The Astronomical Kid Grows Up on “Don’t Test Me”

Reality Rocks

The Astronomical Kid Grows Up on “Don’t Test Me”There's yet to be a real breakout star from Season 1 of "The X Factor" (winner Melanie Amaro's album never even came out), but I still believe that that year's seventh-place MC, Astro, really has a shot.

Although Astro is unfortunately no longer with L.A. Reid's Epic Records, he keeps hustling and building a career for himself in the real world, outside the reality bubble.

Yes, the Astronomical Kid is growing up before our formerly cathode-ray-addled eyes, transforming from the brat who sparred with Simon Cowell to the fully realized rapper behind the DJ Shadow-produced new single "Don't Test Me." The cool track (from his forthcoming mixtape) deserves more than just a test-spin, so check it out and play it again and again:
