Otis Fonde Drops, “804 Part 2”

by The Alchemist

Otis Fonde is a kid from the rural town of Prince George, VA that chose to sit in his room to make beats and write rhymes over watching television and playing games. He would spend hours, nights and weekends making songs, yet everyone overlooked this particular dedication and focus to music. Instead, he was told to make sure he goes to college and get a good job. After continuing a federal government job in Washington D.C. and becoming consumed by the typical “work to live” lifestyle, he decided to venture off to Las Vegas for his career and a change of scenery. His practicality allowed for an engaging and adventurous experience; yet, Otis Fonde always maintained his genuine characteristics as a sincere, loyal, and passionate person. It was in Vegas where Otis Fonde met a few other aspiring artists in the music industry such as Deon, a close and dear friend who has always been a strong driving force in his music from Day 1. Despite life’s changes, trials, and tribulations, music has been the one and only thing that always makes Otis Fonde feel complete. Otis Fonde’s lyrics are methodical, well thought out, have a meaning and describe a story or situation, that is capable of pulling emotions out of the listener. Wise and always thinking years ahead, many of his songs explain a scenario or life event long before it actually happens in some shape or form. His music creates a mood that takes you on a trip. Otis where we going!?

 

His newest track is called, “804 Part 2” and has some of the best lyricism we’ve heard in a while. The beat is a Drake-esque beat that has samples that we fell in love with. As you listen to this song you’ll admire the upbeat feel to it, as this is a great song to listen too while working out. Check out the song below.

Dar Williams: A songwriter’s wisdom—in book form

Early in pandemic times, Dar Williams faced the uncomfortable truth that her career as a world-touring musician had stalled. While locked down—along with the rest of us—the singer-songwriter opened up virtual photo albums to recall trips to domestic cities and foreign lands to which she brought her unique music-set poetry.

“I was going through my photos online and I got this case of FOMO—envy for this person who has traveled all over the world,” Williams said recently, “and I was like ‘oh, my god, it’s me!’
Now I’m telling myself [to] take the day to appreciate whatever city you’re in.
