Austin Royale is the definition of the new wave of the underground wave of punk rap that’s been taking the internet by storm over the last year. Today Austin graces the Lyrical Lemonade pages with his new single entitled “Problems” featuring fellow North Carolinian rapper and underground favorite J.K. The Reaper and Goon Des Garcons. The first time I met Austin was at a music festival last summer in Charlotte, North Carolina and he was pretty chill and well mannered. But as soon as he hit the stage it was as if he was a completely different person. You could feel the energy emitting from him during his performance and the crowd reacted well to his set. One thing that will benefit Austin is become more consistent from each drop and continuing to build a good sound. He’s got the stage presence the attitude, individuality and some solid tracks behind. He just has to continue to put all the pieces of the puzzle together over time.
