Get to know the influences of one of Texas’ best up and coming rappers, Masceo.  Stay tuned for more with him soon.

Michael Jackson- Thriller
“Michael Jackson was the King of Pop and one of the greatest entertainers of all time. In my opinion Thriller is his best album with hits like “P.Y.T”. and “Beat It”

Kendrick Lamar- To Pimp a Butterfly
“The creativity of this album goes off the charts and its lyrics are both catchy and profound. It also takes a deep look into the black community from Kendrick’s point of view.”

New Edition- Heart Break
“New Edition is one of the greatest music groups of all time. This album is the epitome of R&B music with memorable hits such as “Can you Stand the Rain”.

Young Thug- Jeffery
“This album was a big step for Young Thug to move away from trap music. He features Wyclef Jean in a song titled “Kanye West”, one of my favorite songs of all time.” 

Kyle- Smyle
“This album mixes hip-hop with electronic music to create the perfect summer time music. Kyle is both a skilled rapper and energetic singer.”

Stevie Wonder- Songs in the Key of Life
“Stevie Wonder always provides uplifting music, this album is a classic! It has some of my favorite tracks including “Sir Duke and “I Wish”.

Smino- Blkjuptr
“Smino is an artist that is still growing in popularity but the production of his music is at the level of a high caliber artist such as Chance the Rapper. Smino will definitely succeed as he expands his fan base. Good music is timeless.”

Ty Dolla $ign- Free TC
“Ty Dolla $ign is a great musician and an even better artist. I like the topics that the album speaks to including the failure of the modern day correctional facilities. The melodies and harmonies resemble the style of an acapella group.” 

Revenge of the Dreamers 2
“This album includes “Folgers Crystals” by J.Cole, which I feel is one of the most lyrical sound hip-hop tracks of all time but it is grossly underrated.”

50 Cent- Get Rich or Die Tryin’
“This album was one of the highest selling in the early 2000’s. 50 cent came out with several hits from the album that still can get listeners excited to this day. It also features hip hop legends Eminem and Nate Dogg.”
