The Redneck Souljers release their highly anticipated album today, Firewater with notable features from Outlaw and Bubba Sparxxx. Paving the way as the next generation to fuse country and rap, The Redneck Souljers display their true lyrical abilities with this project. Dark and foreboding lyricism, accompanied by hard hitting 808s, harmonica and slide guitar, Firewater, exclusively produced by Ed Pryor, pulls elements from rap, country, bluegrass and the blues.

With 11.5 million YouTube views, and over 3 million digital streams, The Redneck Souljers have come a long way since their parody rap video days back in 2009. Transitioning from comedy into true artistry after the release of their first original album, “Tiller Gang” in 2012, The Souljers, Fatt Tarr and C-Hubb have the following to prove that country rap, or as it’s been termed “hick hop” is no joke.
Live Q&A tonight along with the streaming premier of music video “Firewater” featuring Outlaw.
The curious subgenre of “hick-hop” or “redneck rap” has been around for a while now, pioneered by artists like Bubba Sparxxx, Cowboy Troy, and Everlast. In recent years hick-hop has exploded with popularity with rappers and country singers collaborating more than ever and new acts like Colt Ford and The Lacs topping the charts.
Redneck Souljers (Fatt Tarr & C-Hubb) are next up to bat, fusing contemporary rap styling (skittering 808 drums, chanted choruses and Auto-Tune) with guitars, banjos, fiddles and rhymes about farming, fishing, hunting, truck driving and hard drinking. A group originating with “country rap parodies” has surpassed it’s purely humorous beginnings – with catchy production, strong songwriting, and well-produced music videos to create truly compelling content.
