Hip Hop rhythms combined with RnB melodies and a dreamlike, trip-hop soundscape on this single from PARKKR. Fool4u offers a quickly memorable and entrancing melody, as well as a fast-paced outpouring of lyricism that delicately fuses widespread relevance and personal story-telling.
Production-wise the softness on this track stands out among the album’s surrounding songs. The vibe is something you quickly get into, and that voice is a leading trait that’s fairly easy to recognize once you’re familiar with PARKKR’s music. This particular track has a definite concept about it though, so where there are certain references that seem fit for the contemporary hip hop wave in general, there are also plenty that helps explore the intriguing ideas of that title.
PARKKR is a creative hip-hop rap artist from Hattiesburg, MS. Since his start, he has always wanted to do something special so he can manage his own identity. You get a partly classic hip-hop-inspired vibe from this, and partly a touch of the more Post Malone style of melodic-rap that’s taken the mainstream by storm in recent years.
PARKKR walks the line well, all the while making sure to bring in his own personal experiences and emotions when it comes to writing and performing. He is a talented piano player too. What makes him stand out from the rest is that he adds emotions to his songs so when you listen to him he will take you to an imaginary world. Artists like Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole was his idol and inspired him to pursue a career as a musician.
The finish on the mix is beautiful, the down-tempo mood and the artist’s mellow, near-whispered delivery all work together in unison to craft something calming and easy to vibe to. It doesn’t hit hard, but rather, it offers escapism – the sort of late-night tune we turn to when things get overwhelming or noisy out there in the real world.
