Long amber locks, a bare chest under an open wool vest, and a sensitive demeanor—on paper 909Memphis is the antithesis of grouchy golden era hip-hop. While the comparisons to a list of classic celebrity blonde boys can consume the conversation, there is more to the man than the look. 909Memphis makes himself vulnerable, consistently exposing the thoughts that seemingly eat away at his conscious. On "Forfeit", 909 croons along, detailing the exhausting nature of cycling through a relationship that is always in rebuild mode. The artist rides a celestial loop of an instrumental while looking into the sun, guitar in hand in a quality product from MOSHPIT.
909Memphis has a solid body of work to show thus far; just about every cut in his catalogue finds a way to latch into the head of listeners. "Forfeit" is no exception, take a listen below.
