Delivering one of the most infectiously melodic hip hop alternatives this month, F4lBruce brings together rhythmic bars, a bass-led immersive soundscape, and a varied flow complete with a recognisable vocal tone to really draw listeners in.
From the outset, Above Da Rim lets its hook envelop its audience. The track has a strong groove, and F4LBruce’ vocal on top of this has a Lil Baby kind of grit and melodic soul about it.
At the same time as the stylistic aspects appealing with ease, Above Da Rim also injects a compelling story into the scene. This varied flow meanders through the details, impressing for the artist’s rhythm and versatility, as well as intriguing for the emotional changes in volume and general delivery. Slowly but surely you get the poetic intensity of the lyrics, which aim high and hit the mark – every bar and line feeling fresh; including those of the hook.
An easily addictive new track, with talent at its core but professionalism and clever, likable song-writing alongside of this. Getting the chemistry just right in contemporary hip hop and trap.
