Fresh Faces Friday: The Fresh Committee Introduces Brittney Carter
This week the artist with the most impressive display of skills on the mic is 27 year old Brittney Carter – real name, no gimmicks.
A native of Chicago’s south side, her intricate, carefully constructed rhymes, and originality are making her the Second City’s not-so best kept secret with coverage from the Chicago Reader and NPR among others already under her belt.
What initially caught my ear was her 2019 project Side A: Practice/Side B: Supplicate on which she rhymes:
Expectations steady building up/to be real on the verge of maybe giving up/
Maybe I should do this for me and not the accolades/I ain’t afraid to say I lost my way or makes mistakes/
I knew the stakes, but this a race and everybody watching/I think my biggest problem knowing who not really solid/
I don’t belong to no circles, but I’m no Urkel either/plenty years of compromise but I was never eager/
It should come as no surprise that Brittney started penning poetry when she was just 10 and even studied under notable poets like Jamila Woods. Before being discovered by fellow Chi-town artist Add-2 at an open mic session he hosted.
The true testament of Carter’s skills is that much like the greatest MC’s she almost never wastes a word, let alone a bar. With nearly unlimited potential and a stream of new music on the way, Ms. Carter is on her way.
Tap into her music for real lyrical content or if you’re seeking new flavors to bump.
