Fearce & BeanOne

Fearce Villain has more than earned his stripes in the brag-rap arena as a vital member of three-headed local rap turret Dyme Def, but dig deeper, and you'll find tracks that delve into the mind of a man who came up hard. Many of his verses seem therapeutic in their disclosure, but they're also delivered in a strong tone that empowers the listener. Behind the boards on their recent collaborative album, There Goes the Neighborhood, Seattle beat veteran (and primary Dyme Def producer) BeanOne brings out the best in Fearce—from punchlines to introspection—with his nostalgic, sample-reliant production. With The Bad Tenants, Irukandji Physics of Fusion, Global Heat. TODD HAMM
