Fi'yah (real name Nicolas Brocks) is a rising rapper from Jackson, Mississippi, but now based in Florida. The emcee's new track, "Darkside" finds him getting personal over a hypnotically sentimental beat. That's not to say the drums don't still bang, but it's clear that Fi'yah knows his strengths, and is building his music around them rather than chasing trends. "I used rap to express myself and motivate others in life," he writes of his approach.
"Darkside" has placed Fi'yah among this week's final four Heatseekers. If you like to have your song or video featured on the site, you can submit content to us here.
Man, it's crazy
People take shit for granted
Some can't grow 'cause of where they was planted
What happens when you don't have a silver spoon?
You gotta eat whatever you get handed
