I am not your average hip hop artist. I wouldn't even feel too confident calling myself a hip hop artist. I am so much more than that.
Some artists don't concern themselves with their listeners; it's usually about themselves forgetting about the larger picture, one of hope. This is where I shine and connect with my audience. I don't compare myself to other artists because I stay in MY lane, where I belong because it's mine.
Personally, I believe I'm here for the benefit of others. Of course, I was affected by the street scene and been a witness to its violence and corruption, but I found a way to rise above it without succumbing to the popular fate of death or jail time. The powerful messages in my songs are a breath of fresh air amidst an industry where the common themes of drug, sex and violence are the norm.
People ask me "What are you talking about?, Put me on game, help me better myself and my life." So I wanna give listeners the truth; the truth about life and the only logical way to go. I want messages that can empower, build and awaken our best selves. I think we’re in a time where we need it. This is the time God has blessed us with to choose how we will live our life.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Al Green, Marvin Gaye and DMX, I hope my songs succeed in capturing current social conditions while keeping my listeners moving to driving beats and hard rhythms.
