About Mixtape: Awthentik is by far not your typical emcee. Writing, Producing, Recording, Mixing and Mastering every track on his latest release Popular Misconceptiontook him only 2 months to put together. On Popular Misconception, Awthentik breaks down many fustrastions, and opinions on modern day culture and how television and media play such a major influence on todays striving artists. Cliche rappers seem to find themselves more and more in a suitable costume for the buffoonery we see in mainstream rap. Awthentik presents a breath of fresh air with Popular Misconception, his third solo release. This project was a challenge in some sense for the Emcee/Producer/Engineer from Silver Spring,MD. Awthentik takes the 808 drumkit which is traditionally used for trap and pop music, to instead exclusively uses this kit to produce gritty, dirty, filthy tones out of his Akai MPC2000XL paired with Protools. Popular Misconception is sure to turn heads with its edgy lyrical content, and rugged beats.
