While Portsmouth (Timbo, Missy), Hampton Roads (Pharrell, Clipse), Petersburg (Trey Songz) and even the small town of Tappahannock (Chris Brown) have given Virginia hip-hop and R&B noteriety, the city of Alexandria hasn’t yet found nationwide fame. Underground emcee Thad Reid is hoping to change that, though. Previously featured on the Booth with Can’t Live Without You, the self-proclaimed ‘Voice of the Commonwealth’ is now Cruzin’ in his car, driving 10 miles per hour so he can get a good look at everything along the way. Right behind him is reggae hookman Akshan (see Sketch‘s Hi Hata), who seems ready to snag a few females over Ologist‘s laid-back beat. For every whip banger, there needs to be a slow-driving song; let’s just say that Thad Reid has evened things out.
