Chicago artist TG Fee has shared a fresh new video for his recent single “HighestShelf”, produced by Whothehelliscarlo. A member of the fast-rising collective THRAXX GANG, Fee’s penchant for sharply-crafted, introspective lyricism and his ability to deftly combine influences from a versatile array of hip-hop styles make him a standout in today’s music scene. His latest offering, “HighestShelf” takes the listener up to the clouds with uplifting, rich samples, pillowy 808s, and infectious percussion. Containing smoky, elegant strings, dream-like synths, and ethereal vocals, the samples on the beat are evocative and layered, creating a colourful foundation for Fee’s dextrous rhyme schemes. He provides a highlight vocally, with poised, fluid rhyme schemes that build in dynamic patterns, embedding themselves in one’s head long after listening. The accompanying visual is uses vivid, fast-paced cuts to capture the track’s vitality, and Fee gives a commanding performance as well, drawing the viewer into the song’s atmosphere. A cohesive accompaniment to the track that enhances its character-rich sound, the video is engaging and easy to re-visit.
The latest from Chicago’s TG Fee, “HighestShelf” finds him delivering poignant lyrics and charismatic flows, and alongside its new visual is definitely an early fall smash.
