So I posted a blog called “Hottest MC’s 2013” to get your feedback on who you believe should be in the top 10 and you believe shouldn’t be. Well now I want your opinion to see who your top 5 favorite artist are now. Not your favorite artists of all time, rather your favorite artists from the past couple years. I’m interested in seeing the correlation between personality and music preference. If you would like to participate, just list your top 5 rappers below and give me a little insight to why they are so high on your list. Just so I can give you guys an idea of where I am, my list is as follows:
- Kendrick Lamar
- J. Cole
- Mac Miller
Eminem is a definite and a given for me. The flows and the rhythmic abilities that he has are second to none. I chose Kendrick for the number two spot because this guy can spit. He doesn’t just lay some nice flows down without substance. When he writes, he makes sure to add parts of his life in his songs and he makes you think about them with the way he words it. I have to go back and re-listen half the time! Drake is here because of how simple his beats are, which makes him able to show his lyrical abilities. And the fact that he doesn’t
try to pose. He talks about not growing up in the hood so he never tries to act hard like all these other fakers. And he knows how to write songs about women! J. Cole is a storyteller. One of the best if you ask me, but I just st
arted listening to him so give me some time and maybe he will climb the ranks. You might be shocked by Mac Miller because not everybody approves of him but he is independent and he a record label’s worst nightmare. Plus he’s got some clever flows and lyrics. So there you go, let me know who your favorites are and SUBSCRIBE!!!!
Seeing that I have some awesome supporters, I would just like to extend an opportunity out your way. So what do you guys see me doing next? Give me some ideas! I would love to hear what you would like to see from me this upcoming 2014 year. Any video ideas or any song ideas, feel free to throw them at me. I’m all ears!!! I would love to show my appreciation of you guys in any way possible!

Well, here it is. This is the 2nd single from my new project entitled, “A Mirror Image”.
iGalactic features my alter ego, the darker side of me, “dr. O”. The new single also features Pechaman, a high school friend of mine and aspiring artist. When I heard the song, “Intergalactic”, by the Beastie Boys, I knew right then and there I wanted to sample it. Mind you, being a fan of the Beastie Boys growing up, I listened to most of their material so this wasn’t the first time I had heard the song. After I got the idea, I instantly messaged my boy, Truhble Kelp, through Twitter. I told him the exact sample that I wanted and within 3 hours that dude busted out the beat you hear before you. I was so impressed that I started writing as soon as I could. I finished the song that night! I had been talking to Pechaman about getting him on a feature because I wanted this next project to have a lot of Bradenton/Sarasota rappers in it to show the talent this city has. After finishing the lyrics, I heard him on that last verse, and he went IN on it!! I wanted to portray the fun times and life so this beat just naturally went with it. I had an awesome time making this song and I hope you liked it as well.

This time, I want your input. I’m going to give you mine in regards to the rappers on this year’s list so hear me out. There are three rappers that I personally should not have seen on this list and they are Rick Ross, Future, and Meek Mill. Don’t get me wrong, I think that MMG is a strong group with talented artists, but you can’t tell me Rick Ross’ same flow on every song is eligible for number 3 on the list. Future had a couple of songs that were popular, but other than that, he is on everybody’s hooks. I don’t believe that qualifies him for this spot. And finally, Meek Mill. I know that they are several Meek Mill fans out there and I have respect for the MC, but hearing some of his songs just turned me off from him. He, to me, has ABC rhymes that are elementary. Give me some cleverness and some diversity in your lyrics and maybe I will start listening.
Now even though I think they shouldn’t be on there does not mean I don’t have respect for these artists. They have proven themselves accordingly so nothing can be said about that. I do like; however, Kendrick’s being put on the top spot. He deserves that throne after he dropped good kid, m.A.A.d. city. 2 Chainz coming in second is not a surprise to me whatsoever. I see 2 Chainz as more of a hype rapper than a lyricist and that’s why I think he does well in this spot. Any other opinions? Feel free to leave a comment below on the Hottest MC’s 2013.
Just shy of a half a year after my debut mixtape, R.A.W., was released, and I’m dropping my new free album, Special Delivery, on July 17th, 2013. But unlike R.A.W., this album will give you insight to how I live my life, as well as, a little history about me. There will be songs on there that are hype-filled and you can turn up to, but there will also be those that you can vibe to and hopefully relate. Those are the true intentions; to show you that I didn’t have it easy growing up even though I was raised “middle class” most of my life and to show those people out there that can relate to me that they aren’t the only ones in their situation.
The sounds in this next project are very experimental in my opinion. I’ll be having Mack, NoName Beats, Truhble Kelp, and myself behind all of the music and a couple of featured artists will be jumping on some great tracks! If you haven’t heard my first tape, R.A.W., here is the link, and hold me down until Special Delivery drops on July 17th.
