The Austin rapper who released his debut album earlier this year hasn’t dropped any of his levels of excellence in new follow up single ‘Hoodie Season’. The artist brings fresh air into a genre that almost seems at stagnation in 2020.
While the rest of the US is busy trying to hop on to drill beats about 5 years after the genre had its peak in the UK, Arod is focussed on cooking his very own recipes. And they’re tasty. So far, without exception.
The Austin born and raised has everything that you’d be looking for in your new favourite artist, as his storytelling pulls you into his world and makes him so easy to identify with for thousands of young listeners in the United States of America. In 2020, more than ever.
His latest Instagram posts and teasers have us anticipating more music soon, with the repertoire of the versatile 28-year old seemingly still not fully exposed.
Arod’s recent stories have us hopeful that he is currently cooking the next follow up to his album, that exceeded all expectations and put him on the map this year.
Arod is gritty, crafty and authentic. He’s the contrast to the current mix and the proof that hard work, and love for your craft can take you anywhere.
Talent is one thing but it’s usually the ones who are willing to put in the blood sweat and tears that separate from the pack.
Some say talent is the Ferrari, hard work is the insurance. Arod”s Ferrari is fully covered.
One of the most impressive assets of the newcomer is how comfortable he sounds on all of his tracks, thus the result of confident beat picking and a great harmony between the artist and the producers. It seems, Arod has found himself a team that works.
With everyone pulling the same strings, there is no doubt he’ll keep making it into heavy rotations to claim his spot.
We expect the next-up to follow up on his debut soon, although expectations are much higher now after his first record home run.
