Figgy Baby’s project is a coming-of-age story about brown boys finding their way in a Trump world. Growing up ambiguously brown and lacking a supportive community it was hard to know how to claim myself in the face of racist public school teachers, suspicious police and an immigrant father. This album is the culmination of all those experiences.
The 13-track album creates an upbeat sound, complimented with moments of intimacy. It’s a classic boom bap project backed by a live drummer and jazz band with contemporary neo-soul production.
