Meet Bad News Brown from Montreal. As he tells it, the harmonica was a way to overcome his lack of mic skills while still vibing to the sort of beats that capture the hearts of hip-hop fans. It's actually a surprisingly unique mixture. Check out his first video for 'Reign':
"I started out rapping and doing spoken word," explained Brown in an interview. "I'm no Drake. I'm no Jay-Z. I'm no Lil Wayne. I knew that was the competition. For me to try to step in the ring and try to box with people of that caliber would be futile. It's just not gonna happen. Certain people I knew in my own entourage, I couldn't even beat on that level... I decided to step off the scene and do something in the background."
