Remember when Hip-Hop felt good and rap music involved having fun and could even be described as uplifting? This week’s Artist Of The Week (A.O.T.W.), Storm the Unpredictable, not only remembers those times, he’s been creating them in Maryland for a number of years and is ready to explode onto the national scene this month. While continually performing at clubs, colleges, and showcases including Showtime at the Apollo, Nuyorican Cafe, the Philadelphia Music Conference, and Motown’s Black History Month Conference Storm earned himself numerous awards and accolades. The Washington Area Music Association named him their 2002, 2003, and 2004 Hip Hop Artist Of The Year and his music has received praise from publications including XXL, The Source, Elemental and Insomniac. Storm honed his skills with the D.C. Hip-Hop organization Freestyle Union and now a few singles that have charted all over college radio later he’s hitting listeners with A2: What Should Have Been, on Ty-She Ent./SPP Waxworks/Domination Recordings. Make no mistake, though he may have a lot of soul, this is no Quiet Storm. For the full Q&A, visit adambernard.blogspot.com.
