Don’t let their ages fool you. 2 City, made up of 17-year-old rappers Clayton “Hollywood” Fowler and Mark West, sound like polished artists with years of experience. Their advanced lyricism, confident flows and rugged yet smooth production makes them one of hip-hop’s most promising acts.
Already buzzing in their native St. Louis, the two city boys are in the midst of recording their debut album, which stands to be one of the most impressive debuts from a teen hip-hop act. Indeed, Hollywood and West had enough clout in their region to secure production on their album from e3 Music, who currently working on Murphy Lee’s new album. They’re also heating up the local St. Louis scene, having performed spot club dates, opening for several major recording artists as well as at a benefit for football legend and humanitarian Jim Brown. .
