Virginia Rapper Flair Is Planning A Scorching Summer With ‘Street Pastor’
Summer is here so you know what that means…rap album releases are going to be at an all-time high! Often the rap industry is compared to sports like basketball and football in regards to its level of competition, however unlike these sports the rap “game” has no playoff or championship season. That’s when summer comes into play. Summer is when it’s blazing and everyone under the sun is outside. Sound systems are out, clubs are flooded and convertible tops are dropped for sure. So, who’s taking the cake for best project of the summer? Well—let Flair put his bid.
Flair is the 24-year-old rapper out of Virginia, Alexandria more specifically, looking to make a name for himself on the hip-hop scene. In just two years, the unsigned artist has made an impressive buzz about himself in the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) metropolitan area through a collection of singles, videos, and projects. Flair has just announced the release of his next project ‘Street Pastor’ which will drop in summer of 2022. ‘Street Pastor’ will be Flair’s fourth mixtape, and the first of his in 2022.
The Virginia native hasn’t made mention of any guest features on the project but very yet may surprise us with one, still rolling off the hype of his 2020 collaboration ‘Smash’ with the late Maryland artist, Goonew from Flair’s project ‘No Love In These Streets’. Videos for the Street Pastor album are certain and Flair’s camp tells us that they’ll be dropping a slew of videos all season. This should come as refreshing news to listeners considering that no visuals were released for Flair’s last mixtape ‘Revenge 2’. The 10 track project ‘Revenge 2’, (Flair’s sequel to his debut mixtape ‘Revenge’) saw moderate local success and included singles ‘Wow’ and ‘Top Floor’ but ultimately didn’t seem to resonate popularly throughout the region.
Flair is in an interesting situation right now. With no superstar namely coming out of Alexandria, Virginia and with the DMV already being overlooked on the national rap scene as is, Flair is wading in an untapped market right now that’s just begging to be taken advantage of. Currently independent, surely a rapper like Flair could catch the eye of any label with the way he markets himself on Instagram, dresses, and by the music he makes but only time will tell what length the artist will go to succeed. With a bit of discipline, focus and a whole lot of hard work this young gem has the capability to be recognized as one of the greats in the music industry. Flair, we’re rooting for you.
