Label: IAN Group
Boy Meets World sounds like a sequel to Exile's underground classic with Blu, Below the Heavens. The L.A. producer revisits that template by chopping up '50s and early '60s rhythm and blues, and making beats that soulfully swing, like those of "Samsonite Man" and "Our Way." Fresno, Calif., rapper Fashawn has a street-savvy yet thoughtful demeanor reminiscent of Nas, which sometimes leads to precocious songs like "Hey Young World." At his best, Fashawn is a deft rapper who can describe ghetto squalor ("The Ecology") and ponder spiritual questions ("Father").
