Fabri Fibra Essentials
In a stomping ode to his motherland, Fabri Fibra catalogues all the colourful types who call Italy home: mafiosos, models and writers like Machiavelli. Fabri himself adds rappers to that list, wielding his native language like a jackhammer. After underground success in the late '90s, he captured mainstream attention with the controversial Tradimento, a pelting collection of urban angst largely produced by his brother Nesli. Though Fabri has since branched out into experimental pop and electro, he's never ceded one inch of his trademark tenacity.
