Franco Breaks Out


St. Louis native Michael Franco’s debut album The Fool Rushes In is a testament to his time spent living with Oakland rapper G-Eazy in New Orleans. And while Franco may have picked up his beat making skills from G, he certainly isn’t letting that limit him. Soulful and even somber at times, the album showcases a musician who’s on the verge of artistic freedom, nearly unlimited by the necessary software intermediaries. The only thing holding Franco back at this point is a programmed snare that appears way too often throughout the album. Franco has a talent for pulling at the heartstrings with these tracks, and there are very, very few beatmakers who posses the same skill. Check out a couple standout tracks, and download the whole album, for FREE here.
