Following his signing with 300 Entertainment and the release of his highly-anticipated album Young Fel 2 in October, trailblazing rapper, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer Felly, popularly known for the soulful “Heartstrings” with Carlos Santana and swagger-filled “Cheap Cheap” with Jack Harlow, has released his inspiring and philosophical new documentary “WAVES,” available today on YouTube HERE.
The documentary gives fans a never-before-seen behind-the-scenes look at Felly’s incredible, multi-dimensional story as well as the making of his newest album, Young Fel 2. The eleven and a half minute video tells the story of Felly with video footage throughout his musical career. Sharing details of Felly as a person, the video highlights sources of inspiration, including his many introspective and often philosophical thoughts, and gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his indie/hip hop/alt pop Young Fel 2 album. You can spot exciting scenes with UFC Superstar Jorge Masvidal and surging musicians like Dominic Fike (“3 Nights” – 650M), Landon Cube (“Red Roses” w/ Lil Skies – 600M), and more.
Speaking of the documentary, Felly stated, “WAVES is the quickest way to get to know me as a person and artist. It captures where my head has been the past 5-6 years, up until dropping my most recent album Young Fel 2. It goes in depth on the process of finding my sound, getting closer to myself and to my fans along the way. I feel like this doc is as important as the album – in terms of where I’ve been and where I’m heading…I’m a work in progress and always will be. There’s no destination here and that’s a good thing.”
“WAVES” comes one month after the video for his album track “Bones,” the album release and the significant announcement of his signing with 300 Entertainment, one of the largest independent record labels in the world and home to Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, Gunna and many more. Young Fel 2 consists of fourteen masterfully-crafted songs that showcase a culmination of Felly’s signature creative rap flow, supreme lyricism, diverse and unforgettable production, and beaming energy, while also clearly displaying evolved songwriting and growth as an artist. The project and its production have influences from a variety of genres and evoke a spectrum of feelings, beginning with the laidback and vibey focus track, “Fresh Water.” Other standout songs of the project include the upbeat and infectious hip-hop track “Fire Out Back,” the slower-paced and folk-influenced “Open Door,” and the deeply personal final song “Black Van.”
