Paradise In Hell – [Rob Hicks]
Rob Hicks is quickly emerging as the next upcoming artist out of Wisconsin, and recently, he dropped his debut EP laced with 8 tracks titled “Paradise In Hell.” Instead of your typical, banger-infused tape, Hicks new project is more-or-less a story of his lovelife, his relationships and some of the tragedies in his past-experience. On top of that, the EP features 4 notable names (Ted Park, BoodahDARR, Trapo & Olita) including impressive instrumentals throughout which came from a number of producers including Larkin/ Seym, KRS, Nate Maelz and Mike Regal who cheffed up the bouncy production for “Siracha” which is easily my favorite record on the project. With only two songs released on his SoundCloud prior to the tape, it’s pretty clear that Hicks career is just getting started; and with comparisons to Kendrick Lamar amongst others, there’s no telling what’s in store for him. Be sure to let the “Paradise In Hell” EP kick off your weekend and stay posted for more from Rob Hicks very soon.
