This OneÕs For Fremont

Saturday November 23rd, FremontÕs Hip-Hop community is proud to announce ÒThis oneÕs for Fremont,Ó a showcase of FremontÕs young and musically talented artists. Fremont is a beautiful community and it has a great reputation of being, fun and friendly, but others might see it as slow and boring. However, there has been an increase in the Hip-Hop/R&B community these past few years.

Also known as D-Varg, David Vargas is a graduate of Washington High SchoolÕs class of 2004. When it comes to the Hip-Hop music scene in Fremont, he defines himself as a young pioneer.
In these past few years, the Fremont Hip-Hop community has put out several mix tape CDs, which have received great feedback. Surprisingly, the music video titled ÒIÕm From
the F-M-T,Ó received close to 50,000 YouTube views alone.

Rebuffed by the music director of the Fremont Annual Art & Wine Festival as unappealing to festival goers, Vargas says, "For our genre of music to not be considered an art, was a big letdown for us. Although we may be rappers, typically associated with negative stereotypes, we make up Fremont. We grew up in Fremont, choose to raise our families in Fremont, play active roles in the community, and contribute to the greater good of the city.Ó

Vargas adds, ÒThe music we create is awesome and weÕd love to share it with you. Although we donÕt have a venue in Fremont, we will be performing This OneÕs for Fremont in Union City.Ó
