I am a 24-year-old rapper/lyricist from Frederick, Maryland. I have been writing music since I was 9 and it has helped me get through a lot of depression, abuse, anxiety and so much more countless struggles. Without music, I can honestly say I wouldn't be here today! I pride myself on making real rap music that has meaning, not the stuff that is being played on the radio nowadays. Thank you for reading this and I hope you're having a great day!
Music is my passion. It is my outlet. Music is what I turn to when all else in my life seems to fail. I come from a broken home and had a very rough childhood. My Dad had a lot of anger especially after my mom left so music is how I really deal with everything that I have been through. There have been times in my life when I have had everything but not been making music and without music there is just something missing for me.
I want to be revered as one of the greatest lyricists of all time only surpassed by Eminem & 2pac. I would include Biggie and although Biggie is one of my biggest musical influences, he has always been much more flow driven. I would say I have a lot of inspiration from BIG that you can hear on my emphasis and flow.
I do want to change the world and I want to start with music and work my way elsewhere. I want to improve music so kids have something to listen to that isn't filled with hate, violence or just talking about how much money you have just because of getting lucky.
Lose Yourself by Eminem is by far the most memorable song from my childhood. I can remember watching that movie after it came out I must have been about 8 or 9. I had the song on repeat on my cd player and would fall asleep in the car with it on. After that and when I started writing rhymes I knew that I was meant for this!

I have always had a love for writing songs. When I hear a beat without the words to it my minds just goes. I have never really understood it but to me it's basically brainstorming out loud. I have always been very talented at freestyles because of my ability to put words and sentences together quickly.
I want to spread a message of love, peace, and positivity. That is not to say I don't have some songs with certain aspects of violence. This is because I find it necessary in the rap game to make sure you balance your songs of love and positivity with some songs that are a bit harder and have some edge to them so other artists know you are not soft so to speak. In the rap game, you can really get taken advantage of if another artist perceives you as weak.
My first few performances I was so nervous and when I got up there I couldn't stop shaking but I found the more I practiced even at home the better I got with my stage presence.
I see a lot of musicians nowadays either struggling and making good music but no money or it seems that a lot of people with no talent just make songs and everyone loves them for some reason. I don't really understand why some songs get so popular with no lyrics or substance.
I really like Drooble. I have been spending increasingly more time on here because I see the benefits. I would like to finish my album asap so I can upload all of it on Drooble and increase my plays even more!
The thing that frustrates me by far the most as a musician is not getting my music heard. It is even more frustrating when I spend hours, days, months and in some cases up to a year or two on a single song then no one hears it. That is one reason I am really loving Drooble because I have gotten more plays on here then I ever have on any other platform.
Yes, I like to support local musicians. I have a friend who is a rapper that performs down in Grand Rapids and he is very talented I have been sharing his music and trying to help him out.
I feel that as long as a musician is genuine that is the most important thing. It seems to me there are a large number of kids coming up now specifically in the rap/hip-hop scene. That are really just chasing the fame and money. They die their hair get tattoos and seem to really just be jerks just to get famous.
