Fekky ‘El Clasico’ album review

Fekky drops his album ‘El Clasico’ which has been anticipated by many of his fans. Fekky is known for putting a show on and has been credited for his energy on stage. The problem with this album is that without hearing the music live it’s hard to fully appreciate the album.

Firstly, we hear Fekky over a tropical sounding beat with a gritty edge in ‘Say No More’. Fekky exposes rappers that “wanna act tough on the grime, then when you see them on road they don’t say it no more” his arrogance on the track is no different to what we are used to hearing.

‘Mad Ting, Sad Ting’ uses a nice loop melody throughout the song, however the content doesn’t really reveal anything other than generic drug talk from Fekky. The chorus is not given much thought, repeating the title of the track. Section Boyz add energy and make up for Fekky’s content and lack of flow.

‘Real ones’ was the first song that really stood out on the project. This is likely to be because we are hearing a different type of Fekky, which was what the album was crying out for. Fekky opens up about his friendships in the game and emphasises how loyalty is an important factor. “We ain’t never been friends, so why you calling my phone bro” illustrates the struggle when gaining fame, people seem to appear out of nowhere after a bit of success.

‘Call me again’ had the potential of being a great track however the lack of content is disappointing. After listening to the song several times, I still struggle to understand the concept of the song, other than that we shouldn’t call Fekky again. Ghetts flows quite well on the beat but we are left unfulfilled as his bars are below standard.

The beat on ‘Avirex’, like throughout the album, was high quality, and the hook by Neutrino gets catchier the more you listen. Fekky reflects on his past referring to pirate radio and Lethal Bizzle’s Pow. Chip delivers, as he energises the track and flows well on the garage instrumental and we are reminded that Chip can’t run out of bars.

‘Broke n Famous’ is another track that stood out on this album. This may be because of the production and the change of the vibe. Fekky addresses his haters and asks what people want from him, now that he has finally made it.

It’s not surprising that ‘Way too much’ was a hit single as having Skepta as a feature is always guaranteed to gain attention. The hook from Skepta is catchy and it is a song that would sure to go off in a club.

The three quality features at the end of the album is what the album needed as the songs were beginning to sound repetitive. In “Gossip” Giggs states “they call me a rap dad, I’m a mascot”. His well-known voice and flow adds to the song and offers something different, although nothing stands out on this track in particular. The other feature included Shakka who can usually make an average track very good. However, this time Shakka’s hook wasn’t that strong but he did add a bit of substance to the track. Incidentally, this was Fekky’s wifey tune which didn’t really translate well to his audience.

Although some songs were lacking substance, ‘Real Talk’ and ‘Broke n Famous’ gave glimpses that Fekky will have more to offer as an artist in the future. The range of quality beats and key features both contributed to a satisfactory album. As for the other tracks that may be considered mediocre, they are sure to work on stage as Fekky is known for being electric when performing. But I am not convinced this is the classic he was looking for, I’d be more inclined to say that is a satisfactory album.
