If you hear the term “white rapper” and you immediately think of Vanilla Ice, well… 1990 called and wants its Hammer pants back.  Over the past two decades, dudes with trace amounts of skin pigment have been holding their own on the mic.  Everlast, Atmosphere, MC Serch, The Beastie Boys, and Eminem are just a few of the more commercial examples.  Robert Matthew Van Winkle would be one of the less popular, yet memorable examples.  All of those dudes have helped paved the way for cats like Outasight, aka Richard Andrew.


Outasight aka Richard Andrew

Outasight hails from Yonkers, New York and as a teen he was heavily influenced by A Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli and Stevie Wonder.  Since 2007, he has been pounding the pavement honing his craft and pushing to get his music heard.   A heavy circuit of club, cafe and festival appearances has provided Outasight the opportunity to prove his musical prowess.  He has also mastered the fine art of releasing mix tapes.  To date, he has five solid tapes under his belt.  In 2008, it was an appearance on mtvU that brought him to the attention of executives over at Warner Bros.

Studio backing helped Outasight bring his first studio EP, Further, to the masses.  The six track EP has created some solid buzz all leading to his upcoming full album release.  Outasight delivers smart rhymes with a lyrical flow that doesn’t sell the listener short.  He simply speaks to what he knows and demonstrates that he is an artist with a clear vision.  Simply put, he is an innovator that is raising the bar in a genre that has become saturated with sound-a-like hacks.  Treat yourself to something different and be a part of a music career that will certainly make waves.  Scroll on down to the bottom of this post to find out how you can get your hands on his latest mix tape for FREE!
