Jay Z continues to make moves with Roc Nation and on Wednesday added Levi Carter to the roster. Levi, a Virginia-based rapper by-way-of the Bronx, has been making noise and earlier this year released his ANTISOCIAL project. Clearly Roc Nation saw his potential and snatched up the young talent to build a future with. Levi has also stated in the past that his biggest influence is Jay Z, so the connection makes even more sense in hindsight.
Earlier this summer, Rapsody also joined the house that Hov built and did it in grand fashion during her performance at Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. Other Roc Nation artists include J. Cole, Vic Mensa, Rihanna, and Jay Electronica, so Levi is joining some good company and we wouldn't be surprised if he links up in the studio with one or a few of them down the road. Perks of being part of the Roc family.
Levi Carter christened the moment by dropping his Presence of a Lord EP. The 10-track project includes production from Digital Nas, Bravestarr, and more. Bump Levi Carter's Presence of a Lord EP below or grab it on iTunes. and stay tuned for more from the rising artist. He'll also be performing at this year's Made in America Festival.
