Mutant Academy's own Fly Anakin released his debut studio album Frank with Lex Records. Frank is a highly anticipated album that is a promising introduction to Fly's blunt honesty in his music. He had four leading singles with visuals prior to the release such as the emphatic No Dough produced by Madlib.
No Dough is an anthem for the aspiring rapper who blows up tremendously in the music industry. He states brutal honesty where he raps "All my life, I had to fight so it's fuck you, n***** don't never help but always what you been up to. Never mind mine bitch." The chorus goes like this:
"Make sure you got my dough 'fore I go loco. They wasn't fucking with me when I was a local. Put on for n***** and n***** hit em with no show. I'm never doing shit again for no dough. That's a no-no. That's a no-no."
Another leading single of his was a popular song he performed during his UK tour, Sean Price. The ode to the Brownsville, NY emcee is grown man rap over the Evidence produced beat. Fly doesn't care about being politically correct because that's not who he is. Fly Anakin is a Southside Richmond native that speaks what is on his mind and is unafraid of what people think about it.
Frank is a seventeen-track album that puts on for the city of Richmond. Some notable features include underground rap legend, Nickelus F on Ghost, Pink Siifu on Black Be the Source, Dontbeafraid featuring fellow mutant Henny L.O., and Telepathic with another fellow mutant Big Kahuna OG. Frank has a mixed bag of production that can cater to any demographic. Whether you prefer string instrumentals like the beat on WaxPoetic, ominous production with a gritty vinyl sound like Ghost featuring Nickelus F, or a harmonious beat like Grammy Snubnose, it has a variety of sounds to keep listeners on their toes. Production credits range from DJ Harrison of the Butcher Brown band, Foisey, Sycho Syd, Madlib, and evidence. Some highlights of the album include Telepathic, Black Be The Source featuring Pink Siifu and Billz Egypt, and Poisonous Primates.
