Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Things are looking up for Milwaukee, Wisconsin native Lamont River. The rapper/songwriter is prepping to make his presence felt in what may seem like an over-saturated market. "A lot of music is here today, gone tomorrow, especially in rap because there's no substance," he says. "What I'm trying to do is bring back skill, songwriting and truth to rap music."

It all started in 1989 when Lamont River borrowed a VHS tape full of hip-hop videos from his uncle. Instantly captivated by the likes of legends such as LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy and many more from the now legendary golden age era, it wasn't long before Lamont traded his hoop dreams in for music stardom. By '93, he was reciting some his favorite lyrics from his favorite artists. By '95, he was writing his own rhymes and penning his own songs. Since those early years, the emcee who some affectionately call "Tha Folkz" has performed all over the country and shared the stage with rap titans such as Ludacris, Fat Joe, Ying Yang Twins, Outkast, Jeezy, Snoop Dogg and many more.

With his latest single “Ride Fly� prepping release, putting the finishing touches on his as-yet-untitled EP and working on a group project with long time rap partner Scony G, Lamont River plans to outwork his competition and out-rap his haters.
