Poised to officially put the city of Denton, Texas on the map, rising lyricist AV the Great has all the appropriate characteristics to turn himself into a rap luminary: a keen ear for incredible beats, a respect for the craft, an admirable pen game — all the while being cognizant about all the negatives and positives that are going on in the world, as well as in his immediate surrounding environment.
The Dallas/Fort Worth-representative, who is also the recent winner for “Best Souther Rapper” at the 2015 Underground Music Awards makes his debut here at the DopeHouse with the heady new visual for “Stay,” produced by-and-featuring the talented Tone Jonez. As AV officially puts it, this record is “heart thumping, blood flowing, breath taking, personal life shit, real rap at its finest.”
Somewhere in the world, The D.O.C. is smiling with pride.
