PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) Eric "Pistol" Combs is back in the iTunes top 100 for the second time in a year.
The Perry County artist first hit the charts with his album "Pistol." Now, he is back in the top 100 with a new EP titled "Roots."
"It's a lot different, this one than the last one. The last one I had a pretty big chip on my shoulder, and this time we got to get in there and have fun. I think on this album this one it has a lot more variety, each song is different than the last one, and that's what we were shooting for," said Eric "Pistol" Combs.
Combs thanks his supporters in Perry County and Eastern Kentucky for helping propel him back up the charts, but he also attributes the new success to the state of hip-hop, and the release of one of the best rap artists new album.
"I think hip-hop is just in a state right now that really benefited us. I don't know if anyone keeps up with it but Eminem just dropped an album called 'Kamikaze' and it's very lyrical, it's not club music. Our music is very lyrical it has a story and you want to hear the story and you want to hear the lyrics," said Combs.
