Just because you’re not from Chicago doesn’t mean you can’t roll with the Chicago hip-hop scene. This is proven true by Foss, a New York native who has made a name for himself here. After he graduated from Syracuse University, he moved to the Windy City and landed a job with iHeartMedia shortly after. Since then, he’s been doing nothing but big things. Inspired by rappers like Andre 3000 and Eminem, and with a sound like Kid Cudi and Childish Gambino, Foss has caught the attention of hip-hop fans everywhere. He has played shows all over, and just this year got to play the most memorable show of his life at SXSW.
While his fan base may be growing, Foss has clearly stayed grounded. Music, according to Foss, is what keeps him sane. When he’s not writing music, you can probably find him writing stories or expressing himself creatively through another outlet. His goal? To just keep telling stories through whatever medium he can.
You can see Foss this Wednesday, October 12th at Red Line Tap.
