Song writer, actor and hip-hop music recording artist, Moefire, knew he was born to perform after his first talent show in elementary school. “At that moment when I saw all those people excited and cheering for little ole me”, he said. “I knew I wanted the world to see me perform somehow”. His passion for music was fueled by the influential sounds and performances by artists like Michael Jackson, New Edition, Biggie Smalls, DMX, Jay-Z and a variety of others.
Moefire was born and raised in the middle of Brooklyn New York, in the area of “do or die” Bed-Stuy (Bedford Stuyvesant), a neighborhood that was surrounded by drugs, poverty and crime. He was named Roshead Claybrooks by his mother who suffers from mental illness and with no father around he was forced into a foster home at age 12, along with his two younger sisters. He was later adopted by his grandmother who was an off Broadway dancer and aspiring jazz singer. Fire started rapping at age 17, which is later than most given his lyrical ability and magnetic persona. With early hoop dreams and the urge to be on the big stage, after graduating high school at East New York Family Academy his life in crime on the streets was short lived.
Fire started his rap career in a group called Stuyboyz and built a local buzz performing at clubs, bars and lounges. They also created a wider fan base with their online presence through social networks and blog sites. In 2007, they released their first mixtape Ready for the Game and then again in 2009 with Blood Sweat and Swag. Moefire began on his own path after graduating from the Institute of Audio Research in 2013. This enabled him to hear and make music differently than other artists of his kind. As he continues in his journey Moefire has only one goal in mind and that is to make the world press play.
“I may not change the world but I will touch somebody through these lyrics and I know ya’ll hear me reaching”.
