Majestic show review + photos

"You see. A F.Stokes set is more than hip-hop, but a blend of showmanship and realism interwoven with a passion and comfort few attain on stage. Showmanship in the sense he works the crowd with his innate sense of how we’re feeling, where we want to go, and exactly how he’ll take us there." - Mezzic

props to John Brunner for the dope photos

F. Stokes at B&B

Benz & Backpack give props

"Captivate the crowd. Capture their hearts but free their bodies. Challenge their ears, their minds; make their souls clap."

"Stokes’ recordings hint at his dynamism in concert, but they couldn’t ever prepare you fully for the amount of charisma he exudes."

"He’s on the rise, about to embark on a tour with Mac Lethal. Keep an eye out for Stokes in a city near you. You’ll be glad you did."

"From the first moment F.Stokes opened his mouth I was captivated, and as I stood in front of him as he dripped sweat and spat lyrics, I couldn't help but draw the comparison with a baptism by this prophet of positivity." - Natalie S Dane 101
