BED has been called a "contemporary classic," and a "master piece," and was voted best album of the year by many blogs and magazines. BED, is part of a series of limited edition vinyl-only releases from Detroit artists on sUPERIORbelly Records.
"Debut masterpiece! Fre$h is a perverse concoction of sound tannins that are indigenous to that of the Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang Clan, and Doug E. Fresh; shaken, poured and then served with a Beck garnish to give a sophisticated layer of noise knowledge."
-- SOUNDCHECK MUSIC
“8 OUT OF 10, Stellar rhymes, retro beats, and off-kilter arrangements. Fre$h's sense of humor, peculiar turns of phrase, inclusion of well-placed samples, as well as a few exceptional guest rappers raises the album a cut above much of what currently passes for fashionable hip-hop these days. BED is one of the better hip-hop releases to come along in quite some time, combining the aggressive swagger of retro-sounding rap with more experimental and modern touches that give the entire record a thoroughly unique sound."
-- SYMBIOTIC REVIEWS
"There is something intrinsically charming about Beverly Fre$h. Maybe it's because his name is Beverly or his love for neon green beverages. These are the questions that keep me up at night."
