Heataman, born Corey Holland, was born October 18, 1978 in Rocky Mount, Virginia and grew up in Suffolk, Virginia. At the age of 16, Heata was influenced by the artists who visited the show Rap City to begin creating his own music. “I loved to see them talk about what was on their mind whether it was about the streets, love, or politics.” Even as a young man, he was determined to make and leave his mark in the music industry. Heata describes his style as a product of his Virginian background; a mix of both the northern and southern regions--a smooth, yet piercing delivery.
With 15 years of experience in the music game, Heata’s music style has grown and matured into something any person of any age can relate to with story-telling lyrics painting vivid pictures in every listener’s mind. The reason Heata raps is simple: he loves doing what he does. His message is one filled with life experiences that he has chosen to share with his fans. “My message to my fans is to show them the things that I’ve seen, put them on.” Heata continues to work on his music and plans to triple his fan base by the year 2014.
