In late 2015, the Wisconsin rapper Rob Hicks joined the ‘ThriftSoul’ collective, and has been very selective with releasing music ever since. In late 2016, he made his official label debut by releasing two new tracks “Perception” and “SYNERGY”, which caught the eye of many hip hop platforms worldwide. The two releases have made Rob one of the top artist coming out of Wisconsin right now as well as landed him his first distribution deal. Rob’s shifty flow, unique voice cadences and the ability to switch from high to low effortlessly has earned him a number of Danny Brown & Kendrick Lamar comparisons as of recently.
Paradise In Hell is a project that Rob likes to describe as a “project about lust, wrath and sorrow.” The EP features capitol records signee Ted Park, Trapo and CCM member BoodahDARR. With production being handled by Air Kalo, Medasin, Mike Regal, Nate Maelz and more , Paradise in Hell serves as a great introduction for Rob into the music industry!
