Hodgy is set to be the next member of Odd Future to establish himself as an individual force to be reckoned with. His solo debut Fireplace: TheNotTheOtherSide dropped today, and dude went absolutely nuts with his opportunity to define himself as an artist. We’ve already heard “Barbell” and “Final Hour,” and both of those contained plenty of dexterous introspection and richness in personality, but the entire album is brimming with both of those things. Hodgy spits skillful bars over beats that mix the space funk of Flying Lotus, Soulquarian vibes, jazz, and intricate trap. He shouldn’t just be that dude from Odd Future once people give this album a listen. Check it out below.
Fireplace: TheNotTheOtherSide is out now on Columbia.
