Rising LA artist Kalan.FrFr effortlessly straddles the line between raw street rap and smooth R&B. Stepping into the spotlight for a versatile new project, Kalan shares TwoFr 2. Spanning 13 tracks, the new project is an excellent showcase of what helps the Compton native standout in a crowded hometown scene, namely his silky, rhythmic croon and his sharp sense of songcraft.
TwoFr 2 opens up with mission statement “Look At Me,” a breezy and confident riders anthem, in which the 25-year-old artist marvels at how far he’s come and mourns the grandmother who always believed in him:
“Granny look at me/I know you smile at me when I see the clouds move/I know you proud of me.”
The project progresses through romantic ballads like “Big Dog,” flex-heavy anthems like “Ima Ball,” which alludes to his past as a Division I athlete, to rap-style hybrids like “Never Lose You.”
Also the track “Scoring,” which earned airtime during a Los Angeles Lakers NBA playoff game in the Fall and is currently charting at #29 on urban radio, and “Get In,” a lumbering, piano-heavy banger with an appearance from Stunna 4 Vegas.
The sequel to Kalan’s breakout 2018 tape TwoFr, TwoFr 2 takes the newly-minted Roc Nation signee’s artistry to a new level, complementing his raunchy love songs with introspection and hard-earned wisdom. Featuring production from Cypress Moreno, Bankroll Got It, and more.
