Hotel is one of my favorite artists emerging from the Bluff City.

Memphis rapper Hotel first came onto my radar with his video for “Black Mud” that actually premiered on ELEVATOR (but before my time here) and since I have been very interested in the development of Hotel, who continually proves to be an enigma in Memphis’ massive scene that he does not fit into stylistically. His new track “Real Right” mainly shows Hotel’s distinct bravado and his lyrical content proves to be nothing but grimy. The production is fairly simple with hard-knocking percussion and serves well for Hotel to do what he wants with the instrumental. Lil Lanky is also featured on this song and offers a solid guest verse.
