This is great, Matteo, thanks so much. And I call myself a Bostonian … born and raised in Roxbury at that, and totally forgot about this man. And wow, putting out such a positive message so young.
All I could ever think off top was Made Men w Benzino and The Wise Guys. Thought Guru was from NYC for the longest until I found out his dad was a judge (in Dorchester I believe). I think if an artist didn’t explicitly rep their city (or have an accent), I automatically assumed them to be from NYC. Sometimes there’s something very interchangeable about Boston and NYC even though they’re totally different.
Thanks for your pieces, showcasing a lot of unseen talent.
