Digging deep into the concept of morals, CSpence balances engaging rhythms and rising intensity with a clear level of direction and purpose.
From the outside, Fact Or Fiction hits like an impressive and smooth-flowing contemporary hip hop track. A likable anthem that grows more enjoyable with each changing section – a varied flow, a switch from rap to melody, another new melody after that. What you also find within though, when you pay enough attention, is an artist with genuinely refreshing bars.
This whole track utilizes both theme and language to build something consistently relevant and interesting – whilst also holding onto that necessary style and confidence to keep it rooted amidst today’s sound.
CSpence has impressed in the past and this track marks a further climb higher up that ladder. Even the beat presents just enough character and alternative vibes to appeal on a broader level – the synths and chord progression appear mildly retro, but not so much so as to isolate the whole experience. On the contrary, this fits well where it is, and CSpence is undoubtedly one to watch out for over the coming months and years. Smart lyricism is alive and well.
