Matrix,
either way I'll be away from all this fakeness,
They said Life is what you make it, so I made a Spaceship,
To fly away From misery this box became complacent,
So I left the Master Room, to go sleep in the Basement,
I humbled Myself and slept in the Basement
Chorus
I can't breathe I'm fading, My heart is suffocating,
Life in these Boxes
I can't see, I'm Pleading, I need to find a meaning,
Life in these Boxes
Verse 2
It started out true Love has begat Me,
I thought I found the one instead He started out with Slapping,
At first He used to laugh in-side that local Tavern,
Then one night I caught Him flirting with My Cousin Cathryn,
He threw Me up against the Wall and the He started Laughing,
Without Love or compassion, He became abusive,
Slapping turned to punch, then I started slapping back,
Till one night He grabbed His 22 and jammed it in My back,
He said if I ever left He would break My little neck,
Now I'm trapped up in this little Prison needing some protection,
Maybe some direction, Divine Intervention,
Cause I'm feeling caught up in this Life that's full of tension,
Hey! Did I mention, I need intervention,
I just wanna start again, escape this suffocation
Chorus
I can't breathe I'm fading, My heart is suffocating,
Life in these Boxes
I can't see, I'm Pleading, I need to find a meaning,
Life in these Boxes

I'm hungry, do You have a quarter?
I'm thirsty, do You have some Water?
I'm Homeless, do You have some shelter,
I'm in prison, will You come and see Me
Verse 1
On top of the World,
used to be an executive on top of my field,
Never thought I would struggle, just to cop a meal,
Steak and Lobster, was the norm I had mass appeal,
Opportunity knocked but I git amnesia,
Opened Doors but I'm lost without keys like alicia,
Oh please-a! Could You spare some change Oh please-a,
I used to master Life like Master cards or a Visa,
Squeeze Lime in Tequila, I felt so happy,
I used to rock my box, break, Pop in the alley,
Now I rock a cardboard box in the Alley,
Help Me out I rock a box in the Alley

Help Me out of the Cold,
Help Me out of My pain,
Help Me out of the dark,
Help Me out of My chains,
Cause I need a dollar, to get out of the Rain!!

I miss my Wife I will never forget Her,
Never regret We were together, although that I let Her Fly
We used to sing duets on set sure,
Now I'm washed up in a sea of forgetful,
I'm so cold could you loan me a sweater,
Help me with My ailments, cause I'm under the weather,
Please don't pass me by the rain is getting me wetter,
I'm feeling so helpless, I cant get it together,
Let your heart find a place to forgive a debtor,
Yes sir a nickel, dime, will help me refresh burr
This north wind, my skin is thinner than pleather,
I had it all thought i was tougher than leather,
But i watched my cheddar, go through a shredder,
Now i have no ends, or no future endeavours,
but i need a doctor like pepper however,
I prayed last night with a Pastor named Trevor,
Yes Sir!!
Chorus
I'm hungry, do you have a quarter?
I'm thirsty, do you have some Water?
I'm Homeless, do you have some shelter,
I'm in prison, will you come and see Me

I'm thirsty, do you have some Water?
I'm Homeless, do you have some shelter,
I'm in prison, will you come and see Me

verse 2
Like the sunbeam through the window, like the moon in the night
You overshadow me with healing and your word is my light
Your my water in this desert and my grace through the night
took me through some rough roads and you train me to fight
like a rose in concrete your shining so bright
when I enter in worship you lift me in flight
when im weak in this flesh your strong in your might
you indue me with power and your beats are so tight
your the strength in my song my towering high
when I was blind in these streets you gave me my sight
im so thankful for your word it cuts like a knife
I acknowledge that I need you I give you my life

an instrument of righteousness
I need you
verse 3
Your my saviour your my friend the red ink in this pen
The remission of my sin that still voice in the wind
Your that still in the waters, that peace in the storm
This world is your enemy, I'm fighting not to conform
I'm pressing for that mark that I was missing before
to blameless and spotless and open the door
consecrated and cleansed liberated from sins
activated my faith denounced the darkness within
in everything that I do I hope it glorifies you
bringing the gospel to these youth letting them know that your true
I've fallen short many times but my heart is for you
I need you

I need you- in this life, in this world, in this fight,
I need you- with my wife, with your word, in the night,
I need you- with this truth that we scream all our might
I need you- we need you from the dark to the light

THESE HANDS

Written By: R. WILSON

Chorus
With These Hands purify me, from this Flesh,
With this Breath speak to Me, with all my life left,
I wanna reflect all your attributes, in a World that lacks the Truth,
I'm asking you, now with the strength in these Hands
Verse 1
With every grasp of breath in my chest within my soul
I'm your vessel ready to reach your people these days are evil we need you
There chasing that mighty dollar they need you mighty Father
Increasing their riches, and they hate the Word of Prophecy
but greed and envy, decreases life expectancy
and as the World is turning little children give up on living
I cant sit back and watch this generation be a victim
I know you hand picked em to be a Holy Nation
So i gotta hit em hit em! Get them captives out of prison
they looking for change, but getting religion turning to hypocrites
Confusing that condemnation for conviction riotous living
so I'm reaching these prodigals that fall in the cracks of the mammon system
(with these Hands) the sick they shall recover (with these hands) the blind they shall see
the leper the beggar, were healed by the word and now it dwells in me
so i gotta die daily, fall to knees withstand,
and cover my wife and Kids in Prayer with These Hands
Chorus
With These Hands purify me, from this Flesh,
With this Breath speak to Me, with all my life left,
I wanna reflect all your attributes, in a World that lacks the Truth,
I'm asking you, now with the strength in these Hands
Verse 2
With These Hands Imma grip this Mic speak Life,
to a World that would rather shoot, tell lies to the Youth but Imma live for Christ
so dark but I ride for the Light, in the Night with their Hands on the wheel,
cause these young Men are hitting their Teens, and getting their Caps Peeled,
Young Girls should never need a Pap smear, burned up from Physical attraction
Rapping for the Youth on the Rez, that are living Critical now its time for some action,
Lord Jesus give me strength, to know your width and length,
to know your height and depth, crucify this weak flesh,
give back to the Communities, help the Urban Youth achieve,
let em know they got Destiny, these streets keep giving them false dreams,
It's like they gave up hope and, there leaning on a rope and,
they would rather let go of life than fight the fight of Faith we know but,
thats why to die is gain, and to live in Jesus Name,
with These Hands we can reach a Generation desensitized to Inner pain
Its bigger than entertainment, way bigger than CD sales,
the Great Commission to make Disciples, saving souls from Hell
Chorus
With These Hands purify me, from this Flesh,
With this Breath speak to Me, with all my life left,
I wanna reflect all your attributes, in a World that lacks the Truth,
I'm asking you, now with the strength in these Hands

