Hick-hop? Rap-rock? Nah, categories are way too confining. Collectively as the LACS, Baxley, Georgia’s renegade redneck rap duo Clay Sharpe and Brian King create the kind of music that created them; a hybrid of elements drawn from raw outlaw country to southern rock to crunk hip-hop. That’s quite a fusion indeed, and one that captured the hearts and ears of those yearning for something fresh and relatable. “I call it the mix CD era, you put a little bit of everything on it,” Clay says of the eclectic vibe. “I feel like that’s how our music is and how it’s evolved.”
“I’m crazy about the 90s,” Brian proudly declares. “George Strait and Garth Brooks, and when the rap scene hit in Atlanta -that was a great time for music.”Similarly, Clay was shaped by the country and rock his parents loved, plus his generation’s input. “My own style was influenced by rap as well, from Outkast to Tupac,” he says. “It made us well rounded artists and appreciate a lot of genres of music.”
