hmv's Next Big Thing... #19 Ho99o9
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you speed metal loving hip-hop duo Ho99o9...
Who Are They?
Ho99o9 (which is pronounced Horror) are rappers Eaddy and TheOGM. They hail from New Jersey, they formed back in 2012 and they took SXSW by storm earlier this year.
Who Do They Sound Like?
This isn't straight up hip-hop, there's no bling, no chains and definitely no Cristal. This is tough, raw and nasty hip-hop over rumbling bass lines and thundering beats. Inspired by the likes of Bad Brains, early Suicidal Tendencies and Rage Against The Machine, all stirred together with a dose of Black Flag and a dollop of Faith No More.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Because they make bad ass hip-hop and, by all accounts, their live shows are absolutely insane, like people hanging off the ceilings insane.
Can I Hear Something?
Their latest release is the powerhouse 'P.O.W (Prisoner Of War)/No Regrets' and you can hear it below. Their debut EP HORRORS OF 1999 is due for release on June 8th.
