Mixing Shwayze-like beats, the caustic attitude of Kesha, and a tough version of suburban rap, Boston’s Sam Adams caused quite a stir in 2010 when his debut album topped the iTunes hip-hop charts the week of its release. Sam Adams -- his real first and middle name -- was a senior at Trinity College in Hartford when he decided to inject some attitude into Asher Roth’s hit “I Love College.” With the results posted online, Adams’ “I Hate College” made the rapper an Internet star in 2009. It was followed the next year by the underground mixtape Boston's Opening Day plus his aboveground debut, the Boston’s Boy EP. The EP debuted on top of iTunes’ hip-hop charts, driven in part by the success of the single “Driving Me Crazy.” ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
