It’s the facial expressions. He’s always making some face that just throws me off from fully taking him seriously. The facial expressions & the poses he strikes (“Strike a pose, Vogue!“) are always sus and causing me to silently question myself, like I lose some macho for admitting that the music is appealing.
Otherwise, Fonsworth stands above the majority of the other artists on the G.O.O.D. label when it comes to song structure, concept & his delivery. It’s as if he’s got the formula under wraps, written on a scribbled on, crumpled sheet of paper that he keeps stashed in his blazer’s inside pocket. He calls up a collaborator (this time it’s Anthony Hamilton), finds a beat (a synthesized chune this go) and just makes winners. Nothing too heavy, nor too sappy. Just music that makes you want to drop the windows & ride.
I think Kanye shelves shit like C.O.L.O.U.R.S. and SA-RA projects because both crap all over his so-called arrogance, oozing way more confident cool & being able to convey that into their music with ease. No ghostblogging or media antics neccessary.
