My practice is music. I’m a hip-hop artist, a multi-genre music producer, songwriter and DJ who advocates for justice through rhyme. I create a significant amount of music that inspires hope and change in people’s lives for the better. I feel the weight and obligation of being a responsible music creator. This just means that although I like to provide great beats, the lyrics are the most important to me; responsible lyrics with substance and value. Whether subtle or blatant, lyrics that have a positive meaning are a huge requirement when creating songs.
It’s my desire that my music goes beyond temporary satisfaction and towards something that sticks to the listener, while withstanding the test of time. Music with messages can resonate and transcend generations, and hip-hop happens to be my medium to reach, inspire, teach, and advocate for justice. Musically as a hip-hop artist, many times I project pictures that reflect and mirror struggle, pain, hurt, tragedy, poverty, and/or violence, yet advocates hope, justice, victory, and triumph. My goal whenever discussing social ills through song is to also highlight the solutions to those social ills. I’ve never underestimated the power of my music and I’m very aware that my voice through music can make a difference. Using my music to make a difference in the world is a part of why I was born.
