Urbane Spotlight -Sip Spitta-

Sip Spitta

Since Timbaland, Trey Songz, Missy Elliot, and Pharrell, when was the last time you heard of a versatile artist coming out of the VA? We could say Chris Brown, but lately his fame is based off tabloid than actual talent.
Here is Isaac Thompson aka Sip Spitta, Virginia born and raised. 
He showcases his love for a variety of sounds and genres with his mixtape Once Upon A Fall Line which has sampling from Dr. Dre's Next Episode with his song Get Your Hands Upand live band production similar to Jay Z's Show Me What You Got with his song I Won.
Sip Spitta has had the opportunity to open up for Theophilus London for ODU's Campus Chaos. 
His most recent single Morning After featuring Daunte Lyriq performed for vh1.
He is preparing to go on tour for a pilot for vh1 called 2 Turn Tables and A Mic by Shaun Nicole also featuring local artists such as Ms. Proper.
We overlook musicians with quality production and lyrical content for artists with a gimmick, mediocre rhyme schemes, and elementary production. Here is versatile artists from Virginia, and I know the DMV loves to support their own, that we should keep our eye on.
