Antwon is a Bay Area cat who took his musical cues from much of the Bay’s hardcore scene before honing his craft in hip hop. Antwon brings the scene’s DIY aesthetic to the game, and with crucial co-signs from other alternative rappers like Ratking and Le1f, Antwon is seeping into hip hop’s consciousness. “Metro Nome” is a track from his May release Heavy Hearted In Doldrums and is steeped in the kinds of vaporwave synths familiar to all too many rappers flexing on SoundCloud. But don’t let that fool you, both Antwon and Wiki (of Ratking) bring bars on bars. Watch the visual in the player above, courtesy of WorldStarHipHop.
Apparently, Antwon is in a pretty celebratory mood after seeing the video land on World Star. Make sure you catch him on his stoop tonight.
