In every hood across America there are a handful of children who hope to one day become superstar rappers. Unfortunately, for every one child who grows up and is blessed with the opportunity to record music as a profession, there are hundreds more who must keep dreaming. A member of the lucky minority is Phoenix, Arizona emcee Willy Northpole, who, after a fortunate business meeting with Atlanta icon Ludacris signed a record deal with DTP/Def Jam and is currently looking forward to the ‘09 release of his debut album. On his brand new single, Hood Dreamer, the always-on-his-grind Arizonian is assisted by frequently-featured Booth favorite B.o.B., and Grand Hustle in-house duo Nard & B. With one dream down, how many more will follow?
