Getting a strong MF Doom vibe from this next feature, so I reckon you'll seriously love this.

Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Fly Anakin is a rapper who has earned high praise from legends like Madlib and has been called "one of the illest MCs." The fact that he has previously collaborated with Freddie Gibbs is enough of a reason to pay attention to what he has to say. Is also the co-founder of the Mutant Academy, a rap collective based in Richmond.

Today's trippy soundtrack, "Affirmations", is taken from Frank's new album Skinemaxxx (Side A) via Lex Records and features Pink Siifu who is well-known in our feed by now. The release is the kick-off of a two-part project produced in conjunction with Mutant Academy's Foisey, which represents a departure in style from Fly Anakin's highly-praised debut studio album Frank from the previous year (listen below).

The beat is the dopest slow groove vibe wrapped around soulfully chopped vocals. The perfect stage for Fly Anakin and Pink Siifu's spot-on delivery.
