Sure, this is Otis Clapp's first feature on our pages. But, with a strong flow and the help of a Booth regular, he more than makes up for a lack of Booth experience on video single Fiona. Setting the mood on this brash, charismatic cut are co-producers Ricky Vaughn and Millz, who tuck a sped-up vocal sample into a brisk, handclap-heavy rhythm section. The beat's boldness perfectly matches Otis's energetic, forceful flow and braggadocious lyricism. His effrontery is rivaled only by that of his guest, Booth regular YC the Cynic. Adding a dash of pop/R&B into the mix, Devo D tops the record off with a smooth, intoxicating sung outro. Fiona is the third single off Clapp's #ATB LP, dropping digitally later today.
