Hes going on tour with Drake and A$AP, but only playing US dates. It ends March 11th in San Diego. Perhaps hell make a trip to the fields.
Is there any potential this guy is good live? He strikes me as a perfect example of an artist who is great to chill out to, but would fall flat live. I'm open to being proved wrong.

One of my current favorite rappers. Ergo, I'm signed.
Saw him live, really didn't dig it. The energy's there but it's too much, I couldn't understand a single fucking word. He's not quite there with the live part. Maybe next year.

This guys been on repeat for me the past couple of weeks. Very interesting to listen to. He grew up in Compton, has been through the trials and tribulations of street life but also seems to be disenchanted with it; he really preaches creativity and passion and ulterior means to pulling yourself out of poverty than crime or a dead end job. He's got a really unusual voice and delivery, which makes me feel he'll never really blow up mainstream because he won't appeal to a mass audience. His lyrical content and flow are amazing though
