With over five years vested in music journalism, I’ve had the privilege to sit across from some of Hip-Hop’s elite and conduct interviews. In my travels I’ve come across some personal favorites that will always be remembered but for me, there is nothing greater than chopping it up with an artist who is independent. Not only is their talent well represented, but the mindstates of these individuals are evolving to match those of the most successful entrepreneurs.
On Sunday afternoon I got the opp to chew the fat with BART LITTY, the game’s newest MC by way of Jacksonville, FL. Bart has been on a tear since his arrival in the industry and under his own label S.O.S.E. Inc. (Sell Our Own Selves Ent.) he has generated a buzz unlike any other he’s experienced since entering the game in 2015. Litty’s upcoming project OutkastBabies is a culmination of his collective energy towards both Hip-Hop and business.
Two months removed from FYN Records, Litty soaks in his newfound resurgence. “I see a lot of potential in the cities that I travel to and all it’s gonna take is the right person with the mindset to change the environment around them.” Bart quickly absorbed what the Circle City has to offer and alongside his brother AFresha teamed up to produce the track Indy 500 which is receiving great reviews while paying homage to the greatest spectacle in racing.
Litty represents a new wave of artists with a mindset unlike their predecessors. Through S.O.S.E. he intends to scout for talent that needs to be recognized. It was refreshing to hear that at 27 years old he recognized the absence of pure creativity in Hip-Hop. “There aren’t a lot of storytellers in music nowdays like Slick Rick so I’m working to bring that back to the game.”
Bart’s sound and swag compliment one another on the track Lasta Luego. The singles presented from the project are picking up steam and will also be in rotation on Straight Official Radio. Litty intends to be a mainstay in Hip-Hop and is an artist that commands your attention.
