Suffolk’s good, “Quiet Storm” is making it happen. Quiet Storm, born in Bronx N.Y, his parents moved him and his younger brother out to Long Island soon after his younger brother’s fourth birthday.
At an early age Storm began cultivating himself as an artist. As a kid he idolized talent, Micheal Jackson, Boyz II Men and Usher became his first stage preformances. Tupac solidifed the dream in when his passion to bring Hip-Hop to it’s roots only seemed to encourage the young artist to learn everything he could about rap and the industry, until he could continue the dream as his own. He was talented but whether he could make it in such an industry would be too soon to call, even after his rendition of “Thriller” came before eyes of family and friends but it was definitely on their mind.
In seventh grade Storm reciveved a spot of critiscm that he counts to this day as his first professional review and it was made by his english teacher who praised his poetry. He pushed Storm to continue to write and write enough so that it would become clear what his strengths were and what his weaknesses are, he never gave up writing.
Storm had other talents but he never gave up on rapping. Hockey became part of his life and he was good at it. “I would just sit in the garage and stickhandle for hours, I’d do laps around this tiny garage at night and just move the puck around.” Storm’s freestyle’s often lead to locker room brawls or post-game fights, his raps got everyone’s attention, being a good athlete just garnered him more.
In his senior year of high school, after leaving two private schools he would have to get his diploma in an entirely different atmosphere. Everything came under attack here, his looks, his heritage, everything. Storm was never afraid or embarased to state who he was: “I’m like an inside-out Oreo… black on the inside and white on the outside.”
In his senior year of high school he was tasked wth a video project from one of his professors, thinking of no better way to earn an A, Quiet Storm shot his first music video and dropped it on the date the project was due. Every member of the group got an A and they all passed the class.
Since then, rap has been his main focus. Over the years he’s met with different engineers who have propelled his career forward. Storm has starred in several video’s since his senior project and has recently released three video’s under his own name. The most recent “Name in Lights.” His friends grew to become his street team and he’s never been shy to showcase his talent to anyone, promoters, hustler or haters. Eating, breathing and rapping has aged him from the boy at 8 years old, practicing hockey and brawling at the rink, to a “Quiet Storm” waiting for his thunderous applause.
