One of the most underrated regions in hip-hop is the Greater Boston area. Despite loads of underground talent, such as Akrobatik, Termanology, and REKS, the upper Northeast has never gotten its ‘major shine.’ Looking to give The Rap Life a positive spin, and help his metropolitan area get some props, Providence, Rhode Island’s Jon Hope steps up to the
mic. Accompanied by the classical-mixing of producer Statik Selektah, The Rap Life, while not expected to get very much radio play, should nonetheless be a favorite among fans of conscious rap.
