    be interesting to see how he does… he’s obviously talented… but will having been on X factor hurt his credibility in the hip hop world… only time will tell?

     It’s been so long since we’ve heard anything from him, him being on a X factor really doesn’t matter anymore. He’s pretty much an unknown artist, putting out mixtapes before albums which is what hip hop artists do. From the looks of it I don’t even know if he’s still signed. X factor just got his name out there but other than that he’s on his own.

    I find it nearly incredible that the X-Factor has fairly dismal ratings (compared to Idol or The Voice), yet I feel like I see more of its alumni popping up than any of the others.

     I like the lyrics of this song referencing ppl assuming he fell off considering we don’t hear about him. IDK he could become big one day but it’s going to be a challenge for him.

    You can see a little Jay-Z there, I’m digging the background music.

     I don’t know if Astro still has his record deal.  But as you noted, most rappers drop a few mix tapes before they drop an official album.  This could all be a part of Astro’s musical development plan.  Astro takes himself very seriously as a MC and he probably wants to do this “right”.

    Meanwhile, he still seems to be actively pursuing acting.

    possibly… however as and when (or if) he were ever to get any push from his label (assuming he has / gets one)… then we will be reminded he was a reality talent show contestant… and that may hurt him with the hip hop audience he will be trying to win over

    Good thing they got something out there before puberty hits him like a truck.

    Kid aint going anywhere.  I hope he stays in school and gets a degree, he is obviously smart, it would be a shame to see the spiral he could take when his youthful-rapster schtick gets dryer than it is already.

    Astro is very talented.  Not my cuppa but oh so talented.  I wish him much success

    Good song. He would be perfect to bring back good rap again. But I think nobody is willing that. They want to hear Chris Brown, Tyga and 2 Chains over and over again.

    Was he dropped? Appearantly, he isn’t with Epic anymore.

    I just really like this kid!!  He definitely has the flavor of ‘early rap’ which attracts me quite a bit personally.  I hope he can hang in, find sufficient support and  get his stuff out there!
