Delving deeply into life, love, and loss, FrM-Anthony's 'Misfit Island' establishes him as a storyteller of the highest caliber, capable of using hip-hop to explore the darkest parts of the human psyche and emerge stronger.
FrM-Anthony is an artist who proudly wears his heart on his sleeve. On the first track of his stunning album, he ruminates over a lost loved one, translating his despair into deeply moving lyricism. That's only the beginning, as he explores some of his darkest feelings on the ensuing ten tracks.
From the drama of 'November' to the aggressive, confrontational 'Red Pill,' each of these tracks is a world in and of itself - a story full of complex characters struggling to do the right thing.
On album highlight 'Tony's Heartbreak,' Anthony's voice takes center stage over a sparse and unsettling beat. Ultimately, it is a song about taking control of your destiny and leaving behind anyone who wants to hold you back. It is one of the most powerful tracks you will hear this year.
Ending with the optimistic 'Be Blessed Love,' Anthony ultimately finds hope amidst his many troubles. This album is intricately written and contains many layers, making it an extremely rewarding listen. Recommended for hip-hop fans everywhere.
