We’re starting a new feature here at DefSounds that we’ve been planning for a while now – the Unsigned Artist Spotlight. Aside from serving up hip hop singles and videos from established acts, we also want to use this platform to discover new talent.  If you think you’ve got what it takes to be featured in a future edition of DefSounds’ Unsigned Artist Spotlight,  hit up the Contact Us page and send us a bio and some music.

Unsigned Artist Spotlight for JUNE 2011: TYPE REAL

Type Real is and always will be the heart of the underground. Composed of two guys from the suburbs of South Florida our goal is to bring back the original hip-hop feel and sound.

Richard Recchie (Rapper Rich) & David Recchie (Dr. Wise) are the two members of the group we are cousins and best friends not only through music but through life. We have been rapping since 11 years old and recording music since our senior year of high school (2007).

Type real does not only consist of us two though, the man behind the music aka the beats is another good friend named Billy Coffman (Don Billz) another dude from the suburban inlands of south florida with the old school hip-hop appeal you can find his collection of beats right here @ Youtube.com/TheDonbillz.

I would have to say our major influences is definitely Wu-tang, Nas, Mobb Deep, Gangstarr and pretty much any artists from the early to late 90′s hope you guys enjoy the music. Peace - Rapper Rich
