Abstract

Spose (Ryan Peters), an indie rap artist from Wells, is profiled. His 2009 single “I’m Awesome,” part of a mix tape project with Cam Groves that expresses an anti-hip mentality, sold half a million units. His audience is working-class and he raps about Maine, money, fast food, esoteric literature, and ambition. He is his own manager, press agent, webmaster, art director, merch designer, and record-label president. His latest studio album, “Why am I so Happy?” is out in 2015. [images]
