In a rap game that currently focuses more on melodious structure than lyricism and the storytelling that a skilled rapper can effectively perform, SoloSam is a breath of fresh air. Anybody craving the raw qualities of retro lyrical cats mixed with modern sounds will enjoy the Chicago artist's latest project, ITIS. From the cover art to the musical content, SoloSam delves into consumerist issues, powerfully picturing cash, weed, and fries next to musical instruments and the Bible.
With a sole feature by Matsu on "Dogs Go 2 Heaven," the project beautifully shows the talent that Sam has worked on for years, first appearing on HNHH as part of our Heatseekers section in 2014. Since then, the Chicagoan quickly sold out the ITIS listening party and is enjoying the success of his "FAST" single. Check out SoloSam's latest EP and get acquainted because he could very well be next up out of his city.
