Lyrically fresh, definitively raw, inspirationally captivating, and undoubtedly real! These are but very few of the many phrases that can be used to describe Corporate and his brand of originally certified, new age hip hop. With his versatile flow, tremendous life experience, and ethical/moral standpoint, Corporate brings a natural and universal appeal, as well as responsibility, to the hip hop genre. You can guarantee Corporate is embarking on a fruitful "Path 2 Success".
Growing up in the inner city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Corporate has been exposed to many harsh realities and joyful occasions. "As these aspects are two sides of the same coin, you cannot loose focus as one aspect shifts to the other, and vice versa." Rest assured Corporate has seen and done it all and is no stranger to hardship or hard work. "I am dedicated to my family and friends. Without them I wouldn't have made it through the many difficult situations I've seen so far in my lifetime. I certainly wouldn't be here. If it weren't for them, perhaps I would have fell through the stereotypical cracks and fulfilled the perception as a statistic, which so many have done before me. All I know is, my family gives me focus, and that focus assists me in my determination in achieving my goals."
Corporate has had a variety of experience in many areas from his adolescence to present date. From youth violence and drug exposure to radio hosting and shadowing agent reps. It is his experience and truthful representation of his perspective that sets him apart from other artists. "I believe too many negative attributes have been glorified in the hip hop genre. I'm not here to knock it, well, not totally, as that would make me a hypocrite. I have done some of the things these artists glorify. However, I acknowledge that this glorification doesn't promote the growth and development in our up and coming generations. It is because of this circumstance I attempt to make my material as positive as possible. I will either educate, uplift, or inspire in my own unique way, which will be receptive to our youth today." In association to that particular topic, Corporate truly see's himself as a "Sol Survivor" and wishes to extend that title to the many individuals who face hardships and difficult ordeals on a daily basis, just as he did. "There is always something to live for, there is always that one thing you truly love and cherish. Don't get me wrong I know it gets rough at times, so much in fact that it seems impossible and in turn you feel like giving in. But you cant give in, because as soon as you do that, the game is done, and your dreams are lost. You fuel your passions, you fuel your desires. No one can take that away from you unless you let them. I heard somewhere in an inspirational video, that the game is mental, the coach is your mind. Thats the truest shit I ever heard."
Corporate is currently working on a mixtape which will be available this spring. To hear exclusive samples please visit www.reverbnation.com/corporatewpg In addition, be sure to keep a lookout for his two singles "Sol Survivor" and "Path 2 Success" which will be available online very soon.
