As the Summer draws to a close, VannDigital.com brings you four new artists for the August 2014 edition of the “Artists 2 Watch” column. Enjoy this article & we’ll be back next month.
For everybody that feels that the Carolinas can only produce pop-rap (or country-bama music as some people outside the South call it), put your eyes on South Carolina rapper Rey Stackz. Rey Stackz is 1 of many Carolina rappers that can compete with your favorite NYC & LA rapper when it comes to lyricism. His latest mixtape ‘The Guide To Growth & Development‘ gives you a taste of what he can bring to the table.
With the Alabama hip-hop scene being better known for artists such as Dirty, Rich Boy, & Doe B (R.I.P.), rapper/basketball fan Pro Status is a breath of fresh air. Pro Status is the only (that I know of) rapper from Alabama that shows the world real, complex lyricism. You can give ears a listen to Pro Status’ lyrical showcase which can be found on his “Above The Rim“-inspired project ‘Above The Rhyme‘ which is entirely produced by South African producer The Militia.
Houston rapper/producer Tre’ Crowell let’s us know that there’s more to Houston hip-hop than sipping on lean, sittin’ sideways, chopped-n-screwed music, & swangas. Not since The Geto Boys & K-Rino has H-Town produced many lyrical rappers such as Tre’ Crowell. His debut track on VannDigital.com, “Stand Tall“, backs up my claim.
A popular artist in Orlando, Florida’s underground rap scene, Mook Boy brings his own style of trap-rap to the table. As Mook Boy continues to drop track after track & project after project, major labels are bound to reach out to him soon & that’s if he chooses to go down that path. Fans of trap-rap can stream Mook Boy’s latest single “Nobody” here on VannDigital.com!!!
