SOLO THA SECRET (L.A.) “2 Time Reigning Los Angeles 2RACKS Champion” Artist Review /// UndergroundHipHopBLOG.comPosted: July 24, 2012
SOLO THA SECRET is a west coast MC who you are sure to hear a lot more about in the near future. He is rapidly rising through the ranks of underground hip hop with his murderous flows and impeccable delivery. Starting off as a backpack rapper out of Long Beach, he took his surroundings and life experiences and turned them into philosophical wordplay. Coming “from an age when WU TANG was on the radio”, he strays away from the mainstream, only spitting realism & truth. There have been many obstacles in his way, but he has used each one of them as motivation & opportunity to develop his craft only getting better and better with each track he blesses. He is currently a 2 time reigning Los Angeles 2RACKSchampion. This is his second win in the competition, which is the first time in 2RACKS history that a contestant took the title home twice. He has competed in this competition 4 times and made it to the championship round all four times.
Not only is he a microphone controller, he is an experienced producer and engineer. He recently opened up his own studio (Epicdemic Productions) and produces & engineers music for local artists. His influences include Planet Asia, Taib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def, Wu Tang Clan, Andre 3K, Tupac Shakur, Snoop, Dre, West Side Connection, Xzibit, Strong Arm Steady, The Roots Crew, The Fugees, Common, Cassidy, Redman, Nas, Canibus, Elzhi, DJ Premier, Hi Tek , Dilla and Black Milk just to name a few.
He released his first mixtape “Now You Know,” in early 2011. But due to a run in with the law & subsequent jail time, it wasn’t promoted. His 2nd mixtape “Tha Secrets Out” dropped shortly after his release this year and has been very successful. His 1st entirely self produced highly anticipated album titled “Intellectual Property” is set to drop in August 2012 under Step Down Music.
He possesses enormous potential…It is only a matter of time before the music he drops is rooted in the public’s mind and his popularity and relevance grows to new heights. To reach Solo, contact: email@example.com
