Odd Future member Hodgy is ready to separate himself from the collective and be the next to establish himself as an artist to pay attention to on his own merits. He’s gearing up to drop his solo debut Fireplace: TheNotTheOtherSide in a little over a week. We’ve already heard the lead single “Barbell,” and today he hits us with the Busta Rhymes-assisted “Final Hour.” Both rappers spit rapidfire flows with crazy rhyme schemes over jazz-inflected Amy Winehouse-core produced by 88 Keys. Hodgy has been killing features here and there for years, so it’s no surprise that he went bar-for-bar with Bus-A-Bus. This album is shaping up to be something special very quickly. Check out “Final Hour” below.
Fireplace: TheNotTheOtherSide is out 12/9 on Columbia. Pre-order it here.
