Daetrius Craig - FNTG

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: DAEtrius
  • Track: FNTG
  • Producer: EPIKH
  • Album: Percy Park 101

Famously referenced by Jesus in John 10:34, Psalm 82:6 reads, “You are 'gods'; you are all sons of the Most High.'” Booth newcomer Daetrius Craig takes the Good Book at its word on his latest single, FNTG (FromN*ggazToGods), affirming the divine nature of himself and his people. Unlike some rappers (cough, Yeezy), though, he doesn't view himself as omnipotent. Backed by EPIKH's street-ready piano loops and buzzing synth-bass, he surveys the social, cultural and economic obstacles holding black America back. In the distorted closing verse, he invokes the name of Black Power icon Marcus Garvey as he pledges to “free the Gods from mental prisons.” Kennedy Rothschild provides some intense black-and-white visuals to complement his bars. For this bracing cut and much more, cop Percy Park 101 when it drops independently in the first quarter of 2014.
