According to those who know the Fayetteville, North Carolina MC, Randy Watford is the “personification of a celebrity in the making.” Whether you like it or not, Watford has cultivated himself into a necessity, and thus it is no wonder that the man known as Rain seeks not only to nourish his own talents but to effect growth in the game as a whole. Saying “Hello” to haters and comrades alike, Rain executes line after line with the swag of a trapper over a kick drum-thumping opus from The Inkredibles. Since securing co-signs from several of his better-known industry colleagues, Watford has kept thirsty hip-hop fans drenched in strong hooks and defiant lyrics, and the gift of gab he displays on Hello makes the record a potential standout single from his forthcoming First Impression.
