Standout: “Jordans & A Gold Chain”

Also Check Out: “Can’t Let Go”

And: “Untitled”

Name: Tez McClain

Age: 27

Reppin': Southside of Atlanta, GA

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Nas and T.I., T.I. cause we’re both from Atlanta so there’s a similar southern drawl, plus I can make different types of records. The Nas comparison is mainly because of my ability to be introspective & street on different tracks. At the end of the day, both artists influenced my style heavily.

My standout records and/or moments have been: My standout record thus far has been “Jordan’s & A Gold Chain” cause it was featured in publications like SLAM that are not music based. My standout moment has been recording with Scarface. He is a Hip Hop legend and one of my favorite rappers of all time.

I’m gonna change the game by: Bringing in a new point of view. I’m from Atlanta, over the years people have often told me that I don’t sound like the tradition “Atlanta rapper,” so I’m just bringing in a new flavor as far as that goes. Also, I’m speaking from the eyes of a college graduate that is very close with those that live another type of life, so I’m coming from both sides.

I’d Like to Work With: My first major feature was with Scarface, so I set the bar pretty high for myself, lol. But I wanna work with alot of people I grew up listening to. Artists like Snoop, R.Kelly, Nas, T.I., Jadakiss, there’s so many.

My goal in hip-hop is: Leave my mark when I’m done with it

I’m gonna be the next: Actually I’m gonna be the first Tez McClain
