From the Hometown He Rose is Thom Stockton's debut album. Here he sets the bar high with this high-energy, passionate proclamation of family values, belief in oneself & hometown pride. Taking stands against gun violence and for fatherhood, Thomas brings a positive message and unique sound to the hip-hop world. Through hardwork and an "Impossible is Nothing" attitude, Thom Stockton (a self-funded, independent musician) was able to work with some of his favorite artists on the project including Obie Trice, DJ Fresh, & Fatlip of the Pharcyde. If he can duplicate this effort, one thing is for certain, He is to be heard.

Track Name: What Matters Most is How Well We Walk Through the Fire

-Thom Stockton
Track Name: Same Team (ft. Curtis Young)
"Black & white labels are inaccurate folks. We're all shades of brown, but it's the blood that matters most. Cuz you bleed like I bleed, but can you see what I see? If not, then open your eyes and you will probably change your mind. SAME TEAM!"

-Thom Stockton
