I will start this review off with a disclaimer of my own: Rap is not really my genre, so Peyton Sanders, an 18 year old rapper from Atlanta, has given me a lot to think about. An up-and-coming artist and entertainer who cares a lot about his fans with a famous saying of “Never Give Up, Never Give In, Never Let Go”.

Sanders began on YouTube as many musicians do these days. He quickly established a fan base and is surprisingly still unsigned. One can definitely hear the sound of his inspirations in his music: fellow rappers such as Jay-Z, Eminem, and Justin Timberlake. His EP ‘Underrated’ is a proud display of originality and love for music, Sanders is easily and freely able to express his emotion through his engaging tone and respectable style.

Out of the small EP, the song that stuck most out to me was “Moving On”. I found it to be the song with the most meaning and originality in the lyrics, and is a song most everyone can relate to. The song, being a good four minutes long, was nice to listen to and was refreshing.

I believe the Georgia State native has a lot of potential to grow into a greater artist. With thousands of fans and only a 5 track EP out currently, I know he will go far. The strong establishment he’s already built will just keep growing, and his music will progress and become more involved as time goes on, as all great artists do. I would personally give the EP a three out of five, and since I know he has just begun and is trying to develop into a stronger rapper, Sanders will not fail in bringing more stylish hip-hop to the table.
