The Black Son x ‘The Black Son Rising’ EP

The BlackSon Set to Rise


18 year old recording artist The Black Son is one of the most lyrical hidden talents the Rap Game will soon witness.  From the Music City of U.S.A., Nashville, TN, The Black Son is no newcomer to the blossoming creative scene in Nashville. In 2012 and 2013 The Black Son was handpicked to represent the Nashville SLAM team at the national spoken word competition, Brave New Voices. He also sold out 2 successful shows in his hometown within the last year and opened up for Dom Kennedy on his ‘Get Home Safely’ Tour this past February.

His lyrical dexterity is on full display on ‘The Black Son Rising’ EP. Darker instrumentals are used as the musical backdrop to provide the perfect soundscape for The Black Son to vividly depict the harsh realities that so many disenfranchised youth in American inner cities are faced with today. From the manic drum patterns of ‘Hidden Colors’, to the chilling, voice-cracking vocals on ‘Rolling Stone’, to the cautionary tales sprinkled across  ‘Wiretaps’, there is an obvious emotional clarity in the music and the messages that are the highlights of this initial offering.
