Duluth Rap Artist: Theory

Hey everybody, I’ve been looking at this site for awhile now but this is my first post. I realize this may not be the perfect place to promote myself, but I decided to give it a try.

I’m an 18-year-old kid, born and raised in Duluth, and I’ve been making rap for the past couple years. If rap music isn’t your thing, or you’re turned off by the occasional cuss word, then I may not be for you — not trying to offend anyone. But if you’re interested feel free to check me out at either of the following places.  Thanks for your time.

Dude, bring it! I'm sure there's a spot for you @ next year's Homegrown ... get in @ Lucé ... hook up with Crew Jones and shake some shit up with Burly!

I am admittedly not a rap expert nor fan, but I think it's great that you're just doing this on your own -- recording your songs on your own without fancy recording equipment and releasing it for free, not coming here to beg for people to buy your music.  Get out in the Duluth music scene, try to book some performances wherever they'll take you.  Good luck.

Two words: Jake Larsen. He's local. He might be able to at least steer you in the right direction if you want to take it to the next level.

This is good.  I'll admit that I did think of "Average Homeboy" when I was listening to the tracks.  



But the thing is you are rapping from your experience, it's very honest.  I appreciate your honesty and the heart that you bring to it. I listened to a few of the tracks and I could really put myself in your shoes, some of it is universal shared experience, some of it more remote but reminding me of how I felt about things a decade or two ago.  Sure, you could sharpen this up with a producer/promoter and once you've done a few shows or guested a few times on others raps and keep putting tracks together you'll definitely go somewhere if you stick with it.  But just keep it real, that's what makes it special, for me anyway.  And fakeness is what makes most hip hop lame, for me, anyway.

Hey everyone, I really appreciate all the feedback and compliments. I'm definitely going to stick with it and see how far I can go, even though I'll admit I don't have any really high expectations haha. I realize that the music is rough, and I'm trying to find a producer, or anyone who knows anything about producing ha.  And Zra, I'm going to look him up, thanks for the tip. If anybody knows of any other connections in the scene I would love for you to share. Thanks
