First off, I’m going to say that merch really does help spread word of an artist. I’m in Richmond, Virginia for the summer, where I remember seeing Fordson Labs t-shirts on certain occasions. I search it up, and next thing I know I’ve found a new hip-hop collective from the RVA.
Last week, about two weeks after discovering them, they release a new project called the “Roots EP”. The EP features some self-production from The Cartier (one of the members, the other is King Cole), as well as instrumentals from names like Felly, IAMNOBODI, 20YSL.
This easygoing EP from a group who just graduated high school is worth checking out, and should have you being on the lookout for more from them in the future. Give it a listen above.