WHO I AM

WHO I AM
Written by: R. Wilson B. Foster
Chorus
Save me Lord from who i am
Without You
Save me Lord from who i am
Without You
I know that You can hear,
When my voice is calling,
I know that You are there,
When my life is falling,
Please save me from myself,
Cause I need Your mercy,
Playing the cards I've dealt
Verse 1
I watch the cities burn, the World it turns on its axes,
The stars balance in the heavens, the Universe is matchless,
The Sun shines, the Moon reflect its so miraculous,
But Humanity is flawed, we missed the beauty pageant,
Instead we put our trust in Oil, Gold and precious Metals,
Poppy seed scattered abroad a field of Rose petals,
we went from sticky green to crystallized, hear the screams,
We fight to stay awake, to stay away from sleepless dreams,
It seams through the pores Men who faded, feeling jaded,
Our only strategy for poverty, stay Medicated,
and keeping it real today, is overstated, underrated,
Cause the truth is that my life needs to be vacated,
Save me from the man i am without You , i need Your help,
Because without Your Grace I'm nothing, i don't trust myself,
I promise if You do I'll never drink or smoke again,
save me from myself i wanna be Born again
Chorus
Save me Lord from who i am
Without You
Save me Lord from who i am
Without You
I know that You can hear,
When my voice is calling,
I know that You are there,
When my life is falling,
Please save me from myself,
Cause I need Your mercy,
Playing the cards I've dealt
Verse 2
A menace to myself lock me up and hide the key,
I've hurt so many my own family keeps away from me,
And God I'm willing, its the inner man my greatest battle,
its in myself I'm so guilty just bang the gavel,
within my tabernacle, I've defiled the temple,
I cant trust mysef no more can it be so simple,
Can it be rekindled, the flame burning with life,
Came crashing down like cymbals please revive my life,
Because its so Dark and its so cold,
I'm tired of sleeping in the Park with the same clothes,
Save me from the man i am without your name those,
Same foes that used to be friends real close,
there all dealing with the same lows with no hope,
Save me from myself I'm sliding down a steep slope,
Please let me get a glimpse of that rainbow,
so i can see the Son again and watch the storm go
Chorus
Save me Lord from who i am
Without You
Save me Lord from who i am
Without You
I know that You can hear,
When my voice is calling,
I know that You are there,
When my life is falling,
Please save me from myself,
Cause I need Your mercy,
Playing the cards I've dealt

CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME,
CAN ANYBODY FEEL MY PAIN (VOICELESS)

CAUSE I'M VOICELESS, IM SO VOICELESS,

I NEED SOMEONE TO SHOW ME THEY CARE,
TO SHOW ME LOVE THAT I FEEL AINT THERE,

VERSE 2 (FRESH IE)

I BEEN YOUR SOURCE THE REASON YOUR BREATHING
THAT STILL VOICE IN THIS SEASON IM HEALING BELIEVE ME
IM LISTENING TO YOUR CRY BOTTLED YOUR TEARS
HEARD ALL YOUR IF ANDS AND WHY'S AND IF I COULD FLY'S
AND YES I KNOW YOUR STRUGGLES THE THORN IN YOUR SIDE
WAS BORN IN REJECTION AND THROWN TO DEMISE
BUT IM IN CONTROL, I GOT THE WORLD IN MY HANDS
AND MY SON PAID THE DEBT FOR YOUR SOUL
I WEPT ON A SCROLL STOOPED IN THE SAND
WROTE MY DAUGHTER A LOVE LETTER REBUKED THE DEMAND
OF LOVE LUST LIES AND THE EMPTINESS INSIDE
IN PLACE OF THE VOID LET MY GRACE FILL YOUR LIFE
FORGIVE THEM THE ONES WHO STOLE YOUR INNOCENCE
AND LEFT YOU LYING IN A BED OF SIN AGAIN
I LOVE YOU FALL IN MY ARMS I'LL HOLD YOU TIGHT
IM YOUR ADVOCATE THAT STILL SMALL VOICE IN THE NIGHT
I HEAR YOU

PRE CHORUS
CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME,
CAN ANYBODY FEEL MY PAIN (VOICELESS)

CHORUS

I NEED SOMEONE TO SHOW ME THEY CARE,
TO SHOW ME LOVE THAT I FEEL AINT THERE,
TO BRING ME HOPE AND SOME INSPIRATION,
CAUSE I'M VOICELESS, IM SO VOICELESS,

I NEED SOMEONE TO SHOW ME THEY CARE,
TO SHOW ME LOVE THAT I FEEL AINT THERE,
TO BRING ME HOPE AND SOME INSPIRATION,
CAUSE I'M VOICELESS, IM SO VOICELESS,
