'The Kentucky Talent Show' is Southern Hip-Hop at its Best.

Colin Shotts and Z1Letter team up to create an incredibly compelling portrait of life in the south while pursuing hip-hop stardom.

On the heartfelt opening track 'What's Mine,' lifelong friends Colin Shotts and Z1Letter welcome listeners into their world. Although the grooves are warm and laidback, reminiscent of a lazy day in the southern sun, the deeply felt poetry of their rhymes reveals a rare level of honesty and authenticity. They muse on their dreams of stardom and pursuits of romance, resulting in a fully immersive listening experience.

Both artists show remarkable versatility. From the trap-infused 'Wine 'N Dine' to the moody, minimalist beats of 'Out In The Cut,' each track boasts a life of its own. 'All I Had' is a thoughtful meditation on violence in modern society, while 'Surprise Surprise' shows off Colin's undeniable swagger.

Right up to the memorable closer 'Bass Pro Pyramid,' this album is pure southern storytelling with a distinctly modern perspective. A must hear record.
