Fluent - Carolinafornia Nightmare (Album)
Bicoastal Rapper Proves That He Can't Be Slept on With Latest Full Length LP
"With this tape, I delved into different areas of my skill set to show my audience what I"m fully capable of when it comes to the art of songwriting,"
His pure talents as a rapper are perhaps most apparent on "Wave," his favorite track on the album. "It reminds me of where I came from originally, and musically with that bar-for-bar braggadocio and punchline flow," he says of the banger produced by North Carolina beatsmith, and Dr. Dre collaborator, D.R.U.G.S. Flu also loves "Wave" because so many people want to get hot (or "ride the wave") without putting in the necessary work. "If you want it, you better work for it," he adds.
The album's other highlights further demonstrate Flu's versatility as an artist. That goes for whether he's flexing over bangin' production on "Now You Know," examining artistic determination on "Make It," or dishing out old-school lover-man raps on "The One." And that's just a sampling of where he takes the listener on this journey through his life at the moment, which flickers between hedonism and self-awareness.
"I had fun with this one," says Fluent, "and I truly believe that this is my best work yet both creatively and sonically." If you don't take Flu's word for it, head over to the digital retailers or streaming platform of your choice and see for yourself. Carolinafornia Nightmare is now available through Supreme Regime via EMPIRE Distribution.
