Femdot. Dilla. Call him what you want, just don’t call yourself late to the party for one of Chicago’s dopest new artists. Fem definitely made his mark with his last EP, fo(u)r, which he dropped this past spring. But now he’s here to close the summer out with five new tracks packaged up as thr(we).

I heard Fem play some select offerings from thr(we). at our Red Bull Sound Select show in Denver and they immediately caught my ear. I’m about two songs in and he’s already cleverly flipped both Bobby Brown and Musiq Soulchild, so you could say I’m pretty much hooked. My early favorite is for sure “Get Rich Forever,” but I already told you that. There’s something very special here, something I highly suggest you don’t overlook. Heed my words.

thr(we). includes production by Mike Wavvs, D. Phelps, Matt Hines and Jabari Rayford, with all songs mixed and mastered by Jabari Rayford at Soundscape Studios.

Who better equipped with a steady hand other than Jerry Production to help assist with the visuals for the Almighty Ro? Get stitched up below.

Some very real rap, from an artist who really has my attention right now: Panamera P. P describes life in Chicago in a way I haven’t heard many approach or articulate. His outlook is delivered differently, and you can see that for yourself in the “Real Rap” video below. It shows P in his neighborhood, buying ice cream for the children, and pontificating about the risk an reward of the streets. What’s your opportunity cost?

New album due out later this year. Get the real below.
