The Hip-Hop Studies department’s diploma program, now approaching its third year in existence at McNally Smith, offered a scholarship to Eric Wells, a.k.a. Soul Sathe. Wells graduated from Eau Claire Memorial High School this year, and has been rapping and producing for years. His first album, A Typical Discord, recorded with Minneapolis producer Sleepy E, was released two years ago. Wells was featured in an article in the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram recently on his musical background and future prospects at McNally Smith and beyond.
