Spose is 26-year-old producer, emcee, and record-label owner from the seacoast town of Wells, Maine who Vibe magazine recently called “the next great white rapper.” His 2010 hit “I’m Awesome,” released via Universal Republic Records, went gold in two months and catapulted him into the national spotlight. Despite his glimpse of fame, Spose remains the humble everyman emcee with the uncommon skill set, or as ArtistDirect.com put it: “Think Jay-Z meets Weezer and you’ve got Spose.” His meteoric ascent also landed Spose on stages with some of the biggest artists in music including Wiz Khalifa, Drake, Weezer, Stone Temple Pilots, J. Cole, Ke$ha, B.o.B., and more.
In February 2011, XXL Magazine mentioned Spose as a “rising” emcee in their 2011 Freshman Class issue. Take a stroll into the snarky, sarcastic world Spose has created and it’s easy to see why. In his songs and his stage show, Spose manages to distill both the tragedy and the comedy of modern American life with dark humor and slick wordplay – and somehow make it fun as hell. . In 2012, Spose will release his third album “The Audacity!” on his own Preposterously Dank Entertainment imprint on April 17, 2012.

"Spose is able to self-identify as a weed smoker, to be the absolute best at self-denigration and self-slander, and still manages to come off sounding smarter and more impressive than just about everyone else.” – Portland Phoenix
