Still performing all over the country, and finishing their 4th album 'VIVA Set Free' which they recorded in their own ORANGE GROVE STUDIOS, this is the album that fall's in the lap of the president of SCREAMING GIANT RECORDS.

They also did their first video on film for the single the 'ANTHEM' which has been the number 1 Christian rap video in the world for over three years now. After parting ways with S.G.R in 2000, Set Free decides to do it straight independent. At least that was until they met the future NFL hall of fame quarterback Randall Cunningham. Backstage at one of their show's, Randall Cunningham invited Set Free to his private studio in Las Vegas as soon as his season ended with the Baltimore Ravens. 2002-? Sure enough Randall Cunningham came through on his word, and as soon as the season was over, that's when Set Free got started. After recording just one song at his 'STUDIO 7' he was sold, and decided that Set Free do there entire album at his spot. Three months later the newest Set Free album 'NOT AGAIN' was finished. Since then Set Free has traveled the world. Being the first hip hop group ever invited to do a tour especially for the US Military, in a number of countries throughout Eastern Europe. Set Free even did their duty during our previous war between Iraq in the middle of march 03. Getting invited to places like Spain, Australia, China, and many other spots across the globe. Set Free has had more then enough on their plate. Still making new videos, and new music all year around, they continue to out do themselves over and over again.
