D.Foster is a hip-hop artist from the small town of Roanoke, Alabama. He delivers a blend of conscious, trap, and melodic music. If anyone was unsure about his potential, the album ‘Fosterville’ will make many people believe that he has a shot at being successful. He has the kind of voice that makes you pay attention whether you love his style or not. D.Foster’s gift on the mic produces a drove of highlights, resulting in a project shaped by its peaks, rather than any possible troughs. Together with his knack for speaker-thumping bangers, the 32-year-old Roanoke based artist turns his signature voice to a number of captivating lyrical ideas on ‘Fosterville’.
D.Foster is doubling down on the melodic crooning and rhythmic rhyming on his album. Challenging himself by loading the album with some of the most expansive beats, he proves that he can ride with the best of them and put together a set of comprehensive performances. ‘Fosterville’ harbors a whopping sixteen tracks and only three features, which already certifies he can hold an album together, pretty much by himself.
His vocals feel smooth and unbothered, even when he is pushing it. With countless beat switches, quotable lines, and high-energy performances, ‘Fosterville’ is more than just a standout moment for D.Foster. It’s evidence that he can propel himself wherever he desires.
Standout tracks like the opener, “Fosterville” and the skittering “Foreign Trade”, do more than just show a creative side to D.Foster’s artistry, they establish him as someone with depth, a musician that understands life’s processes and translates it for others.
D.Foster regularly flexes his stylistic versatility, proving he’s more than just a one-dimensional trapper. He seriously mixes it up with features EOD Bizzle & Trilz on “Nia Long”, before switching the template on the super soulful and heartfelt “Honest Truth”.
The album is decorated with stylistic risks, as D.Foster flips from the storytelling exchanges between Damu Savage and himself on “Hot Boxin 1”, to the melodic twisting and turning of the explicit and infectious “Like I Love”.
Fans are graced with both heavy doses of introspective moments from D.Foster, as well as moments that provide high-energy mixes, which saturate the album with adrenalin pumping momentum.
From “Letter To Crime”, “Freak Wit Me” and “Car Wash” ft. EOD Juice, to “03 Story”, delivers a variety of flowing fire, giving us a taste of his true artistic identity, and showing the audience that big things are in store for the future. These four tracks alone will give you the breadth and depth of D.Foster’s artistry.
The introspection comes thick and hard on “Storytellin”, together with the harsh lyricism of “Valley Love Letter”. D.Foster moves into full confrontational mode on “Updating” with aggressive tones. Things take a more soulful turn on the self-aware “My People”, embellished with jangling guitars and skittering hi-hats. D.Foster closes the album with the R&B infused hip-hop groove of “Legacy”.
D.Foster has crafted a well-produced and thoroughly enjoyable album with ‘Fosterville’, incorporating a wide range of styles and emotions throughout the recording to keep listeners engaged. With the unique blend of sonic elements and his signature vocal switches, D.Foster has created a very addicting sound.
