My personality is a hurricane, comes in many shapes and sizes. One thing will never change, and that's Isaac. I was born in Sudan and as a baby, my parents moved to Uganda where I lived for 11 years. Uganda is where I got my first taste of war, with an understanding well aware in the mindset. I have seen many dead people and had experienced enough terror that I am not afraid of death anymore. If it happens, it happens - that is beyond my power. In the year 2000, I stepped foot in America, thinking I knew life and how to live. I was yet again faced with learning how to live, for I knew and spoke nothing. Thanks to all my friends, I could relax because they only intended to make my learning experience fun in this new world. For three years, I learned by listening, watching, and trying to understand why America does what it does and for what reason. I never knew when that question had been answered; but somewhere along my journey, something clicked. Maybe it was because I finally excepted the American people as my own or because I finally excepted Ankeny, Iowa as my home. Whatever the reason was, I could now walk with confidence and talk with the most confidence as an Afro-American. I was finally released. Windows of opportunity opened as if I was given new powers. I could do anything. But with so much to do, what do I do? At this point, it was five years ago. I started to break away from my friends, simply to be alone to find myself. When you've lived in a different world for half of your life and the other half in another, you tend to lose who you are because you used to sound and act a different way and defend with your bare fists. Now I sound like this, rock-star swag but street so I sag like that. Don't know how, but somehow, God gave me a brand new bat. Music had always been my profession because I practiced when I cooked, through my art classes, when I spoke, and in my sleep because when I dreamt of music, I only lived to see my dreams come true. I pushed everybody away only to hear myself think. I was shopping for the dream I wanted to chase for the rest of my life. Music had always been the dream I was destined for but it was a destiny not chosen by me. I dug deep in my mind to see if I could find a different dream but nothing could beat my love for music. I have never written about myself because I was still trying to find myself. Now I know who I am. My name is HURRICANE ISAAC. I want to make the best music for me and for you to listen to. Thanks for the support.
