News: Andy Mineo Named A Top Rapper To Watch Perform At SXSW 2016 by XXL
XXL Magazine featured Andy Mineo on a list which included Future, 2 Chainz and Young Thug counting down the “30 Rappers You Need to See at SXSW 2016,” the massive annual music festival which runs from March 15-20 this year in Austin, Texas.
“After dropping his well-received album Uncomfortable last year, Andy Mineo is bringing his spiritually-charged lyrics back to SXSW,” XXL said. “The ‘Hear My Heart’ rapper is performing at Half Step on March 16.”
Reach Records released Uncomfortable last September, and it sold 35,329 units in its first week and debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
Rapzilla readers voted Uncomfortable the Best Album of 2015 in our annual Christian hip-hop wards.
This praise from XXL came just days after Dallas-based Christian rapper LaToria received mention on The Source’s list of “11 female hip-hop artists set to shine at SXSW.”
