Prepare for the rise of Fort Worth, Texas’ own Six2, who you may have heard on West Coast classic, Chronic 2001. The rapper Six2, who is named for his height, tells us a little more about himself and what he’s working on. Although some mistake the rapper for an LA lyricist, Six2 is actually a product of “Funky Town” Fort Worth, Texas. His first exposure to hip hop came from his older brother who trained him early on with classics like KRS-One and NWA. Their “Gangsta Gangsta” is what inspired Six2 to begin writing. The artist got his start with El,Dog they collaborated on GenaCide with tracks like “Waste Uva Color”. Erotic D introduced him to fellow Texas rapper Tracy Curry, better known as The D.O.C. It was The D.O.C is who plugged Six2 with rap legend Dr. Dre. Six2 is featured on Chronic 2001 hits “Xxplosive” and “Bitch Nigga”, which feature Dr. Dre, Kurupt, Nate Dogg and Hitman. The well-respected rapper has written songs for The Pussycat Dolls, “Wait A Minute”, as well as worked closely with multi talented producer and rapper Timbaland on the first Shock Value. The skill of Six2 allows him to come off to his audience as a conversationalist who rhymes. “I feel that rap has lost its message, rappers no longer have substance. Now it’s all about what you have and where you go, poppin’ bottles in the club…but I plan to change all that.” Six2 wants the hip hop community to see him has the hit contributing artist that he is. His latest project, Concrete Evidence is available on iTunes and eworldent.com. The album is a personal stamp for Six2, letting people know what he is capable of doing musically. Concrete Evidence features icons such as The D.O.C, Snoop Dogg, and Houston’s Devin the Dude. Look for Six2 to continue xxploding through your speakers.

How was it growing up in Fort Worth, Texas? Six2: It was Cool, But it was rough too. Due mainly to drugs and gang Violence. Which thankfully is not as bad now as it was then. Now they have programs for kids to go to and spend their time so they are not in the streets as much. How did you become involve with hip hop? Six2: I grew up listing to all sorts of different music. In my teens I was in a group called GenaCide (Six2 & El Dog).

I didn't have no lawyers, no team behind me, nothing just a pen and a pad. What business advice would you give to aspiring artists? Six2: Get you a team of people that have your back 107% and want it for you just as bad as you do. READ YOUR PAPERWORK! With a LAWYER.
