Hip-Hop / Rap
From majoring in graphic design to spitting some of the most powerful bars in the rap scene, Witt Lowry has certainly established himself as a rap artist quick on the rise. Born Mark Laurence Richard, Jr., he found his true passion after earning his degree in graphic design and adopting the stage name Witt Lowry - an amalgamation of his middle name and the word witty. So, it is no surprise that Witt Lowry's style of flow is exactly that. Quick-witted with manic and harsh delivery, Witt Lowry's early releases were reminiscent of the crass style of rap giant Eminem. However, at the heart of his music, the message is clearly hopeful despite tackling a range of difficult and personal topics. With the flow of Eminem and empowering messages akin to Macklemore, it is clear why Witt Lowry has become such an immediate fan favorite, amassing over 40-million spins on Spotify.
In September 2017, Witt Lowry returned with the impressive I Could Not Plan This, along with a fall tour supporting the album that we at Ones To Watch were beyond proud to present. Expect to hear much more from the blog favorite sooner rather than later!
September 18, 2017 It’s beautiful, gut-wrenching, and tear-inducing all at once.
