HEAT MAGAZINE DRAFT PICK SERIES Part 1: ROCKSHOT, TNC TORCHA, JIMI CLEVER

The Heat Magazine takes a closer look at some of the  “draft pick” artists from New Orleans.  Periodically, we will showcase the latest endeavors of these talented emcees as they create bodies of work for our readers and their fanbase.  Although several artists are bubbling on the music scene in the Crescent, The Heat Magazine breaks it down for our readers and allow you the opportunity to gain more information on New Orleans’ plethora of talent. We are certain you will recognize the uniqueness and gifts in New Orleans’ 21st century artists as we bring them to your attention through our anayltical features.

First up is Rock (Rockshot), one-third of the well-known, award winning group Da U Boys.  Rock is a versatile/lyrical visionary with range to appear on eclectic music but often finds his niche in reality based street music.  Lately, he has been doing several features, working on solo mixtape, and continuing the successful grind with 17th Snoop, Hick Louch, and Strait Jigg.  He has also worked on 0017th project with Nesby Phips and Reem.

Next up is Jimi Clever.  Jimi is a lyrical visionary as well and he offers a talented and unique skill set.  The subject matter is not the same “old” warmed over soup.  He is comfortable in presenting his Audio Journals mixtape series while accentuating social commentary and real life issues.  His latest Audio Journals 5 mixtape was recently released.  Be sure to get your copy.  Clever is far from a let down.
