The Mohicans have been busy…with just about everything from juggling another year of school and prepping a debut mixtape to scheduling upcoming shows with some of hip-hops’ rising stars. Matter of fact, this Oct. 27, they hip-hop duo is playing at Austin’s Republic Live with fellow risers The Cool Kids and Milkman for free, which sounds like worth a trip to ATX for. And as for their mixtape “Uncas,” (which has some of the best album art I’ve seen in a while) they’re still not sure on release date, but it should be relatively soon. In the mean time, go vote for them for “Best Rap/Hip-Hop Group” at The Dallas Observer.
At a time where there seems to be a large crop of rising rappers on the horizon, The Mohicans are carving out their own niche. When you’re drawing comparisons to an early Outkast, you know you’re on the right track.
New Slang recently caught up with Davan Calvin and Dave Morgan for this week’s Last Place.
