Best Hip-Hop Act Orange County 2013 - Innate & EP
In this day and age, there seems to be a dearth of good times and positive hip-hop. San Clemente's Innate & EP stepped outside of the group Rock Bottom for a quick moment to offer much-needed uplifting rhymes. Live instrumentation, smooth deliveries, smart lyricism and golden-age-inspired rap beats frame the resulting album, Such As I, throughout its expertly crafted offerings. For as clean as it sounds, Innate & EP are even better live. No stranger to OC's stages, they've shared bills with veteran underground hip-hop heroes, as well as taking part in the Back to Basics Festival this summer. If boasts about "Bugattis and bitches" ain't your thing, Innate & EP bring hip-hop back to where good music does what it should: make people vibe right to this limited-time offer called life.
