Mixing Shwayze-like beats, the caustic attitude of Kesha, and a tough version of suburban rap, Bostonâ€™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 Rothâ€™s hit â€œI Love College.â€� With the results posted online, Adamsâ€™ â€œI Hate Collegeâ€� 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 Bostonâ€™s Boy EP. The EP debuted on top of iTunesâ€™ hip-hop charts, driven in part by the success of the single â€œDriving Me Crazy.â€� ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
