Born & raised in Kansas City,Mo. To William E Clifton a.k.a SEDATED, music was something that was never chosen by Sedated; Music was that special something that chose him. Plagued with a life of poverty, street-life, and dead end jobs, Sedated has managed to work his way up through the ranks on an independent level. He has performed multiple shows around the country and continues to do so with limited resources. Sedated is not considered to be labeled one particular genre even though he is a Hip-Hop driven entity. If you listen closely, you can hear multiple influences within the Sedated project. Sedated is one who will never claim to be the best in his art-form: only the difference. Music comes first, music comes second, and anything after that is more work on music. Music is the power that saved his life and he will never turn his back on it.
