Hailing from the suburbs of Connecticut (yes, Connecticut), Chris Webby has established himself as the next up and coming light skinned rapper. Although he probably doesn’t want to be categorized into the “another white rapper” group, it is a label he has embraced, not avoided. Having already finished three mixtapes, Webby has caught the attention of Dame Dash (click here for video, skip to 1:30), and has opened for such artists as Lupe Fiasco, Joe Budden, Ghostface Killah, and Immortal Technique.
Garnering inevitable comparisons to other artists such as Asher Roth and Sam Adams, Webby has set himself apart with his lyricism. His clever lines (from Brazil to Alaska, they know me as a rappa’/stay fly/just turned in my application to NASA) and willingness to make fun of his complexion (eligible bachelor/your girl’s like a slice of cheese/all up on this cracker), set him apart.
With the release of his third mixtape a couple of weeks ago, Optimus Rhyme, Webby has cemented himself as one of the top up and coming unsigned rappers. Below are a couple of selected songs from his mixtapes.
