If you’re from the Bay Area, L.A. or Rosewood, Calif. you might already know about Alexander Spit. You might have seen him rocking his The Hundreds gear, sifting through the bargain bins at Amoeba Music or even seen him perform with his old crew the Instant Messengers. No? Yeah? Well, now’s a great time to get to know more about the 25-year-old rapper/producer.
On January 29, he releases his first album with Decon called A Breathtaking Trip to That Otherside, an almost entirely self-produced effort with features from Action Bronson, Mr. MFN eXquire, and E-40. Yeah, it’s going to be awesome. It’s an album that’s born from dark times, drug use and yet Spit calls it his “most cohesive” release to date. Have you seen his mind-bending music video for “A Breathtaking Trip” (NSFW) yet? Those are real shrooms. That’s real Jack Daniel’s. And, yes that’s definitely real weed. That was Spit’s 25th birthday. The year 2013 has only just been begun and it has already been a good one for Spit. After Jan. 29, it’s only looking to get better for the young Californian spitter.
Buckle up as we take a trip into the mind of Alexander Spit.
