Fabian “Flaco” Bell is a local indie artist whose new tape, Hom3Grown is the soundtrack of a generation on the rise. His verse imparts skillfully constructed patterns and invokes images that spark connection and emotion through masterful word play. It’s important to note that a serious car accident derailed the production Hom3Grown. It’s release is a testament to the inherent persistence of an artist on a mission. The resulting recording is personal, raw and rooted in a city that is being propelled forward by a generation striving for better. This tape is much more than the tracks that comprise it or the production that frames it. It’s a profound and soulful contribution to Baltimore’s renaissance.
