I first met Otis Clapp at the start of the summer at a BBQ in The Bronx. Although he told me a little bit about his music, a few artists we were mutual friends with told me a lot more. For me, this is a telltale sign that I need to keep an ear out for someone. When Otis Clapp’s album, Welcome II Nowhere, dropped I put it in my CD player and was extremely impressed by what I heard. When I sat down with him the other day for an interview, my jaw dropped at some of his very real life stories. A true survivor, Otis Clapp opened up about his extremely rough past, and how it affects him in the present. He also laid out the road map for how we can all get a first class trip to our own personal Nowhere. Before making that journey, however, I received a tour of his Nowhere.
After going through a lazy month, I've been hearing folks who's looking for the new FMF to no avail. My apoligies to all as FMF is now back like baked crack! (Oh, you ain't heard? The fat-free white is what's in style now!)
Access Immortal :: Last Summer Part 2 The EP
[Starting FMF back off is Access Immortal with his new FreeP that serves as a preview for his new album "Last Summer In Brooklyn 2" coming out at the end of 2010.]
[For the fans of Max B. and coke rap, French Montana gives y'all all the audio white you need. This mixtape features guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Three 6 Mafia, Akon, Cee-Lo, and more.] http://usershare.net/vg3zxrq61q17
J. Monday :: The Sequel
[Not too sure what's the Sequel is, but after hearing couple of joints on this mixtape, I'm convinced that this serves as a prequel of good music to come.]
[Every once in a while, you'll get music that makes you be like, "What is this I'm listening to?" That's my impression hearing The Trainspotters, but it's in a good way. Dope beats and rhymes that came out of nowhere, but it's all worth the /l.]
