#9 — “Derek Luh”
Genre: HIP HOP
Label: FLY AMERICA (INDIE)
Derek Luh is a California based rapper that is slowly creating buzz in the music industry. Derek is a signed artist under ‘Fly America’, an indie record label founded by Mark Battles. Derek is currently under Mark’s wing and has released a few singles. His latest video premiere titled ‘Blow It Out’ features Dizzy Wright and instantly caught our attention.
Derek Luh appeared in Mark Battles’s new single featuring Wale and Derek is touring with Mark Battles across the U.S. Derek has a very unique tone to his voice and his flow is very good. White rappers are becoming more common and we think Derek Luh will be accepted in the rap industry and we will also predict Derek Luh to be on Schoolboy Q’s level of priority by 2015. This will all depend on Derek’s direction and if Derek continues to follow his current path.
We reached out to Derek Luh to get more background information but was unable to get back during press time.
