Whitewash was born in a small town outside of Birmingham Alabama. He was interested in music at an early age, by the time he was 9 years old he was rapping Bible verses at a black baptist church in his home town. His continued to develop his skills as a rapper, writer & producer. Whitewash doesn't consider himself as "just a rapper" but a true artist. By his early teens he was performing shows from Atlanta to New York City in hip hop clubs, being the only white kid on the venue. He is often compared to Eminem, who along with Tupac & Atmosphere are his favorite artist. Whitewash's lyrics are real heartfelt, that's why his music is so greatly appreciated. He raps from the heart, about his problems & the problems of the world. And that's why his new album "The Awaking" is brilliant, simply AMAZING! This album is a must hear, just listen. Whitewash has a unique ability to rap from the heart, where you can feel his pain, anger & frustrations. This very well may be the best album of 2012.
