    Sam Adams Isn't Just a Beer, He's a Hip-Hopper - He's a 22-year-old artist whose debut just soared to #1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart! Hoorah!

    Thanks to the support of fans, hip-hopper Sam Adams, who shares a name with a favored beer, several American historical figures and sorta sounds like Eminem as he talks about deep throaters, among other R-rated topics, has soared to the #1 slot on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart, leaving a trail of "How the eff did that happens?" in his wake. The 22-year-old's fans got him there, as his album Boston's Boy is currently lodged in the upper tier of the Hip-Hop chart on iTunes and he enjoyed 8,000 digital sales in just a week. While Boston's Boy was initially intended to be an eight-song preview of a full-length due later this year via 1st Round Records, the viral word-of-mouth on college and high school campuses created Sam-mania!

    Adams is still a student, playing on Trinity College's soccer team and he raps at campus parties and sporting events.
