There is a growing sentiment in the industry that the Internet is killing hip-hop. While file-sharing sites that leak albums are certainly to blame, the Internet is also responsible for finding new acts who otherwise might go unnoticed (Soulja Boy, Cassie). Case in point, Metafore, an 18-year old Brooklyn lyricist who has made his presence known thanks to MySpace and Youtube. On his new buzz cut, I’m A Beast, Meta lives up to his name and sends a message to his boastful competitors (”Apple Computers is the only damn Mac you’ve touched”) and The Alchemist gives his seal of approval, providing a classic-sounding beat to compliment Meta’s introduction into the mainstream.
