Project: Felly – Wild Strawberries
LA Leakers Premiere the 21-Year-Old Emcee’s Stylistically Diverse, Supernaturally Smooth New Release
“The long-haired spitta is a promising young rapper who’s been growing steadily over the past couple of years.” – XXL
“The Connecticut-bred artist consistently delivers music perfectly suited for warm weather, with this new cut arriving at an ideal time.” – Elevator Mag
“Stylish, with his flowing long hair, Felly is a unique part of the up-and-coming generation of young rappers.” –HotNewHipHop
A gifted young emcee with a predilection towards textured and lush instrumentation, Felly is a charismatic purveyor of melodic vibes. Navigating a wide range of styles and moods, Felly is an excellent tour guide into his sonic world on Wild Strawberries, his latest project. A soulful and warm collection of tracks, Felly fluidly experiments with genres and mood on the project, providing a smooth baller’s anthem with “Bag Season,” charmingly reflects on his come-up on the laid-back “Oceans,” and even tries his hand at dancehall with the bouncy and rich “Wide Angle,” featuring an appearance from dancehall artist Konshens. Premiered by L.A. Leakers, Wild Strawberries is a fun-loving and self-assured project from a rising young artist. Featuring additional appearances from Gyyps, Flex and Trip Carter, Wild Strawberries is a major statement from Felly, anchored by his deep musicality and carefree persona.
A musical prodigy with a devoted fanbase and an ear for diverse beats, Trumbull, Connecticut native Felly has already earned over 52 million SoundCloud plays and attracted more than 63k YouTube subscribers. Last year, at only 20 years-old, Felly headlined a 31-date tour that found him performing at colleges and venues nationwide. In the run-up to Wild Strawberries, Felly shared two music videos: the Highsnobiety-premiered “Bag Season,” which depicted a ramshackle poolside bash, and the psychedelic “Wide Angle,” which found the young rapper traipsing through a dreamlike field of flowers and strawberries as the atmosphere morphed and changed color around him. The proper follow-up to last year’s hit Young Fel EP, Wild Strawberries is the ideal record for the dog days of Summer ’17, perfectly suited for poolside BBQs or rooftop, nighttime smoke sessions.

Born and raised in Trumbull, Connecticut, Christian Felner aka Felly grew up immersed in hip-hop music. Using passion as his guide, Felly taught himself how to make beats on a laptop in his parent’s basement. The aspiring rapper began to make a name for himself as a producer by selling said beats on YouTube. After relocating to Los Angeles, the rapper released two solo projects Waking Up to Sirens and Milk and Sugar. The projects featured Dreamville signee Ari Lennox and frequent collaborator, GYYPS. As his music caught more attention, Felly began working with more talented producers resulting in the release of his mixtape This Shit Comes in Waves. The mixtape’s success resulted in a 31+ city headlining tour and a SXSW appearance. Recently, Felly has relocated to New York City, where he prepared for the release of Wild Strawberries which came out in August 2017.
