Avatar Frost brings a fresh virtuosity to creating & producing music through genre-bending conscious hip-hop. Hailing from Charlotte, NC, he labels Jay-Z, The Beatles, Lamb, & Makaveli as his influences to begin creating songs. Listeners have dubbed him a lyrical assassin after checking out his hard-hitting tracks.
Intro, the Avatar’s last music video, takes the audience on an introspective trip through the human psyche with an electro-rock sampling of The xx. His latest single, Floyd, is an enthusiastic amalgamation of hip-hop & acoustic-pop in honor of the boxer by the same name. Mimosa, his upcoming single to be released in Fall 2018, will convey a new dimension of his lyrical prowess with unforgiving bars & driving beat.
