There is nothing more flattering than hearing an artist whose talent makes you wonder, “Who’s on that track?” This is the highest compliment an artist can receive because it means their talent has caught the attention of someone who wants to listen, but also wants to share it with another hundred people. Since there are so many songs uploaded to so many platforms that are accessible worldwide, there is a lot of competition today. When an artist combines talent with emotion, the listener gets a front row seat to a masterpiece. This is the case for DMV artist Hailstackz and FRQNZY, who have released their debut track “4 The World”.
Throughout the song, Frqnzy takes the listener through the raw emotions that he experiences as he reflects on the toxic energy that has been absorbed from past relationships, and he asks the listener if there is a time to release such an individual and start moving forward on his or her own journey. Many people face this challenge every day, but lack the courage to face their emotions or to face their partner when facing their emotions. FRQNZY’s voice is perfectly balanced by Hailstackz’s melody and chorus; in addition, hailstackz raps a second verse in which he discusses how couples continue to stay together despite knowing what is wrong together.
It is one thing to be able to generate large amounts of music, but it is another to orchestrate that music into something truly unique. Their upcoming EP, “BiPolar Love”, will be accompanied by a global tour. The dates will include both in-state and out-of-state stops, including performances in Europe, the United Kingdom, Africa and Canada. On his new EP, he offers listeners an array of chart toppers that are sure to give them a ride of a lifetime. I am excited to see “4 the World” setting new standards for dope artists, and we are looking forward to seeing the torch carried by these artists, who are pushing the envelope of what we consider “dope content.” HipHop’s legacy will only grow if these types of artists continue to speak their truth.
