Makin’ almost as much noise as March 17th, Boston‘s own Samuel Adams Wisner – known as Wiz or Sam Adams – has been representing Beantown HARD. The 22-year-old has been pushing his own brand of hip-hop meets electric meets whateverthehell he wants…and he is getting noticed. Big time.
The Trinity College senior – and soccer team captain – not only puts up a 3.0 GPA but is putting up impressive sales online and in the streets right now. Throughout this summer he has held spots within the top 100 Billboard Singles and in the top 20 Heatseekers Songs. He sold 5,000 copies of his single “Tab Open” with zero promotions and zero marketing – a month before his Boston’s Boy EP was released. That’s some serious noise.
Boston’s Boy is a mix of numerous flavors, and contrasting the slow, haunting piano melodies on “Just Love Here” against the uptempo synth-and-drum heavy “Coast 2 Coast” – reminiscent of Shwayze – definitely put this brew at the top of the line. Boston’s Boy features production credits from Oren Yoel (from Asher Roth fame), DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill), Grammy Award-winning producer Maestro, and prolific hip-hop producer, Nottz. Nottz’ track, “Fly Jets over Boston” features 2009 XXL Top-10 Freshman Curren$y.
I hate college, but love all the parties / finishing kegs and crushing bottles of Bacardi
King of the Class, I’d rather lay up with a hottie / single doesn’t mean I’m lookin for somebody…
- “I Hate College”
He got his first taste of success with his “I Hate College Remix”, which quickly catapulted him to hordes of Facebook fans and Twitter followers. Those that have kept up with him have been treated so some of best new sounds in hip-hop; and now he’s back with more. His upcoming release, Party Records (co-hosted by DJ Whoo Kid and DJ Cash), has already garnered severe attention, and such, he’s dropped the first single, “Hold On,” produced by none other than Rusko.
Be on the lookout for some serious sounds from Sam Adams, and keep it locked on OrangeCountyConcepts.com; always bringing you the freshest juice for your headphones.
