Growing up in a talented musical family meant that FadeTheBlackk was always surrounded by different forms of music. He developed his musical tastes and interests, while growing up in the Bronx, where he experimented with various music genres, all of which have had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey has taken. Although traditional Hip Hop music is where his roots lie, he does not restrict himself to this genre, and includes B*Star, Bob Marley, JamesxScott, John Legend and Stevie Wonder as his biggest influences.
FadeTheBlackk beat and feature selection is stellar, and his latest track hot out of the oven, “Figure It Out” ft. b*star produced by Truey Lewis (Da Hoolegunz) is no exception. The production provides an appropriately imperious backdrop for FadeTheBlackk’s introspective bars and the swagger-soaked guest rhymes by b*star. Once you feel this luxuriant banger you’ll be searching for more high-rolling material in FadeTheBlackk’s catalog.
The song features all the bells and whistles you’d imagine, from an effects-filled melodic vocal to a boisterous piano, which is perfectly suited to both counterbalance FadeTheBlackk nonchalant approach and accentuate b*star’s ever-changing, eccentric flow.
The beat on “Figure It Out” bangs, the hook is on-point, and FadeTheBlackk flexes. The track stands to elevate his game and establish him as a distinctive rap persona. Over and above his lyrical skills he has a unique sound and very strong song structure to this track.
All in all, this sounds like some of FadeTheBlackk best work yet. If this is any indication of the direction he’s going take on any future album or mixtape then the hype will be real. What FadeTheBlackk supplies in raw lyricism, he more than doubles-up in presence and charisma. His narrative is both observant and confrontational.
The single shows how much FadeTheBlackk has evolved since his debut single “Be Ok”. This track is exactly what’s missing in this current era – a catchy radio-ready song with excellent lyrics – as there are only a select few who can do it and FadeTheBlackk is without question one of them.
FadeTheBlackk has obviously been working hard in diversifying his talents and getting ready to appeal to an overall bigger audience through more than just underground music. And his powerful ‘attitude-and-technique’ style is strong enough to get him off the ground and running. Keep an eye out for FadeTheBlackk in the near future!
