C Wells might not have tracks on your phone yet, but he’s trying to reserve some space in the future. This young emcee reps Lynn, MA an area just outside of Boston; it’s nicknamed the “City of Sin,” and the fact that Boston gangster films Black Mass and The Departed were both shot there, should give you an idea of the burg. Wells is set to be the star that sheds light on this vice city’s burgeoning hip-hop scene.
C Wells, dropped an 8-track mixtape of freestyles entitled Dear, Summer in July 2016, on which he murked the season’s biggest beats and got listeners anticipating his imminently approaching album Before The Tour Bus. This upcoming effort illustrates the grind that goes into a successful career; before stardom’s inevitable arrival. Not to mention, it is hosted by Mr. Co-Sign himself, Don Cannon. Before The Tour Bus includes features from G Herbo & Dave East and production from C-Sick.
“It was about the middle of February, and I’m about half way thru the project at this time, and I was sitting on a song I knew had the potential to be a hit” C Wells commented to Mass Appeal. “I had already finished one verse, but I needed one more [verse]. My partner Chy told me he wanted to make a record with East and me happen and this was the perfect track. Of course, I was down with it, but coming from where I’m from, things like that usually don’t pull through; but Chy reached out, and Dave was down. I got Dave’s verse and ‘Off The Porch’ was born!”
