Artist of the day: Larcen
A member of the Umbrella Corporation, the hip-hop collective run by Aych, Larcen's fierce lyrics and razor-wire voice and hard-edge lyrics are intense enough to smash speakers from Ybor to the Skyway. "I for one am the aggressive, let-it-be-known type," he says. "I don't hold my tongue on any subject when it comes to my music."
But the Bronx native (real name: Victor Logan) still manages to mesh with the rest of the Umbrella crew. "The best way to describe it would be good chemistry," he said. "It‚Äôs kinda like waking up, walking to your closet and getting dressed ‚Äî you grab a shirt, a pair of jeans and a pair of sneakers that coordinate the outfit. We just fill in each other‚Äôs blanks."
Larcen is prepping a full-length album for the end of the year. Click here to check Larcen out on MySpace, and click here to get a taste of He Don't Wanna Fight Me, off his mixtape, Still On My Grind, due this summer. (Lyrics may not be SFW, so click accordingly.)
