FLEE first entered my library early this Summer with his hits “NICKI” and “HUNNIBUN,” which got me hooked on the unique Queens-bred artist. Now, he’s recently released his much-awaited project GHOST, which hosts a variety of both sound and style, but taking advantage of the whisper-rap that has seemingly taken his name to new heights as he’s surpassed 430K monthly listeners on Spotify.
Hard-hitting production by Surf Gang’s Evil Giane, Snapz, MexikoDro, & NatCarlos set FLEE up for success and include some incredible samples of Notorious B.I.G. and Sade. Collaborations with ATL upcoming star Tony Shhnow and Cash Cobain only amplify the project’s impact and reach.
The lyrics are clever and well-tested, while the hooks do exactly what they’re supposed to, engaging the audience from top-to-bottom. FLEE is buzzing, being cosigned by Brent Faiyaz, being named one of BET’s #OnTheVerge artists, and seeing the hard work of creating a 16-song project come to fruition. It’s only up from here, and I can’t wait to see how the album does and how FLEE continues to grow.
My favorite tracks:
