Audio: F.Stokes - "Mission"

Album releases are usually joyous moments for the artist who has poured his or her heart and soul into the intricacies of the music, as F.Stokes has done on his new project Fearless Beauty, which is available today. The Chicago poet and lyricist is no different, letting loose the standout track "Mission" as he celebrates the unleashing of the new album. Yet, even in his celebration, he remains tied to the painful stories and contradictions of family, city, and culture. "Mission" maintains an underlying sense of empathy, and he urges his listener to try to feel the same-though he himself may not have felt the pull of the addicts, or "hit the liquor store and took the bank," he sees the demons of his people, and is trying to understand their paths in an effort to, as he puts it, "signify the circle of life through the eyes of a young warrior in search of peace."
