Kevin Poptart “This Is My Planet” Mixtape

Boy Glasses Snapback Nerd Weird Teeth

Meet East Coast’s Kevin Poptart, a 17-year-old MC/producer prodigy with more beats and steez than sneakers and tees. Yep, I said it. With so many kids camping for kicks, trolling for social media attention and lusting for fame, I personally know “Poptart The Great” for being the complete opposite. For real and it reflects in his craft. Track’s like “Fingers Welcome” let me know that the self-proclaimed “weirdo” has a real observer’s soul and he really tapped into it for this latest project This Is My Planet. True, the title sounds a bit deceiving but, trust me, it isn’t vain. So take an interplanetary ride into the introspective life of New Jersey’s resident alien, you might dig it. Yo Tyler/Pharrell (or anyone close to them), if you’re listening, this kid’s definitely from your side of the galaxy!
