Interview: RGLND

By Alex Floro

If the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear Oakland, CA is “where the youngsters get hyphy”, let us help you out. Coming out of “The Town” is up and coming rapper RGLND (pronounced RAG-LAND). Departing from the stereotypical Bay sound that had been popularized nationally by E-40 and Mac Dre, RGLND gives listeners a new perspective. With beats give a much needed breath of fresh air, and lyrics to match, his career is definitely on a steady progression.

Recently, he’s been opening for the hottest names in hip hop, with shows with The Cool Kids and  Wale in November. Look out for his upcoming album Electric Daisy coming out Nov. 11, 2011.
Check the video interview out where we discuss how he relates to fans, his rise to the top, and why he hates to be called a “rapper.”
