If we’re going to play the “rappers who also love puns” game it’s going to be hard to beat Sean Price. After all, you’d be going up against a man who named his albums Jesus Price Supastar and Kimbo Price. (Ironically, Big Pun didn’t really drop puns.) But Guy Harrison may be an emerging contender for the rap-pun crown with the release of new joint Who’s That Guy. A young Jersey representative currently splitting his time between textbooks and rhyme notebooks at Syracuse, Guy makes his DJBooth debut with Who’s That Guy?, a fitting title considering the opening sample and impossible to ignore beat from Tyler “TyCo” Costantino. It’s a beat that Guy uses to lyrically explain where he’s coming from and where he’s going: “You talkin bout that Backhand Fam kid? / I heard he blowin up on campus / not just his but other states too / but he rep that NJ on his license plates dude.” Fans eager to learn more about Guy’s identity should check out his upcoming album Train of Thought (any relation to Reflection Eternal’s classic album?) when it drops on July 13. - DjBooth


Guy Harrison a rapper from New Jersey that's repping 'Cuse in the 315. Has shown some major talent but so far has only released three mixtapes with his debut being the better of the group. The young rising talent is gaining fans and exposure though. Expect him to become huge with one hit single or mixtape drop. Until then enjoy what he's handed out already. - College-of-Music


The way I personally listen to music is probably different than most. I take in the overall sound to ensure the beat is quality and matches the artist’s delivery. Once the song passes the general ear test, I critique the content and whether it’s applicable to the beat or even worth trying to digest. If the words are a go, I decide if said track meets my personal standards. Everything prior is strictly based on mass appeal and experience, factoring in as little opinion as possible. Most submissions don’t make it past the first criterion.

Drawn-out personal processes aside, I hadn’t heard a single song by Guy Harrison until he dropped his latest video for “This Tyme.”

The beat is sample-based and gripping, bringing a soulful Hip-hop serenade out of this New Jersey upstart. It emphasizes his poignant words and leaves listeners humming afterwords. Ear test? Check. As far as the content goes, Harrison’s words seemingly carry the weight of the world. His conviction feels irregular for someone with such a baby face. Considering the audible affirmation and my own penchant for tracks with class, all signs point towards the play button.

Don’t take my word for it. Check out Guy’s engaging tune below and see if he passes your own quality control. If so, his Homeboy Harrison mixtape is your next step and it’s available for free download here. - Beware

Bio

Started rapping around the age of 15, but really started my rap career when I was 17. For my first mixtape, I flew down to Orlando, FL to record what is known to be the start of my music career "Freshman Orientation," which was recorded by my manager and producer Tyler "TyCo" Costantino. I began to grow a small buzz in my area after that mixtape dropped, and then when August came I started my collegiate career at Syracuse University. "Freshman Orientation" caught the attention of some people while at school where I met my roommate Cartier Sims and one of my producers mattMiGGZ. A few weeks into school we decided to do a collaborative mixtape called "Backhand Fam," which dropped on December 3rd. After the collaborative mixtape, I began to work on my second solo mixtape, "The Deadline," which dropped on February 14th. After dropping The Deadline I was able to open for many artists such as Mac Miller, Chris Webby, Hoodie Allen, The Cataracs, and many more. As the spring semester ended, summer began. At the beginning of the summer, I flew back to Orlando to record my third solo mixtape called "Train of Thought." Train of Thought was recorded at TyCo's studio where a handful of producers brought together the beats on the mixtape. Train of Thought just recently dropped on July 25th which makes that my 4th mixtape in under a year. Since Train of Thought, I've opened for Aer, Cassidy, Asher Roth, Action Bronson, Tyga and Fabolous. I love the support and i love my fans. I'm gonna keep grindin for yall.
