Shout out to the underdogs in the game who are from an unrecognized hood and are making it on pure raw talent, no gimmicks; because there aren’t many well-known rappers from Fresno. As an independent hip-hop artist being compared to Nas, you’d have to have dope lyrical skills to live up to the hype and Fashawn seems to be doing it well. Fashawn is making a name for himself by touring and winning people over city by city. For those that have taken the time out to watch him perform and listen to his lyricism, many would say that he’s hard to ignore. His creativity and flow makes him a powerful contender as one of the most anticipated rappers in the game. It’s no wonder he was named The Phenom by a local California DJ.
In an interview with Parlé Magazine, Fashawn’s advice to for upcoming artists: “Make sure you’re making the kind of music you want to make. Work hard and keep a strong team around you and you’ll go far.”
