In recent years, there have been relatively only a few rappers who are making it out of New Jersey. Mir Fontane has turned out to be the figure that NJ needed, as he consistently reps his home state shamelessly. In his freshly released album, Camden, Mir paints vivid pictures for his readers to show the truth about his city and his upbringing. Despite how Camden holds a reputation of being a dangerous place to live, Mir uses this 12-track project to masterfully tell his journey about not falling as a victim to his environment.
After locking down a spot on 300 Entertainment’s roster earlier this year, Mir followed up by proving he fully deserved to secure that major stepping stone in his career. He continued to thrive in consistency and quality as he delivered multiple successful tracks, including “Down By The River“, which currently sits at over half a million plays on SoundCloud. He also dropped a visual for his hit, “Frank Ocean”. The song has quickly become a fan favorite, reeling in tons of buzz on social media. The project also rightfully utilizes Jersey talent in more ways than one. Beats produced by Jersey-based producers, Kev Rodgers and Kenif Muse, are all over the album. Camden’s production credits also include Maaly Raw, Jahlil Beats and Bennie Briggman.
Mir Fontane recently hit the road for his “Fresh Out The Jungle Tour” alongside Tate Kobang. Be sure to grab tickets here.
