Up & Coming Artist: Theophilus London

For some reason Brooklyn really knows how to raise musicians! This weeks up & coming artist is the rapper and producer by the name of Theophilus London. Growing up in New York he was exposed to the sights and sounds of the big city which have influenced his music greatly. For the track "Why Even Try",  which features Sara Quin from Tegan & Sara, Theophilus described the song as "Notorious B.I.G. meets Jackson 5 meets Rick James". He wanted a deeper sound that would be easy to dance to and that is exactly what he created a few months back. More recently the rapper has been recording in the studio working on his album "Timez Are Weird These Days" which will be released in July. The single "Last Name London" has a energetic bass with gentle vocals backing his twisted rhymes. You'll be sure to know his name after this track.
