Hope springs eternal from the next generation of Boston hip hop artists. Between his summer release of the nostalgia-fueled rap EP, Camp Wildfire, and his recent full-length album, Don’t Try This At Home, local emcee, producer, and visual artist, Fuegoveli has given rap fans a reason to be optimistic for the future of the Boston hip hop scene. An all-purpose creator, Fuego offers blissful beats, melodic rhymes, and levitating vocals on tracks like “Hold On,” along with enigmatic anthems of love and longing like “Patient Zero.” Fuego describes his album creation as “building rooms in a house,” with each song offering unique layouts, fabrics and textures. Now, Fuegoveli is sitting down with hip hop writer, Jared Steinberg from Boston Hassle to talk about his life as an artist, with a view into his creative process and inspirational take on Boston culture.
