Hott aka Melvin Shaw, Originally from Syracuse, New York, Arrived in Colorado in 1999 attending Colorado State University in Fort Collins until moving to Colorado Springs in 2007. Hott is one of those lyricists that has the ability to grab a listeners attention with less than 4 bars. A very poetic cadence with his style, his vocabulary is beyond extensive and that is displayed in every song. A good live show puts you in the moment, lets you focus on the present, and every time I see Hott live that is what happens whether Solo, with Audible or A Black Day. Colorado is growing rapidly, and so is the music scene inside it, artists like Hott will be one of those that will stand out in the future because who he is as an artist and what he creates as a musician. Underground Hip Hop is not glamorous, but it stands for something, it teaches, uplifts and inspires. Cats like Hott will keep putting a good name on this musical community, and that is why I feel he deserves your attention, (check out the video for “82 Bronco”, love that video..shout out to Grey Sinatra).
Hott is also one of the MC’s in the group, A Black Day which I recommend you all to check out as well, such a cool talented group of lyricists, I feel at home every time I play a show down in the springs with them. And if we’re talking about Co. Springs family I gotta give a shout out to my Weed Pimp Family always showing love!
We are proud to have Hott playing this Thursday, April 9th at the Armoury for a free show also featuring The Nights Lp Release Party, Kruza Kid, Suffers Beats, Babah Fly, Dr. Mean Beatz and Ill tact.
