Why Fi – Elysium (New EP)

You may be caught up in listening to Isaiah Rashad‘s new album, but we have another GREAT hip hop release on our hands in the form of Why Fi’s recent Elysium EP. Not only that, Isaiah and Why Fi are pretty similar artists in their beat selection, enjoyment of horns, flow and delivery. Fi even harmonizes on his tracks including my favorite Beauty with a beautiful (pun intended) instrumental from Kamal Akeem.You’ll hear Why Fi’s declaration that he has no problem giving up anything for his music career; and his positivity of the struggles he has gone through.

Fall Thru is another enjoyable track, with odes to a woman that can give him some “good love.” There is a song for everyone on Elysium and that is due to Fi’s ability to make a song sound good no matter the topic.
