First it was David Banner, then Big K.R.I.T and I would say that it’s safe to say, Mississippi is producing some of the dopest lyricists in the South and the entire Hip Hop game as a whole. EMI/Capitol artist, Tito Lopez reminds me of a young Esco when life was “illmatic”…This young cat is coming hard with a single from his latest mixtape, The Lost Files Of Tito Lopez, called Mama Proud, along with a video. Check him out after the jump.
In an earlier XXL article, we learned a little about the new upstart:
Name: Tito Lopez
Reppin’: Gulfport, MS (GPT)
My style and/or skills have been compared to: Greatness
I started rapping: At age 5 (to be like Kriss Kross)
My standout moments/records have been: Meeting and recording with the Dungeon Family & Dr. Dre. Favorite record is my upcoming single “Mama Proud.”
I’m gonna change the game by: Being exactly who I say I am on a record. If that “changes the game” then so be it, but that’s not my goal.
I’d like to work with: Anybody true to who they are, and who cares about the music. I’ve already met and worked with some of my idols.
My goal in hip-hop is: To be the voice of the UNDERDOG, and to represent them in every form and fashion.
I’m going to be the next: Breath of fresh air in a world full of smoke and mirrors
