Mel Carter is a Popular Stranger that hip-hop enthusiasts should get acquainted with!
If his last name isn't a bit of a give away, the up-and-comer is Mr. Shawn Carter's nephew.
And Mel is adamant about circumnavigating around Hov's lane to find his own path.
With his new mixtape Popular Stranger set to drop September 19th, the kid is on course to do just that.
So much in fact, he released a trailer for his fans, and those on the horizon.
The trailer cuts from party scenes with some red cup action to the young rapper simply doing what he does best, spitting!
There's also a glimpse of what to expect on the project such as, his first single "Dark Shades," a "Way Too Cold" freestyle, and "Diamond Rings and Porsche's."
