Most of the time when up and coming artist in the industry have family ties they tend to piggy back off of their succes. That’s not the cases for NY MC Mel Carter….Can you guess the relation? If not, it doesn’t matter anyway. Mel Carter is talented and has the ability to make a name for himself if he continues to release projects like his latest. I first came across Carter a couple months back after I stumbled across his ihiphop interview. Listening to a couple records after the interview, I felt like was listening to Killa Cam and Juelz as one person, it was lightweight genius. The delivery, beat selections, concepts were all there….I was impressed!
Kid Carter dropped his Popular Stranger mixtape yesterday on Datpiff… Once again I found myself impressed . The project starts out with a dynamic composition produced by Maserati. Mel strings together countless bars throughout the intro — which undoubtedly left me wanting to see what else homie had going for him. Diamond Rings & Porsches along with Gold Bottles & Patron are two other joints that stood out among the rest. Mel Does make references to his family in some of his records, so if you still haven’t put two and two together I advise you to do some research and take about an hour and peep Mel Carter — Dude deserves his respect for his work on Popular Stranger. #NoGimmicks
