Don’t worry, Chris Faust fans – the Brooklyn up-and-comer isn’t saying “Au revoir” just when he’s started to get a serious buzz going for his forthcoming, 2DopeBoyz/DJBooth.net-sponsored mixtape. In fact, you can take the title of his latest effort in precisely the opposite sense: it’s been So Long since Faust felt as motivated and ready to conquer the game as he does at this very moment. Here, freestyle series alum and reader-acclaimed beatsmith 6th Sense‘s pensive piano chords and electric-guitar flourishes set a tenacious, driven mood as the artist surveys the obstacles he’s surmounted to date and pumps himself up to achieve bigger and better things: “Anticipation’s high Chris, so don’t ever flop, success is falling nine times, so don’t ever drop” Rising R&B star Mike Maven (previously heard guesting on cuts by Nitty Scott, MC and John Public) handles hook duties, imbuing the joint with an extra dash of smooth crossover appeal. Those who want to accompany Chris Faust on the latest chapter in his journey to the top should mark their calendars for the May 17, arrival of his latest street album, the aptly-titled FAUST LP.
