Caleon Fox straightens out his conscientious hip-hop for ‘Semi Cinematic’
Internet joker turned viral rap figure Caleon Fox is a breath of fresh air where West Coast rap is concerned. He promotes clean living, he doesn’t take himself too seriously, and behind the prankster prowess, the Oakland native has dropped some seriously infectious sounds. There’s a sense of the young talent turned rapper growing up a little on “Semi Cinematic” – a marker single from Fox and more recent home Warparth Records. The track itself sounds like a mixture of Sango and a slice of Soulection’s bouncy soul from the outset, with Caleon himself channeling conscientious rap with enough of his slapstick humor to have us convinced not all cheer is lost. “Semi Cinematic” is certainly a one-up move from the West Coast talent, setting a serious bar for his next steps and those hilarious videos along the way.
