Welcome to another edition of PoPolitickin Artist Spotlight. In this episode we politick with rapper, songwriter, performing artist Bishup Bicardi.
Bishup Bicardi,” is a rapper, songwriter, performing artist based in Boston, Massachusetts. Bishup grew up in a large family where he was the youngest of five children. The schooling process was a difficult one for him since he was never interested in the standardized procedure of education. He always knew that he was meant to do something different from the average with his life. He started by playing sports and attended all high school social events. If bishup’s classmates were to describe him at that time, they would have said he was a jokester, the class clown. His personality was always larger than life and entertaining, whether it be in a classroom or on a stage.
Bishup's first experience with music was at the age of eight when his older brother brought home the Tupac Shakur cassette called “The 7 Day Theory.” After spending an entire month listening to it, Bishup grew a strong love for the art of hip hop. The way the music made him feel was like therapy to the soul, it put him in another state of mind. Finally he knew just how to channel his energy and enthusiasm.

Welcome to another edition of PoPolitickin. In this episode, we politick with Charlotte, North Carolina rapper Mr. 704.
Marcus Frazier known to the Hip Hop Nation as Mr. 704 encompasses all things of his native Carolina. He has consistently served up a heavy dose of Southern Lyricism in the hip hop genre leading his city to become vastly known as a music contender. “ Mr. 704, a self-assured rapper with a slowed-down style, purposefully raspy voice and effectively forceful rhymes puncturing through garish beats. His panache is part hardcore rap, part Gangsta rap, with Crunk tendencies and a vibe that feels at home in the Southern hip-hop movement. More importantly, he is ours.” stated by Charlotte’s Creative Loafing.

Welcome to another edition of PoPolitickin. In this episode, we politick Atlanta space aged rapper Mellah Nix.
Born of a diverse background including Haitian, African Bantu, Chippewa, and Irish ancestry, Mellah Nix felt his true call to music at an early age, drawing influence from his blues-loving grandfather from Mississippi. From sketch pads to crafting design, his hands were always busy and involved in mixed media ventures.
Before his mother’s tragic murder at the hands of his stepfather, she gifted him the sobriquet of Picasso, likening him to the legendary cubist painter, and told him: “Your world is your own, let people see what you see”. After the heartbreaking incident, Mellah Nix went to live with grandparents in Chicago, where he came to true form.
Mellah Nix only moves at one speed, ventra à terre, and his artistry spans from resident artist at Art Studio Miami to working with media artist legends such as Kehinde Wiley on his “Faux Real” exhibition and having his contributions appear in Art in America Magazine. Recently, Mellah Nix endeavored to transition from visual to aural stylings, and released a mixtape unlike anything seen in our current times, ‘Sp8ceRap.’ Read more at http://hypeofflife.com/mellah-nix-interview/

Welcome to another edition of PoPolitickin. In this episode, we politick with Atlanta emcee Sir Hop.
Born and raised in Atlanta, Sir Hop cut his teeth in rap music while attending Auburn University. During his six year stint in Alabama, he released two solo projects: Square One (2010) and Greed Or Ambition (2011). Both LP’s were released under the name J-Hop. After the release of Greed Or Ambition, Hop turned his attention towards post production and mixed several albums/singles for several artists. In 2015, Sir Hop reemerged as half of the hip-hop group, RMVBM. After a critically acclaimed album and a small run of shows (including festivals such as Secret Stages), the group’s momentum ground to a halt as unsavory circumstances rendered the group inactive. Following the winds of change, Sir Hop returned to Atlanta with plans to release his newest full-length project, The Allure. The Allure was mostly produced by Sir Hop himself while serving as the first solo project since Greed Or Ambition. The Allure has since been released as of August 2017.Author Spotlight - Fayth Thomas
