Backseat Idol


19, Canarsie
Sound: “I call it electric jazz or ‘broadwave.’ It’s what Frank Sinatra would do if he was still around.”
Sample lyrics: “I’m lyrically lit on the time, shine, mine is like the sun better / When ya’ll make it rain, I flip the umbrella.”
Career status: Just graduated from Brownsville Academy High School.
How’d it go? “I freestyle in cars, buses, trains, so I don’t mind rapping anywhere. The van acoustics were just as fine as my tour van.”
