Out The Deep End is the debut solo album from Fo Chief of Fresh Breath Committee and produced by Majestic Beats of Providence, Rhode Island. This lyrically impressive album has something for every music palette. Fo Chief shows that he can not only rhyme with the best of them, but can also nail the notes in each and every chorus on the album.
The beats and production quality are outstanding. Majestic’s production skills match the soulful, darker overall vibe of the album seamlessly. This album is proof that it pays to cross state lines and engage with some of the best national talent.
Out The Deep End comes on the heels of Chief’s mix tape “AirBag Jones – A Quick Fixtape.” Other previous projects include the Colorado classic mixtape “Cannonball Soup” with Kontrast of the Fresh Breath Committee, “Nothing Else Matters” with ProCYSE of Soulfficial and recent 2011 FBC release “Group Therapy”.
Out The Deep End is the first Colorado collaboration project for both Fo Chief and Majestic Beats. Majestic Beats has produced for some of Rhode Island’s finest emcees including Swann Notty, Miles Grimes, Writes, & Chachi Carvalho, not to mention production on the award winning track “Letras” from Portuguese rap legend Sandro G, which continues to break records in the Azores & Portugal.
Although as an entity the Fresh Breath Committee has produced amazing content, it’s always very refreshing to see a group artist step away from the pack and shine on their own. This album also proves that Fo Chief has the support of his committee behind him, as each member of the group appears in several of the album’s tracks. The album also features several non committee and former committee artists as well, such as ChampSoundKillaBlack of Foodchain, Kerz One of Sound Pictures, Milez Grimes, Swann Notty, Sloe Sip, and Myke Charles.
2012 has proved to be a prolific year for Fo Chief and 2013 should be even better. Look for a video set to be released early 2013 with production by Press Media Group and a second solo album from Fo Chief as well. Rumor has it that Cannonball Soup II is in the works. We can only hope.
