Tennessee artist started rapping at the age of eight about cheerleaders and money with no clue that he would sell over 54,000 records over 13 years. As of 2018, he has been performed 1000 live shows and featured on almost 80 albums with the likes of Lil Jon and Pastor Troy. He is back with another single entitled “Boom Bap Booty Clap” featuring Fresco. The single is booty-shaking music for the ladies in the night club produced by SUPREME BEATS and the video was directed by K-LEE AND SQUEEKS. The single takes me back to my college days at the local bar on a Saturday night after watching a Washington State Football game. Then you and your friends go out and celebrate either a win or a loss. Make sure you give it a listen and leave a comment below!
