Sam Adams – The Come Up

“Still I Rise” feat. G. Curtis

Whether you’ve noticed or not, Sam Adams has a buzz that’s growing by the day. And maybe you haven’t noticed, which is understandable, because the Boston-area native is making much of his noise outside of hip-hop circles, as he’s been garnered an especially fanatical following among college and high school kids. But now’s the time to get caught up.

The recent college grad first created a stir with his “I Hate College,” a remix to Asher Roth’s “I Love College,” which currently has five million hits on YouTube. He then made more noise last March when his Boston’s Boy debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Albums chart. No Sam is getting ready to perform in Cancun with Wiz Khalifa for college spring break in the coming weeks. He’s also prepping his debut album, which he says will be released on a major (he’s been fielding offers since Boston’s Boy), likely in late summer/early fall. —Adam Fleischer
