Detroit rapper Fowl is set to take the hip-hop world by storm as he releases the second and final single off his upcoming EP ‘Lawless.’
From freestyling in his dorm freshman year at Michigan State, to winning Eminem’s “Road To 8 Mile” Emcee Competition, Fowl marked up a very reputable beginning to his rap career. Since moving out to L.A, he’s worked with producers such as Alchemist, and Nate Fox just to name a few. We caught up with Fowl real quick to get an inside scoop om his upcoming project.
Q: How do you feel you fit into the current state of hip hop?
A: I see myself as a sonic leader. Musically, things are moving in the direction where it’s about how it feels, over how it actually sounds. In regards to composition and the classic “concept” of skill, I just want to create music that feels like “hey, this sounds good.” I take myself as a technician of jams; a songwriting-strategist.
Q: What can we expect from Lawless?
A: You can expect heat man. Great concepts, successfully conveyed in a funky way. Me chillin witchu and explaining the way I feel about the shit going on around me and everybody we see.
Q: Since you’ve moved to LA, how has your sound or the type of music you make been effected?
A: In my maturation throughout life- the subject matter of my music has progressed, explicitly moreso. Through experiences and pursuit of my ambitions, I’m always letting people know exactly who I am and how I think.
On my artistic journey, being in California allowed me to work with like-minded individuals who’ve been closer to where I aspire to be. I’d lie if I said California doesn’t feel closer to the Grammy’s than Detroit.
