Rapper Young Foe dispenses with bling and boasting and gets to the meat of the matter, namely how a mad amount of scepticism is needed to combat the B.S. that’s in our faces on a daily basis. On “Tell-A-Vision” the rapper drops a captivating cascade of Biblical imagery on us in a screed about the lies and deception perpetuated on our screens. The artist’s urgent, alarmist flow stays strong on “Encrypted,” rising atop a stark, effective track that helps convey a haunting nihilistic worldview. He changes it up with the jazz/gospel/spirituals vibe of “Justified,” which dramatizes the street-corner sex trade and its compromising life choices. We can envision Foe’s flows on a film or GTA videogame soundtrack.
