Heavy Rotation with Fashawn

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Fashawn has been one of the dopest MCs on the underground circuit for years now. And thanks to a strong co-sign by Nas and a deal with Mass Appeal Records, Fresno’s finest is in position to take his already blossoming career to another level. His new album, The Ecology (available on iTunes now go get that), puts his full range of rapping and songwriting talents exquisitely on display over perfect production by Exile, The Alchemist, DJ Khalil, Beewirks, and more (Esco makes a guest appearance on “Something to Believe In” and he executive produced the LP as well). Yup, Fashawn’s more than living up to his potential, and all the praise he’s getting right now is well-deserved, for sure.

Since we’ve been rocking with Fashawn at NahRight for a minute now (we still knock The Antidote on the reg), we figured we were overdue to tap him for our Heavy Rotation series and find out what he’s been listening to lately—so that’s what we did. And for those already on the wave, it should come to you as no surprise that his taste is impeccable. Check out five songs that Fashawn has in Heavy Rotation below.
