Avi Finkiel is so brand-spankin' fresh that he does not have a proper press photo yet to publish along with this blog post. But I don't want to wait for an image to introduce you to this party-starting, fun-loving and free-flowing New York MC who is about to explode onto the scene in a major way.
After uploading his DYI tunes to YouTube, the 18 year-old New Yorker has been working with savvy beatmasters like Teenwolf/Rofeeo from Ninjasonik as well as Easy Does It to further develop his sound.
And if that wasn't enough, he will go into the studio next month to record his first single with none other than the mighty Benny Blanco who has produced massive hits for people like Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Taio Cruz and Mike Posner.
Finkiel is a raw talent who has a flow, swagger and spitfire, crisp delivery that is uniquely his. This kid is so bad ass that you better keep a close eye on him to see what he does next. Listen to "Check It Out" to get a taste of what he's all about. The cut is a totally fun remake of The Buggles' "Video Killed The Radio Star" that sets the stage for more Finkiel hotness to come.
