Detroit is exciting right now with the swarm of new artists making noise in today’s mainstream music. While it’s underground has a long illustrious history of producing some of the greatest artists to ever bless the mic, we see another prospect arise in the producer/MC known as Info56. Allowing his beats to make the introduction, Info56 debuts his new instrumental video, titled, “SouthWest”.
Just in time for the Summer, directed by Southwest-native Arturo Riveras. In the video, images of the iconic and abandoned, Michigan Central Train Station, at sunrise flash in the opening scenes as Info along Vernor Highway – essentially turning his back on this cliched version of Detroit – to enter into the vibrant Chicano neighborhood of Southwest. Ascending into the morning, the sun shines on the everyday people fighting off the next wave of gentrification.
Brief background on Info56, Detroit artist, by way of Houston, Info56 has always had a deep connection to music. It wasn’t until he late teenage years that he learned to cultivate his love for music, and find his calling as a producer and MC. Building a following throughout the years, and perfecting his craft, Info56 continues to make strides with his music.
“SouthWest” is off the debut project of the same title by Info56. A beat tape filled with Info’s best work yet. A must-have for any up-and-coming recording artist looking to sharpen their skills over that signature new Detroit sound.
