Is Fearce Vill about to wrap his music career up? Not so fast. The song is about a family member and thus it’s more personal than the celebration of a career, and he’d like for you to look and listen. The song is called “Final Goodbye”, which was put together by producer BeanOne. The visuals come courtesy of director Jonathan Parrot. Also to see and hear is Fearce Vill’s journey on the tour with Grieves, head there if you can as both represent love for the 206.
Grynch is back with an all new album, eleven new songs plus an remix and he’s calling it Street Lights. If you know how he is, you know the man is capable of dropping nicely in a manner that requires for you to listen, and then to listen to it a few times again. The new one features appearances from Slug of Atmosphere, Wizdom, Mario Sweet, Kokane, Bambu, and more, along with productions from Jake One, D-Sane, Justo (The Physics), BeanOne, and… just get the album and find out.

From Dyme Def comes Fearce Vill, offering up the very nice “Way Of Life” with the “Amen Brother” 45 placed on 33 so it can sound like N.W.A’s “Straight Outta Compton”, but this is a new vibe for a new era. Get used to it.
When the song fades out at about 3:45, you’ll see a second track by someone new: Romaro Franceswa. His “Prodigy” track is a representation of the Yuk The World collective, so you get a 2-in-1 deal, with both tracks being produced by BeanOne.
Don’t have any idea on what you’ll be this Halloween? You may want to enter the white room and put on an image of a Minaj variety. Or at least you can do that but if that’s not what you want, best to just listen to this track by Fearce and BeanOne, who look at how things are today and say “That Ain’t Hip-Hop???”. It’s not about keeping it real, or realness vs. fake hip-hop. If it’s hip-hop, you should know it by default, period. Seattle hip-hop has been rising quite a bit in the last few years, especially in 2012, and one must be patient to see what will happen in 2013.
With Nas baving the #1 album on the U.S. charts with Life Is Good, many continue to take influence from his debut album, 1994’s Illmatic. BeanOne decided to put together a remix of “One Love”, having Fearce drop some new lyrics and here it is, a song that is sure to make Nas quite happy.
“I Want It All” is a phrase that all of us have either said or thought many times over. It may have started during childhood, when we realized that our parents want us to have one or two items, but it is possible to have more. Then we grow up, and realize with hard work and effort, more can be achieved.
The same can be said about hip-hop and how it started out as being with a “corner store” vibe to something that is very much worldwide. Fearce and BeanOne touch on this by riding on their bicycles down the street to show how that feeling for all goes back from youth to what it is for one and all today.
The song is from the There Goes The Neighborhood album which you can listen to in full by clicking the player below. You can also download it for free by clicking here.
