Trendsetter’s newest client, The Lacs, is taking the music industry by storm with their “hick hop” and southern rock sound that is stronger than the moonshine they drink. Their newest video for “Make The Rooster Crow” will premiere towards the end of the month and fans are in for a treat.
The LACS, which is the famous short abbreviation of the Loud Ass Crackers, are from the sandy dirt roads of Baxley, Georgia. The LACS latest album is available for preorder on iTunes here.
The LACS consist of hip hop artist Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe and lead vocalist / guitarist Brian “ Rooster” King. The duo has been together since 2000 and Outlaw, which is their fifth album since signing with Average Joe’s Entertainment, is a watershed effort from The LACS that sonically broadens their musical scope and blends together every genre from traditional country and southern rock to rap and spoken word.
But it’s their true-to-life lyrics that paint a series of authentic compositions depicting the life of a pair of hillbillies from South Georgia. “We love writing about stories that we’ve lived,” said King, of their biographical 12-song effort that could prove to be a breakthrough of sorts. Sharpe added, “You won’t hear us singing about Bentley’s because we don’t know nothing about that. All we know are our stories and our family’s stories growing up. It’s how we relate to music. It’s like Johnny Cash. We love him because every song of his kind of told a story and you could tell it was real. That’s how we want to be.”
