Born in Philly, PA on July 30th 1982, a young man with a lot on my mind and plenty to say started rapping at the age of 17 and hasn't stopped since. I started writing poetry when I was a kid, I never shared anything I wrote though because I didn't want to be made fun of or any of that stuff that a kid usually worries about. Around 16 I was given an electric guitar for Christmas, I begged for one after having discovered Jimi Hendrix. I was always very into music and art in general. Loved to draw as a kid, write stories, poetry, jokes, etc. But music was always the #1 passion.
A couple of years later I started to focus more on my poetry and slowly started to experiment with rap by recording onto a karaoke machine with some instrumentals. I was literally just playing around in the beginning, and it was obvious as the songs I did were a total damn JOKE! It didn't take too long before decided to start speaking my mind and heart 100% and I put out some songs that expressed the feelings of depression I'd been feeling during that time, it was like I was in a group therapy session and it was my turn to speak, I said a lot of true sh*t and it really felt great to get a lot of it off my chest. Of course, over the years since then I've sharpened my skills especially with my delivery, I don't have an amazing flow but I don't think it's totally crap. What's most important to me though, is the lyrical content and being able to reach some people and wake them up to reality. You know? Maybe get some breakfast while we're at it.
In 2004 I moved to the Chicago area and have been here ever since. Married with children and doing all that I can to keep alive each day. I'm constantly recording as you can see by the amount of songs I've uploaded. I record in the living room of my small apartment, at the moment that's what works best for me. Eventually it would be cool to get in a real studio to get some work done. There are a lot of things I'd like to do but right now it's all about 1 day at a time.
I struggle with bipolar disorder and believe me it's HELL of a struggle, if it wasn't for the music I would've never made it through a lot of dark times... Play all my tracks and check out the blogs, support the Revolution!
