Fathom 9 always comes in with the niceness, so open your ears for ‘Listen’. His lyrics are laced over a smooth, pulsing beat, and typically of him there’s no hook, just raw poetry and flow. He considers himself an MC first and beatsmith second and you can hear why, I feel; he’s playful with the words. It’s a free download but I’d also encourage you to go peep the rest of his Soundcloud because he’s put out quite a few. He also says this is a ‘repost’ but I haven’t heard it before (nor can I find any trace of it anywhere) and it sounds fresh so I’ll just throw it out there.

Have a read through of previous Fathom 9 features on WIB.
