As someone who is always looking deep into the underdog cities for amazing emerging artists, I possibly can’t deny the run that Virginia currently is having right now. Every region has its shine every now and then, and currently there are tons of artists blossoming from the state at an alarmingly fast rate–all with distinctive sounds as well. The latest artist who is seemingly traveling on their rise to fame would be Losk33. Making his Lyrical Lemonade debut, he is premiering his latest single titled “Lord Have Mercy”.
Losk33 started taking music seriously around the age of 13, and has been heavily influenced by some of the greatest legends alive, such as T.I., Jeezy & DMX. Produced by the ATL native Mercy Beatz, the production boasts a super grimey and slightly-distorted 808 that sweeps you off of your feet. Being able to find the perfect balance between catchy vibes and authentic street rap, Losk33 refers to his music as “Testimonial Turnup” music–being able to land right in the middle of the two. One thing that is so appreciated right now in the rap game, is the artists that are able to blend multiple aspects of hit making and being able to be a jack of all trades. All while being able to make you dance, Losk33 is keeping it as real as it gets at the same time. When asked about his creation of the record, he stated:
“It was a gift from God. Immediately after hearing the instrumental, something came over me. Ran through it a few more times, put pen to paper and the rest is history.”
