Rapper & producer Ande Bishop is an artist on the rise, deemed by many to be the one to watch from the new wave of emerging artists in the Southern rap scene.
Since switching focus to his solo career only in January of this year having produced Londn Blue’s “False Hope” Ep in 2014, he has launched a string of releases specially featured in The Source, Mechanical Dummy, Elevator Magazine & Jack Thriller, while his first official video for his single “MoneyorFriendz” received airtime from both MTV and VH-1.
The young artist who splits his time working out of both Atlanta and Alabama signed a deal with Seven 13 Entertainment and is due to release his debut EP “Ocean$ – Extended Play” on 19th May.
He recently spoke to London journalist Taytula Burke for the UK’s online publication God is in the TV Magazine where he discussed the influence of his mother’s love of hip hop & in particular Tupac, his dedication & work ethic for music, and the inspiration J Cole’s self produced album has been in his own approach. With early aspirations to be a criminal defence lawyer, he then explains the reasons behind the change of course into music and his writing and recording methods
