Watch for it... (Part 2)

Day 2 Ladies and gentlemen. I sure hope you all are payin attention. Everybody you see featured here is destined for big things. You think I'm playin? Just watch for it..

Number 6.

Name: Illiam Savant
Age: 20
Hometown: Boston, MA
: Hip Hop

Illy Sav, I been rollin with this dude since middle school. The die-hards in the Bean (Boston) will probably remember him from the Reality Click when my dude went by Tres. For the past month, myself, Ray Leon, and Ill, been at work on our different projects and we will be taking over for the Summer. Don't say nobody told you though.. Check for him on his myspace, twitter, and facebook.

Name: OTO
Age: 24
Hometown: Roxbury, MA
Genre: Hip-Hop

OTO (Overtime Often) of the Prime Suspects is from the same neighborhood as me (Roxbury, Eggy all day!!). Him and the PS click been doin it in the Bean for at least a few years and were some of the first young cats I saw doing music videos courtesy of Mr. Dante Luna. With not only raw lyrics and crafty delivery but a grind and work ethic that hasn't been seen in quite a while, I'm certain you'll be hearing from O and PS sooner rather than later. Give this gutter anthem, "Good Guys Neva Win" a listen, and watch for my cameo..


Name: Chilla Jones
Age: 24
Hometown: Dorchester, MA
Genre: Hip Hop

Another street-savy wordsmith with some things to say, Chilla and I got acquainted, once again, through, Sofia Snow and also Uno the Prophet. As much as MCs (especially in this city) love to hate on one another, I can't front on dude right here. The mixtape, Timebomb is solid and definitely somethin to check for. Him and I also been gettin consistent airtime on the Tito and Talib show at Emerson, hosted by somebody else that I listed here, (see if you can guess who).

One thing I feel obliged to make mention of here, despite the reputation my city has of artists not supporting, is that the next generation of artist to come up will, in fact, support, acknowledge and promote one another's work. Lets get to the next artist.. #watchforit

Name: Sofia Snow
Age: 21
Hometown: Roslindale, MA
Genre: Spoken Word / Poetry / Hip Hop

Anybody and I mean anybody who's seen Sofia Snow perform or heard her poetry has been moved by it. No exaggeration, Sofia's words are inspirational, healing, and truly uplifting. Currently attending the First Wave program at the University of Wisconsin, Sofia remains as committed to the community as she is to her art, organizing and volunteering in her spare time. I recently got the pleasure of being in the studio for the recording of her first Hip Hop cut and the joint is fire! Here go her video of the poem, 3 Witnesses.

Name: Starchild
Age: 22
Hometown: DC, Maryland, Virginia / Egypt
Genre: Hip Hop

Wake up and smell the gunsmoke.. All my conscious, Pan-African, Pro-Black, Revolutionary heads have got to check for this cat right here. I found this dude on myspace a couple years ago and immediately wanted to work with him. He's featured on Hip-Hop 4 Black Unity's Conscious Artist Database and his mixtape, Lion of the Desert is no joke. Lookout for the Catch Wreck/Starchild colab comin real soon. But in the meantime cop the mixtape and support the movement. #hollablack

And that does it for today folks. Tomorrow, 5 more young artists to watch for. Stay tuned.
