Fudge is a collaboration between producer Prefuse73 and emcee Michael Christmas.
Prefuse73 is best known forhis glitchy, abstract, instrumental hip hop. He has worked withhip hop legends Ghostface Killah, El-P, Mos Def, Mikah 9, MF DOOM and the Gza. Lady Partsis the first full-length album he has made with a rapper.
Michael Christmas is a22 year old Boston emcee who has spent the last two years dropping his debut and sophomore mixtapes and touring the USA, opening for Logic and Mac Miller. Hehasa rare degree of charisma and realism that sets him apart from many of his peers in the ones-to-watch lists.
Fudge came together duringseveral sessions in the summer and fall of 2015 at Nick Hook’s Green Point studio. Prefuse73 brought along ahard drive full of beats.Christmas wrote to the instrumentals in the studio,and recorded the vocalsthe same day, as friends swung by to check it out. Some of the drop-ins at the studio ended up joining in the recording, not least D.R.A.M.who brings lifted soul vocals on“Al Points South”.
Months of intensive mixing followed the last Brooklyn session. Prefuse rebuilt his studio in upstate New York and set about finishing the album, making somethingthat pays off on repeat headphone listens as well as one that bumps hard.
The result is an album ofheavyweight production with funny and authentic lyrics.
