No descent into politics: the new project of Fedez is called Inhuman and it is the seventh album of his career. Released tonight, it not only celebrates the ten-year career of the Milanese rapper but traces his life in twenty tracks: more autobiographical and intimate than ever, it reaches the public two years later. Paranoia Airlines, the result of the pandemic and many personal reflections.
At the same time the single Sapore (with Tedua) arrives on the radio, the favorite piece of his wife Chiara Ferragni, and immediately meets the public in two appointmentsi: Friday 26 November at 5.30 pm in Milan (in Feltrinelli Red City Life) and Saturday 27 at 2 pm in Rome (at the Disco Laziale). Inhuman contains many collaborations: Achille Lauro, Orietta Berti, Francesca Michelin, Myss Keta, Dargen D’Amico, Cara, Tananai, Crookers and Speranza.
It was to be expected that some traces were scratchy, it is already clear from the cover that portrays him in two half-length versions: the one in white marble contrasts with another more provocative black and almost alive one at its side. Both are on a pedestal and this speaks volumes: the title of the art-work is Il narcissista pessimista, created by Francesco Vezzoli. L’work, which will be exhibited in the Triennale, will be auctioned for charity by Sotheby’s: proceeds will go to Together To Go Onlus Foundation, which helps children suffering from complex neurological diseases (even part of the album sales will be donated to the same cause).
On the other hand, the launch was – in perfect Fedez style – a brilliant campaign, of an electoral type (with the FedezElezioni2023) and with absurd slogans and ad hoc manifestos born from his rebellious creativity (“a great troll”, he calls her on social networks). This is how the artist reads reality and a country increasingly in disarray, torn apart by growing extremisms and already foretaste the incoming complaints (in the passage by One day in the district court). Not only Matteo Renzi is in the sights, but a whole series of interlocutors with whom he has already clashed in the past, including the Codacons (who replies in rhyme through the Adnkronos press agency: “Our heartfelt thanks go to him: in this way he allows us to make our intense activity in consumer protection better known to a vast audience”).
