Ishmael Raps, an 18-year-old emcee out of Rochester, NY, makes his Fresh Heir debut with “Intro To Fame,” an early release off his upcoming project, GALLERY.
I’m a fan of this record – the bars are engaging, the hook is catchy, the production has crossover appeal, and Ishmael’s confidence and control are strong all the way through. “Intro To Fame” reminds me of something Skizzy Mars would deliver, and that’s no knock on either artist. The track is produced by Toronto’s Talen Ted as well as Ishmael’s hometown friend and go-to producer Go-Rilla.
I haven’t heard much from the rising emcee, but I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more after this one. Stay tuned for more including news on the upcoming release, which currently has no release date. Stream “Intro To Fame” after the jump.
