The New New: 15 Boston Rappers You Should Know
Hometown: Roxbury, MA
Notable song: “Spliff Lifta” featuring Retrospek
Sounds like: Deep-voiced and self-proclaimed “average guy” whose flexibility allows him to twist words to fit any beat.
Why you need to know him: Catch Wreck’s style exudes the almost lackadaisical confidence of someone along the lines of a Prodigy from Mobb Deep. His Collective Consciousness mixtape references The Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye” and Nas’ “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” in equal measure, and if that doesn’t scream “versatility” loud enough, he also performs in the rock band Sweatshop as their resident MC.
