The 24 year old artist, actor and songwriter has been solidifying his stance in the game for over a decade. His flow is melodic as he teams up with the harmonic Megan Simonton to ride the track to perfection. Produced by Skypp, the visual captures Naptown brilliantly behind the setting of the autumn sun.
