Friday Fire Cypher: Issa Ali and Fvrthr Demonstrate their Skills by Rapping Over Beats by, Rod The Producer

Like any other Monday, who wouldn’t want to start their day off by listening to some fire freestyles! Today, we would like to introduce Issa Ali, Fvrthr, & Rod The Producer. Fvthr states he’s from “everywhere,” however, on the show he is representing the Bronx. Being raised off of early hip-hop, Fvthr, takes us down memory lane by telling us how and when he got inspired to rap. Rapping has always come to easy to the young mc, so he always understood how to do it.

Further into the interview we get reintroduced to Dayton, Ohio artist, Issa Ali. Ali, has been passionate about music for awhile, and his dedication and hard work has carried him very far. He first rapped on Sway’s show in Detroit, and has got cosigned by Dave Chappelle.

Each artist got their fair share on Rod The Producer’s beats as they both rapped some of craziest verses. Both artists bring a different style and approach to their music, but each artist presents a great talent for fitting in the pocket of the beat. Prior to the freestyle, Rod discusses his new beat tape dropping this week called “Rodstrumentals Vol. 1” on August 16th.
