Frank Leone has created something very unique, deep and genuine with EnterWILD. The album premiered on Pigeons and Planes on March 10 after sunset. The young artist set the bar high for himself with this 3 years in the making project and achieved something very special, it is an audio action adventure as he described. Frank directed his audience to listen to the entire album all the way through and I did that. EnterWILD is worthy of several listens, there is a lot here to take in, the music impacts and the lyrics are substantial and astute. He produced all the music and tapped into a diverse range of music and inspiration. I hear elements of soul, jazz, church and even contemporary classical music. This is not at all a typical sounding Chicago hip hop record, it is a trip led by a smart and in tune 19 year old artist with a gift for articulating complexity and emotion. I hope it finds a huge audience as the work warrants it. I interviewed Frank a month or so ago and he said that “I don’t want to have it viewed as a mixtape, like a stepping stone in your career. I want this to be a permanent staple of a “legacy” when I’m done.” Frank has done that with EnterWILD, listen and join him on the adventure.
