Newark, New Jersey’s FL3A is quickly becoming my favorite artists in an area loaded with them but every time he drops something new I am thoroughly impressed first and foremost by his unique, almost rabid delivery that wavers interchangeably between being playful and partly sarcastic to cold and matter-of-fact at the drop of a hat, taking you on a whirlwind of women, war, and fashion in only a few bars. His beat selection is also impermeable, continually selecting compelling and unique instrumentals that seamlessly blend the dance-y melodic elements of Jersey Club with the ubiquitous NYC-sample-drill drum patterns. FL3A is joined by Brooklyn mainstay Sosa Geek who is the latest NYC artist to join FL3A on a track after teaming up with Queens’s Big YAYA a few months ago.

I really hope that we get another FL3A track soon before the summer ends and want to hear a full length project from him before the close of 2022.

His catalog is growing and FL3A really has a unique sound within an immensely unique scene and I hope to hear even more music from him this year and will definitely be keeping a close eye on him myself. The visual was brought to life by none other than Gwop Digital who has been a cornerstone to the New Jersey scene, uplifting the artists in his area with his channel and unmatched editing abilities which perfectly matches the …
