Listen Up: Fashawn- The Ecology

Fashawn’s long awaited sophomore album is a total triumph. The sound centers around a rapper with unmatched potential and unbridled frustration bubbling up around Fresno’s jagged borders, a city as unrelenting as the art it produces.

Crafted by a host of producers, but still focused on the beats of long-time collaborator Exile, The Ecology isn’t cornered by geographical barriers. Of course it boasts plenty of California love, but it’s the next-level pressure of executive producer and Mass Appeal label head Nas that pushes the sound to new heights.

There will be lots of records discussed and debated here this year, but I doubt anything will move me this much. This is the first release of 2015 that hits you with one monster moment after another. You’ll run “Confess” back as soon as it’s done…bet.
