These days with the flexibility of an independent artist to schedule and create their own releases they often lack the proper planning and/or spacing between other projects that sometimes leave potential fans confused. Fortunately, Fokie Dope is not one of those artists.
With tens of thousands of digital streams and even more views on YouTube, many artists and teams would simply look to expand on the momentum and milk the record and video for all its worth. Instead, Fokie rode that self-created wave to release a super dope EP called “Raised by Wolves”.
Fokie gets right to it on the lead track “Wolves”, the effortless flow over the string and key heavy track serves as the perfect starter to get your mouth watering for more. “Mission Statement” has that Detroit Player flow all over it, while “Sky Castles” featuring Kiwi serves as one the projects stand out tracks but don’t get it twisted, tracks like “Nobodies”, “Strange Program” and “Masters” serve more than just filler or taking up space as they could stand by themselves as singles possibly.
Very few recent projects have that “just press play and listen to the end” quality that classics are made of yet after your first listen you will definitely agree that “Raised by Wolves” would qualify as well. Stream the EP and connect with Fokie Dope on Instagram and Twitter @FokieDope.
