Pros: Aggressive, clever and intense.
Cons: Would benefit from some versatility.
Essential Listening: Human Torch Vol. 1: Flame On!, “Jackin For Beats” freestyle.
With a voice reminiscent of a young Canibus, Santos’ in-your-face battle-ready style is captivating. You can hear the struggle and hunger in every single verse, and at just 20 years old, he has time to develop. He spits that grimy, ugly, vintage Philly shit with the greatest of ease. He also annihilated his Come Up Show freestyle (see above), so if you’re into a hybrid of Can-I-Bus and Sticky Fingaz, the self-proclaimed “Human Torch” is your guy.
