Homegrown Hip-Hop

[tweetmeme source=”bucentral”]

Boston is no stranger to homegrown hip-hop, with the young frat rapper/Asher Roth rejuvenation named Sam Adams taking the city under his wing on his flight to iTunes success.  His remix of Roth’s “I Love College” (named “I Hate College,” check it out right below) had approximately one million Youtube views when he released his EP on iTunes. “Boston’s Boy” beat out the likes of Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled to hit number one on the hip-hop charts.

Boston also claims Guru, Mattias and a whole slew of other music personalities that call this city their home. Well being that I’m from the great capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Richmond, I have decided that I’m going to show you guys some of the homegrown rappers from my neck of the woods. Hope you enjoy.

P.S. For any clarifications, where to get more by an artist, etc. hit up the comments.

“Pass Da Blunt” by P.O.$.D.

“Matty, Matty, Matty” by Matty Da Kidd

“EightOhFo” by DJ Shake feat. TD, C.Lo, and Charles R.

I gave you enough songs to listen to, so this Weezy Wednesday, I’ll just let you know that he is now in solitary confinement for having an MP3 player earlier on in the year. But he will not be spending any more time in jail. The Carter IV should be on time. Yay.
