“There’s something about coming up short, make you reach higher heights.”
Femdot has a great ability at writing, delivery, and storytelling. He showcases all of that on “Alright” the first single from his forthcoming LP, Delacreme 2, which Closed Sessions is releasing this summer.
I think the song and video both showcase Femdot’s best qualities, from the clever lyricism and delivery to the way he sticks to a theme behind the record. It’s a proper setup for the new album, and gives the listener context for who he is and what he’s about.
I also think that the video brings up memories of some early 90’s classic rap videos, paying homage but not biting or using a crutch of nostalgia. Fem is an emcee I’ve seen develop over the last 5 or 6 years since he was 15 or 16 years old and he was sending me music for posting on this blog the first time I was running tings.
I’m really excited to have him as part of Closed Sessions and work with him to put out what will be a very important project in the context of his career. The video is above, and the song is available on your streaming platform of choice right here.
