Breakout: "Going Live"

Also Check: "Beautiful Rebellion"

And: "First Day of Summer"

Name: Openmic

Age: 21

Reppin': The six fifteen, nashville10, lol...Nashville, TN

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Jay Electronica, Kanye West, Jazz, and Poetry

I started rapping: When I was 13 on the back of a bus. I hopped in a cypher and started out freestyling the older kids. Started recording at 17.

My standout moments/records have been: Opening up for the legend Talib Kweli and surprising every crowd I get in front of. People never see my skillset or stage presence coming so when they see me perform there's always that shock value. My standout records are "Nonfiction," "Can You Blame Him," and "Rock and Roll" from my latest mixtape For The Rebels.

I'm gonna change the game by: Being consistent and naturally evolving as an artist. Nobody is truly different on purpose so the only way to be different is to be yourself. That's what I plan to do.

I'd like to work with: Mos Def, Alvin Band, and Moruf

My goal in hip-hop is: To buy a jeep, tear the doors off, stick my foot out, and ride that junt like a skateboard lol

I'm going to be the next: Southern lyricist to be impactful to the culture. It's rare to find emcees like myself who really study and try to be perfectionists lyrically. So I'm the next one to fill that space.
