Ceschi is one of the most interesting artists in all of music, because he can perform damned near any genre. His vast array of skills play a large part in why his contributions to hip-hop are so unique; he takes the genre in directions others haven't thought to because he's just that musically diverse (I still haven't heard him attempt polka, but I assume he can do it. You up for it, buddy?).
Ceschi's 2015 album, Broken Bone Ballads, is a perfect example of everything he can do, and the latest single off of that album is "This Won't Last Forever." A deeply introspective song, with calls for social change, "This Won't Last Forever" features lines like "Never gave a shit about a boss or president / If we want some real change we need to make it with our friends," and "They made it a sin to believe in equality / Called it criminal to fight in solidarity."
Ironically, with a song, and video, this good, "This Won't Last Forever" has a pretty decent shot at lasting forever. Funny how music can work that way.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
