The Friday Five

The Friday Five
Asher, Gibbs, Vic Mensa, Ab-Soul.  These are some cats that I just feel more heads need to be bumpin’.  Earlier this week, I had a convo about what hip-hop seems to be lacking these days.  I mean, you got what’s out on the radio, which is cool, given that there’s room for it if you’re tryna turn up or get a lil ignant every now and then.  But when it comes to being thoroughly entertained through and through, hip-hop needs that lil extra from the under the radar cats to keep heads digging beneath the surface of mainstream’s audio flotsam and jetsam.  So this Friday Five highlights some artists that will help you dig into a deeper appreciation for hip-hop, in the (inevitable) event that you do need a break from the same cycle on the radio airwaves. 

 

Richard "Reach" Guinto

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
