With today’s amount of mass media, pop culture icons have a tendency to seem as if they are all over the place. They take a glance at us from the covers of glossy magazines, have us at the edge of our seats both on the small and big screen, interact with us through social media networks and keep us in a trance with their inescapable platinum hit singles. But too often these days, while our biggest stars seem as if they are constantly in our lives, we feel no genuine connection to them or their artistry.
Yet Orlando Mitchell, better known as Emaculent, seems to be quite different. While other hip hop artist may be preparing for their next guest appearance, or rehearsing for tour, on occasion, you can catch a glimpse of Emac in your neighborhood block, free styling away with local MC’s. And even when things get hectic and the tour schedule gets brutal, he still finds time in his busy schedule to reach out and interact with his loyal herd of fans through means of his social media outlets. Detroit native, Los Angeles resident, rapper Emaculent, delivers the true representation of the art, the grit and the skills of a seasoned MC.
Unafraid to experiment and think outside the box, it’s his linguistic poetic imagery that captivates the minds of many. It’s as if he welcomes you into his life with open arms and allows you to have an upfront close up encounter with his world.
Now, as anticipation builds for the upcoming release of his debut EP, 15 Minutes to E, Emac reassures to leave a long lasting legacy, featuring a legitimate roster list with hit singles such as “Centerfold” ft. veteran R&B star Ray J., “Whatchu Drinkin’” ft. bay area hip hop legend E-40, and “Fool Wit It” ft. long time rap icon “Lazie Bone” Bone Thug N Harmony
While other artists feel they are obliged to fit the typical stereo type within the hip hop community, its Emaculent’s ability to connect with his fans by putting lyricism at the core for front of hip hop that keeps him relevant in pop culture
