EDITORS’ NOTES

Fmb Dz has a gift for wordplay; he can drop a stretch of his machine-gun drawl where 10 or 20 lines rhyme before he switches it up, making for a hypnotic, driven sound, like a fast walk with an intense friend who’s determined that you hear him out. The debut mixtape’s title track—also Dz’s personal tagline—sees brilliant near-rhymes like “ammunition/ambition/attention/henchmen” and “brothers/trouble/rumble/bubble” underscore the suspense of lyrics about life in Detroit’s mean streets.
