Adam: "Recorded on an especially hot and steamy day (weather-wise, not love life-wise), this edition of The Adam B Experience has a few tricks up its sleeve. Don't worry, you're still getting all the high quality underground hip-hop goodness you've come to expect from the show, but you're also getting a little something extra. There's at least one artist featured in this month's podcast that you wouldn't expect to hear on The Adam B Experience, and a full explanation as to why I decided to play his music. I also go off on a tangent about music and the borderline imaginary notion of complete realness. Check it out! Follow me on Twitter at @AdamsWorldBlog or hit me up with feedback at AdamB@RapReviews.com."

Many hip-hop artists claim titles like Entrepreneur, Hustler, or Go-Getter, but none exemplify this title better than Lefty. Born Kareem Williams in South Philadelphia, PA, Lefty, the son of The Late Doo Wop singer Charles Williams From "The Turbans", began his quest to hip-hop stardom in 1998, rapping his heart out on the set of Philly Most Wanted video shoot for legendary producer Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes, heavily influenced by 2Pac, E-40, Eightball and MJG and more, as part of a South Philly rap group named Plead Da Fifth, including Takedown Records star Daytona, among others.
