I've featured Lil Mattress (who some of you may know as 5:am) quite a bit here, and there's a reason for that – you'd be hard pressed to find a more talented emcee who is having this much fun with their music.
Sure, there are lots of dope hip-hop artists, and there are even a handful of hip-hop artists who embrace their fun side, but with Lil Mattress, 5:am has cranked both of these aspects of himself up to eleven, and the result is one of the most entertaining projects around.
Check out the video his latest single, "Black Pasta." It has an equal amount of "oooh" worthy moments, and moments that will make you laugh. What more can you ask for?
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
