cmfrt. – Facelift (feat. Jay Coast) [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

ethereal, nostalgic and vibey

Facelift has a very nice melodic flow uppon a classic trap beat. Tell us a few things about it.

It’s a collaboration between me and my good friend Jaheem, featuring the always talented Jay Coast. Jaheem and I are on production while Jay lays down his dreamy vocals. It’s an ode 4/20; one of our favorite unofficial holidays. Not just is it a celebration of a holiday, but a testament to our work, how far we’ve come and how far we will continue to go. This is also our first collaboration with Jay, and the videographer Blunt Lung.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

Honestly the amalgamation of all the lyrics are my favorite. No one bar can do justice to the joy the entire song brings.

Do you think there is a true underground hip hop sound today?

In all honesty no. There are too many sounds circulating through the hip hop stratosphere to solidify on one underground sound.

What does hip hop symbolize in your opinion?

Every emotion that can be brought out of you. Hip Hop is my beating heart. The reason I’m still alive. Hip Hop isn’t a symbol but apart of reality; of life.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

“Only the best performers get nervous.”

One last thing we should know about you?

I’m working on a lot of music right now.. soon I will be flooding the world with my name. I can’t wait to show you.

Thank you!
