HipHopDX Premiere: Brownsville, Brooklyn MC Ho$ef debuts his first single, “Light Years,” which appears on his forthcoming full-length, How I Became Solar Vol. 1. The album drops November 29 and finds influences from Jay Z, Biggie, 2Pac, Nas, and Kanye West scattered across the LP.

Raised by a single mother, Ho$ef was forced to develop his own definition of a father figure through his environment. As he grew older, the rapper, better known as “Bubble,” received the name Ho$ef from his desire for money and keen fashion sense.
