This weeks On The Rise artist is P.A.N.D.A. from Springhill, Georgia. His musical style can be described as traditional east coast hip-hop combined with a saucy southern flow. I noticed P.A.N.D.A’s talent late last week on Instagram after I had heard, “Made For This”, and found myself bobbing my head as I was watching the newly released music video.
I was able to get in touch with P.A.N.D.A. for a quick interview. Read it below to learn more about his music and his plans for the future.
