Sole - Insurgent Rap (prod. DJ Pain 1)

“Insurgent Rap” is yet another club banger produced by Madison super-producer DJ Pain 1. As the title suggests, it is a shot across the bow to the music industry & bullshit rappers. Sole talks about his own experience running a label, the perils of being a middleman, and the challenge of pushing content driven music in an image driven industry. In an era where major labels and ghost A&R’s have done everything they can to “astroturf” new artists and falsely paint them as indie successes, sole proves that although it is always a fight being truly independent it is the only real choice for creative control and longevity.
