A couple weeks back we highlighted the Grey EP from the North Carolina producer Noel Figuereo, and yesterday his 006 Set mate Frais put out his latest tape Emerald Bay. The west Charlotte rapper released Digital Flame earlier this year, a project that shared similarities to the electronic crunch and punch of Yeezus; on this latest project Frais takes a 180. The tape's prevailing feeling is an exhale, as the production from Figuereo and PhantonNine3 approach a mellower mood. Frais also shows his city love this time around with Charlotte rappers Well$, Lynn Kieno, HighImRy and Bankroll Bird each given a chance to spit.
