Gene the Southern Child – Smackman

blame it on Shake May 14, 2014

Introducing Gene the Southern Child, an emcee from small town Florence, Alabama that has a knack for crafting smooth Southern hip hop cuts with a variety of poetry, blues and soul mixed in.

On July 8th, he will be releasing his proper solo debut, Southern Meridian, through Adult Swim. Produced entirely by Parallel Thought, the LP is said to be an “amalgam of rich storytelling, provocative social commentary, booming beats, and impeccable production” inspired by Cormac Mccarthy’s crimson-soaked novel Blood Meridian.

Check out the first offering “Smackman” below.
