Born in July of 89, Samuel "ESSAY" Dabrio is a poet/rapper made in St. Croix and raised in the Sunshine State. Spending half of his life in Miramar, his style was first influenced heavily by the Mid-west and North rap rather than the "Dirty South". Rather then a goal for money, he has set his sites on the mere creation of a self-expression. Music is an art and a love... not a cash cow. His style is somewhat old school and yet remains futuristically retro (as oxymoronic as that seems). "After a while of spittin' fire, thought the flow got froze/ But now i'm stronger like Kanye with robot clothes/"
