Remember that freshman who freestyled for Lupe Fiasco two months ago? Tate Tucker (COL ’14) has been busy since then, gaining great exposure in the rap game. He was interviewed by the hip-hop media giant, The Source, about his experience with Lupe and his upcoming projects.
And last week, Tucker slapped another huge mention on his resume, a post on Pigeons and Planes. It is a great blog that we recommended before, and an absolute goldmine for the best up-and-comers of the rap and indie scene. His freestyle over the euro- dance track, “Alors on Danse” was featured with some hearty praise from the guys at P&P. If you aren’t into the music blog scene, we promise that its an impressive achievement.
But Tate isn’t resting, Vox asked what was next on his plate,
My next project is my first mixtape which I am recording with fellow freshman Will Henderson–a very talented producer. That should be dropping early April and I’m really excited about it.
Can’t wait till April? Go see him perform on February 25th at Epicurean for $5. Another DC group, Rising Suns will also be performing. Tate and Vox both agree, it will be a great way to get hype for the Syracuse game the following day.
“I got my priorities/Tate Tucker’s raps don’t recognize the majority.”
