Connecticut-born rapper Witt Lowry (Mark Richard Jr.) started his hip-hop career as a joke -- he entered a small talent contest, and his friends put the word out on Facebook, and he killed it -- but soon took it seriously. After graduating from Springfield College, he couldn't find work in his chosen field, graphic design, so he plunged into the music. Several videos on YouTube have garnered him tens of thousands of subscribers and millions of viewers. In addition, he released an EP and has followeed it with three full-length albums; the latest, "Dreaming With Your Eyes Open," was released on iTunes in the fall of 2015.
