Where the fuck have you been, Alex Salveson? Holy shit. I’m going to name this guy “Sacramento’s Least Expected Yet Most Extremely Dope Rapper”. That’s literally how I feel after hearing his single, “Fiend”, and really digging into the rest of his music on SoundCloud. I had to ask Alex to tell me about the track. Here’s what he said…

“I guess I’ve just been listening to a lot of MDNSGN and Abstract Ninjaa and stuff like that. I wouldn’t say that the song has the vibe of those artists but that’s where a lot of my inspiration to create is coming from right now. I’ve been working a lot at my job that has nothing to offer me aside from the 10 dollars an hour. One day I came home and thought…damn I’m really on my own vibe. Not musically but just life in general. But at the same time I want the same things as everyone else. So is there a way I can achieve the same things as everyone else but in my own way? YOU CAN’T SELL ME DRUGS MR. METH MAN I GOT THIS DOPE SHIT IN MY LEFT HAND. (I’m left handed.) Idk…I’m trying to say smart shit but I’m also just trying to rap.”

And when I heard that from him, I was even more impressed because his inspiration comes from within our city. Rare. Keep an eye on this guy 100%. He’s @clean_edit on Twitter if you’re really trying to follow.

I grew up in Sacramento in a time where there was no young entertainment company like HOF to look up to. I met Tony in LA while I was managing LBCK in Long Beach. I kind of knew Damian from middle school. And I didn't know Byron even though we went to the same middle school. But when we first started partying together in 2011, it just made sense for me...someone who's passionate about the business side of music...to align with them...who're passionate about the business side of events. I believe what I'm doing here...running the site and the social media and the artist management/publicity and the label...is creating a means to better spotlight and support the emerging artists we truly believe in. They say no one's ever "made it" out of Sacramento. It's my ultimate mission to change that. As our boy Marcus says, "We're bringing Sacramento to The World...and we're bringing The World to Sacramento."
