A lot of struggle led up to Throwing Rocks, the free album Columbus rapper Themidas Touch calls his “magnum opus.” That struggle is still in progress — the climb to attention and accolades is especially steep for a scrawny white dude whose only hip-hop bona fide is hustle — but 'Throwing Rocks' looks set to be a significant milestone along the way.
The past few years have seen significant gains for Themidas Touch. He’s opened for everybody from Clipse to Machine Gun Kelly and performed in front of execs from a dozen big record labels. Now he’s releasing his best collection of work, one built around the political rage of leadoff track “Warbucks.”
Throwing Rocks is not entirely a protest album. Global social unrest acts as a prism for Themidas' own quest for success throughout the album.
