Summary: Chill little rap

About Artist: Fashawn first gained my attention in 2009 with his album Buy Meets World. He was on the cover of XXL magazine in 2010 with J. Cole and Big Sean but his career hasn’t taken off in the same way. Aloe Blacc is a singer songwriter who is famous for I Need a Dollar, and for being the vocals on Avicii’s Wake Me Up. I have no idea who Choosey is.

About Song: This song is from Fashawn’s 2015 album The Ecology, which I would recommend listening to al the way through.

Favorite Part: I love the little bossa nova type guitar on the track with some classic sounding hip hop raps on the top.

Summary: Fashawn’s Higher learning his best mixtape.
About Artist: Fashawn is an underground rapper from Fresno California. He is one of Hip Hop’s most underrated much like his collaborators Blu, Exile and others. His debut album Boy Meets World was a great album but this tape is even better. Fashawn definitely deserves more respect for the consistently high quality music he makes.
About Song: This song is off of Higher Learning 2 which dropped yesterday and let me tell you THIS TAPE IS TIGHT. I highly recommend downloading it as it has another song that I posted on this site, Strange Fruit. This song clearly samples We Are the Champions by Queen but Phoenix did a great job on the production.
Favorite Part:
I love the production. There are a lot of good lines but my favorite might be…
“Never wanted to wear cleats,
just wanted to run the turf”
