Adam Charles Hadsall, better known by his pseudonym, AC, is a young, new rapper hailing from Kansas City. His witty and lyrical style are the things that have led him to create a buzz, not only in Kansas City, but also when he made his move to the southwest in Phoenix, AZ.
After getting a serious start with rapping during his freshman year of high school while writing humorous metaphors and rhymes during his free time, AC evolved and honed in on his craft. He started working with other local rap artists during his college years in Emporia, Kansas. Teaming up with a few local rappers, he joined a group called Midwest Productions-Get Money Clique and by performing locally, he gained a strong following.
After earning his Master’s Degree, he delved into the Phoenix rap scene head first, meeting and collaborating with local artist Manish Menace.
With musical influences such as Jay-Z, Immortal Technique, Talib Kweli, Bruno Mars, Tech N9ne, and Rage Against the Machine, AC has respect for all genres of music and never limits himself when it comes to creating his own. His raw and intelligent style is what continues to set him apart from other artists.
“I write for the purpose of being lyrical, and ingenious. If you listen to my songs there are always clever punchlines and twisted metaphors, which isn’t easy to do,” he says.
Back in September 2012, he released his first music video for his song entitled “Heavy Hittaz” with TallCat Studios of Phoenix, AZ. He continues to be focused on investing in his career and building his fan base.
He believes, “Music and art can express anything I want if delivered properly, and that’s the easy part.”
