The Fieldz is a 17-year-old rapper from Virginia that has already impressed with dark, gimmick-free, lyrically sharp tracks like “Hoodie Season.” His new mixtape, In My Own World II, has arrived. The tape shows off The Fieldz’ wide ranging influences, bringing in soulful loops, Lex Luger hi-hats, vintage-type storytelling joints, and indie pop sampling for a mix-and-match look at the young artist’s taste. It ends up lacking enough cohesiveness to paint a clear picture of The Fieldz as a unique artist rather than a talented rapper, but it’s also good to hear a developing MC with a taste for so many styles. Check out the tape below.
