Hip Hop is evolving, take a look at Raury he's 18 and his work so far draws on on Gospel, Hip Hop, alt folk, Rap and Freakfolk Raury is a free-spirited singer, rapper, guitarist, songwriter, and producer who was raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia, roughly 20 miles outside Atlanta. He mixes alternative folk, rap, and electronic music while counting the diverse likes of Chance the Rapper, King Krule, and Lorde as contemporaries. He's a trippy kid who has sort of a "new age poor swamp people" optimistic view on life. It's sort of contagious. Check out this companion track to Devil's Whisper, God's Whisper. it's Beck, The Flaming Lips, Violent Femmes, Kanye, and a little bit Rocky Horror Picture Show! How does it translate to live performance? Check him out on Late Night With Colbert and check out the fun and weird bit on Sway In The Morning as Raury freestyles over Outkast's "Elevators" He's also made some straight out of the 80's stealing from the 70's feel good pop with Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine
