Rapper on the Rise: Cam Carter
Country Boy Takes on the Rap Industry
Up and Coming artist Cam Carter is making his way into the spotlight and establishing himself as a rapper amidst today’s music industry. From the age of 13, he began pursuing his dream to make music writing in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. This country boy gravitated towards artists like Tupac, Nas, and Lil Wayne. This sparked his desire to become a rapper. As a University of Mississippi graduate, he took his own educational path to the crime-infested streets to further his artistic path of becoming a rapper and make a name for himself.
