Few and far in between are the artists that truly strike your ear as both authentic and wildly talented, but when you finally stumble on one, it’s always an unforgettable find. That said, arriving to our pages as the latest Graduation Music discovery today is an artist of this very caliber by the name of Pronto. And trust me when I say you’re going to want to remember this rising talent’s name, as he truly is something special.
Hailing from the sun-soaked land of Georgia, Pronto first crossed my screen earlier this year with his stellar mixtape, No Genre. The project is relentlessly self-aware and remarkably polished, shedding light on a sense of artistry that marks the GA representative as something far more intriguing than your average rapper. Pronto looks at life with a sparkling eye of wisdom that ranges well beyond his years, and in doing so, is able to communicate heavily guarded thoughts on the smallest and largest facets of life — all of which are presented in ways that emphasize the full scope of his lyrical abilities. The music is lyrically dense, but wonderfully refreshing.
Needless to say, I hold the utmost confidence in saying that Pronto is about to reach ears far beyond his home state of Georgia, and I can’t wait to see him prosper in the near future. Get hip to this promising act by checking out his latest visual release for the Earl Sweatshirt-sampling track, “Knight”, at the link below:
