Is it just me, or has the Booth been lacking a certain… dapperness of late? Oh, we haven’t featured any Fonzworth Bentley-related content in almost a year? That explains it. Here to rectify the situation is the nattily-dressed gentleman himself, with a brand new single of his long-awaited debut album-turned-mixtape, C.O.L.O.U.R.S. On Believe It, Bentley looks back upon his journey as a musician, compressing a memoir’s worth of material into three rapped verses. Flowing over a rolling breakbeat suffused with mellow synth chords courtesy of Alex (Don Cheegro) Chiger, Fonz charts his growth through a series of vignettes, detailing his middle-school struggles to learn the violin, his paternally-spurred stint in an MBA program, and finally a recent confrontation with his own mortality. The moral? With a little faith, you can weather any storm. And by way of happy coincidence, Faith herself – R&B singer Faith Evans, that is – makes a guest appearance, lacing the joint with her radiant hook vocals. So, how ‘bout it: are you craving more colorful tunes from hip-hop’s most foppish dandy? Fonz’ debut street album is set to drop April 22 (Good Friday), coinciding with the online debut of Kanye‘s G.O.O.D. Friday SXSW showcase.
