Ok.. so you probably have heard of this guy before if you pay attention to rap at all. I thought I'd put him on here anyways though.

He was known as one of the best baseball players to come out of the Providence, Rhode Island area earning the states 2006 Gatorade Player of the year award.

Now he has established himself as a rising force in the rap game with hundreds of thousands of views of his videos on youtube. He even collaberated with former Dukie Mike Posner.
