One of my favorite things to do in running HHD is introducing completely new and dope artists to our audience. It’s few and far between that I do this because lets face it…the talent pool has been watered down. But I found a gem in seventeen year old Pharaoh Takari. That’s right, this artists is seventeen years old but he has an incredibly mature sound. And I am referencing the word mature not only to describe his voice but also content. His linguistic prowess is pretty advanced and very contrary to what I am hearing from other artists his age.
I listened to his album, A Peer Amid from front to back last night and it’s quite impressive. There are some little subtleties in the mixdown that can be improved upon but otherwise I think most in our audience will enjoy.
