Nigerian poet and all-around talented artist Caleb Femi comes through with a phenomenal new project titled SLOG. Now London-based, Caleb has collaborated with various artists within the scene, and on his new project finds himself working with the likes of Manor The LateKid, AWrt, Jamilah Barry and Jordan Fc.
His ability to create vivid images and metaphors of his own experiences growing up is what makes this project an incredibly soulful and poignant one. On “Secret Life of Gs,” he is able to tell a story of his past experiences in regards to race, his mental health, political issues and belief in god. The way he is able to tell the story in such a poetic and gorgeous manner is what makes this a highlight on this project, as well as the gorgeous, trap-inspired production. On “Survivor’s Guilt,” his incredibly personal and emotive message is so moving, as he talks over this weird, glitchy beat that is accompanied by Jamilah Barry’s soothing vocals. He ponders about ways to improve the lives of youths, encouraging collaboration and fearlessness when expressing themselves through art. His vision and poetic aura is what makes SLOG an incredible project and one worth everyone’s time.
