Lost, The Artist is a local rapper with plenty of piss and vinegar and an all-or-nothing attitude. Each track has plenty of bite and venom, especially “Laced,” written about the drug culture in SLC. Love song “Ca. Girl” laments a lost love and articulates an experience that many Utahns can relate to as he raps, “When I’m done with California / I’ll come die in Salt Lake City.” Though Lost, The Artist exudes confidence, there is something humble about his declaration that he is a “hip-hop immigrant,” and he moves effortlessly from cheeky, mocking lyrics to more serious material. His articulation of life in SLC is reason enough to listen to Lost Boy vs The World, but his tight rhymes are equally impressive. –Ali Shimkus
