The list of rap stars birthed and bred in Ohio continues to grow. One rapper looking to emerge out of the same Midwest state that introduced the likes of Trippie Redd, Machine Gun Kelly, Kid Cudi and Bone Thugs‑N‑Harmony is Seth Hirsch. A native of Cincinnati, Seth has received co-signs from respected producers like Lex Luger and Nottz. Catch Seth Hirsch putting on for his hometown in XXL’s What I Do? freestyle series.

The newcomer, who has been faced with a fair share of obstacles throughout his life, reflects on his journey in his freestyle. “And now I’m on XXL like I made it out/Use to hustle X and Ls just to get that bank account/I ain’t use to love, I ain’t have nobody to help me out,” raps the artist behind recent releases like “Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood” and “No Friends Freestyle.”

One of the highlights of Seth's verse comes when he shows a bit of love to the late great Nipsey Hussle. “Looking for a miracle/Rest in peace to Nipsey, I hustle, I wanna heal the world,” Seth delivers.

Back in February, Seth revealed a collaboration with another celebrated fallen soldier of hip-hop. Previously unheard vocals from Mac Miller were featured on Seth’s official leak “Say Goodbye.” The song first premiered via AudioMack and was scheduled to be appear on streaming services but never received an official release.
