Some dope shit from our inbox. Chicago’s F.Stokes is a versatile rapper, with a manner ranging from fast and forceful to mellow and measured. I usually prefer the latter, but in Stokes’ case the slower cadence didn’t engage me as much as the brisk delivery heard in the songs below. This rapid-fire approach works particularly well on Jo Jo Dancer, where Stokes avoids the southern-ish inflection and just exhales his verse with much intensity but little stylization.
Both songs are taken from the Baked Goods mixtape, which should be out later this month.
