Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

[Exclusive] Highrise: The Rapper On The Way Way Up Or A Train Wreck Waiting To Happen!



We're not sure if it's the creepy, silhouetted phantom that represents his brand; the Bieberish looks; or the eclectic catalog of vibey, emotional pop/trap and goofy lyrical music that has caught our attention, but this is clearly an artist who is making a name for himself doing whatever the hell he wants. Along with a Mentor-Prodigy relationship with the acclaimed cult leader and producer, LX Xander, it's easy to see how the whole vibe around this artist sparks excitement, intrigue, and at least a few "WTF" faces.

A quick look across his social pages shows an artist who is open with his fans (possibly too open), promotes positivity, and works hard at his craft; while his music tells stories of heartbreak, apathy, drug abuse, has a flair for bravado, or at times is just straight up silly. Either this artist is constantly at war with himself or he knows exactly what he's doing and wants to keep his fans on their toes. If the latter is the case, he's succeeded at least in this office. We're about split on whether to love him or hate him.

In an era where branding and fitting a mold thrives, finding an indie artist who shows all sides of himself like a hip hop Picasso painting is a breath of fresh air, however it remains to be seen whether this will work out for him in the long run. Come what will, we'll be rooting for you, Highrise.
