Fresh Faces Friday: Adonis

A Long Beach emcee with a refreshing new sound.

Fresh Faces Friday: The Fresh Committee Introduces Adonis

Palm trees, bad bitches and OG’s eating on polyseeds. This week’s featured MC comes from Long Beach, California.

First word that comes to mind when you hear Adonis on the mic is: refreshing! Possessing a creative story-telling ability, versatility, and an impeccable delivery. He’s been honing his pen game for years and releasing music commercially for the last few as well, the way he is able to detail his topics in-depth is both impressive and a testament to this.

His latest project Logan featuring production from DJ Skizz is 9 cuts full of more rhymes than places Dora’s explored.

“Long Beach coastin’ your mother wishing for those lost moments/ This ain’t what you want, don’t try it, step aside the hot light glued to your eyelids/ You niggas riding, I’m Poseidon and you dipsy diving/ Marijuana pollen had the city ride over silence while my pistol crying/ Look at what’s left to rap and die in, the street I’m tied in/ Crack the door and then I slide in, you cronies hiding/ You con artists forever thriving, we rock climbing/ My niggas crystal shar finding, silver lining/ Hit the block and then we shift the grande/ I do it better, tuck a leather in a weather that’s chilly/ With the sea breeze its cold, so bring a sweater.”

Adonis has also worked with the likes of Thelonius Martin and rapped alongside Vdon, thus solidifying his spot as an artist to watch.
