Here’s another white rapper who is claimed to be the next Eminem…
The big difference is that the New York native actually has what it takes to elevate and be the next big thing in the industry. With the new project “The Debut Album” dropping you then gotta asked what’s he style? As with the mumble rap still being relevant. Does he stand apart from the new age rappers? Songs like “That’s Funk” and “No Tears”.
That’s Funk – Has sounds like a great flowing mix of Busta Rhymes and Eminem.
No Tears – Tells a deep story of young heartbreak and brings many old school, boombap vibes to the table.
Ayo hosts a Basement Bars freestyles videos that are posted bi weekly.
VMG had a moment to sit down with Ayo to talk about the new project and more.
