UFO FEV’s ‘Abduction’ bound to make the traditional rap fans sentimental post holidays


Without question, ‘Wraith’, a previously released record with Kent Jones and Fat Joe is a standout, but it isn’t alone. Stream the impressive body of music by one of New York City’s legends in the making, UFO FEV, below.

Wasting absolutely no time, as usual, New York’s own UFO FEV spreads the gift of new music with his fans. Seventeen tracks including creative skits and production from Illa Da Producer, BackPack Beatz and more, the proficient recording artist raps about being accountable for his wins and losses, not sleeping since the birth of his daughter, and more. Which records do I like most? Before I answer that probable apt question, you should know that I was present for the creation of some of these songs. I consider myself blessed.

From the start of larger-than-life sampled production like ‘Dreams’ with Rob Markman; produced by Ryce&B33nz, the subtle in comparison yet beautiful ‘Melancholy’ with Eliki; produced by No Name the Producer, and ‘Flippin’ Coke’ produced by Street Runner, the precision and intent of his words and the attractive beats capture me.

If you love the kind of music influenced by early and mid-nineties Hip-Hop by our icons, you may find ‘On the Daily’ and ‘Verbal Intercourse’ with Red Inf to have playback value. If you’ve ever visited anyone in prison or have loved ones serving time, there’s a record (‘Paranoia’ with Racks; Produced by Berto Isiiah) on there for you.

On an ending note based on the progression I’ve seen with my naked eyes, I believe FEV will manifest the cranberry Porsche he wants—sooner than later. Listen to ‘Abduction (The Mixtape)’ and stay tuned for more releases and live shows in 2019 from the Manhattan-bred talent.
