FOREVER ANTi PoP is currently enjoying sweet reviews for the release of his debut EP Finessin' The Rhythm. The young rapper is marrying all the elements of his formative years to deliver a sound that sits in, and then plays with genre.
Born in Tallahassee, FL, FOREVER ANTi PoP moved to Atlanta to live with his grandmother when he was 10 years old. She introduced the sounds of Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson and bought him his first microphone. As his musical tastes evolved to include Young Jeezy and Kanye West, as well as hometown heroes like Plies, the precocious youngster began writing and producing music of his own.
Finessin' The Rhythm is a solid EP that feels bigger than it's slight number of tracks. The beats are bold, the rhymes are real and there's a very real sense that the artist is heading for big things. ARTISTdirect caught up with FOREVER ANTi PoP to get some insight into the tracks that shaped his sounds and so informed his approach to craft.
