EDITORS’ NOTES

The curious subgenre of "hick-hop" or "redneck rap" has been around for a while now, pioneered by artists like Bubba Sparxxx, Cowboy Troy, and Everlast, who ditched his original style for a more countrified folk take on his 1998 album Whitey Ford Sings the Blues. In recent years hick-hop has exploded in popularity, with rappers and country singers collaborating more than ever and new acts like Colt Ford and The Lacs topping the charts. Redneck Souljers (Fatt Tarr, Big Keel, and C-Hubb) are next up to bat, fusing contemporary rap stylings (skittering 808 drums, chanted choruses, Auto-Tune) with guitars, banjos, fiddles, and rhymes about farming, fishing, hunting, truck driving, and hard drinking. There's some compelling stuff here, especially the singles "Get Off My Land" and "I Mow, I Till." With their well-produced videos, catchy production, and surprisingly strong songwriting, these guys have the potential to be huge.

About Redneck Souljers

Hick-hop rockers from Winchester, Tennessee, Redneck Souljers are a duo featuring MCs Fatt Tarr and C-Hubb who came together in 2009. Originally, they were a novelty act, parodying popular hits and remixing songs in a hick-hop style, then in 2013 they went "serious" with their Tiller Gang release, although with songs like "I Mow, I Till" and "Rednecks in the Club," they were as "serious" as their party-lovin', mud-diggin' cohorts Bubba Sparxxx and the Lacs. Sparxxx landed on their 2015 album, Firewater, which also featured guest MC Outlaw on its title track. ~ David Jeffries
