“Of all the Columbia emcees watching the throne of scene leader Fat Rat da Czar, H3RO is better poised than most to rise to the top of the city’s too-often overlooked hip-hop landscape. Like the superheroes he idolizes, H3RO is two men in one — by day, he plays the role of the underdog, complete with classic nerd interests and a flamboyant sense of humor; but when the cape goes on, he charges the mic like a lyrical bull, eloquently venting frustration and moxie while self-doubt and hubris do battle for his soul.” — Michael Spawn, Free Times
“H3R0 is one of the most inventive hip-hop artists on the local scene, mixing comic book mythology, a frantic, tense flow and some serious lyrical vulnerability into a persona that stands out among the typical braggadocio of rap.” –Vincent Harris,Free Times
“Set to an effectively simple and gritty beat, “Tragic H3RO” — the latest single from the Columbia emcee — pulses with wounded braggadocio, lashing out with barbed intelligence at a country struggling with old prejudices and an industry rife with obstacles to success. It’s a bold new mode for H3RO, who has previously eased his harsher points with charming nerdiness.” –Jordan Lawrence, Free Times
