San Diego is home to many notable industry names, like 90’s One-hit wonder Jayo Felony, Mariah Carey’s baby daddy, Nick Canon, internet phenomenon Snow The Product, Lil Rob and Mitchy Slick – to name a few. It’s also home to RP Tha Chozen 1, of the Rebel Genius Crew: a surprisingly lyrical new voice on the scene. His vocal cadence and flow almost put me in mind of Kendrick – with it’s trademark west coast swag – but still maintains its own personality and melodic vibe. Definitely one to keep an eye on!
On his latest joint “The Greatest Tragedy” RP spits a vivid rendition of the classic “forbidden love” tale of Romeo and Juliet over a viby beat, Produced by Carnegie – with guest vocals on the hook by Shaad G of Sound Collage Muzik.
He has a new album dropping September 15th called The Harvest. If it’s anything like this joint, it should be on your list! You can pre-order it here.
