810 - Pay Day
Here at the DJBooth, we pride ourselves on spotlighting emerging artists who are preparing to parlay underground buzz into mainstream success. Such is the case with Baltimore rapper 810; though he’s rapped as a hobby since the age of 11, it was only when others began to compliment his skills that he started to seriously consider a career in music. This month, the emcee plans to release his debut album, Supply and Demand. One of the most talked-about album cuts finds 810 rhyming with youthful enthusiasm over an old-school beat by Mydus as he anticipates his coming Pay Day. If this crowd-pleasing record is any indication, 810’s Pay Day should arrive sooner rather than later; DJBooth.net will, of course, bring readers all the latest on this Charm City up-and-comer.
