Most people don't know I: I paint. I have a background in TV, Radio & Film and double as a part time super hero
My style's been compared to: Eminem & Bizzy Bone (so I've been told due to the personal nature of my songs & delivery)
My standout records and/or moments to date have been: My video "El Animal Humano" running on MTV. My song "Locked In" getting LA radio spins & featured on sites all over the world, including an Australian compilation featuring Talib Kweli & more. All of my European & Central American tours, being granted the official Jehuniko shirt from Guerrilla Republik, being the 1st live hip hop show that many small towns on my international tours had ever seen, and meeting legendary human rights activists as a result of my music
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To spread words of empowerment & continue the cipher by being original
I'm gonna be the next: Me. Hip Hop has enough followers. I am inspired by those before & around me like Dondi, Kid Frost, DJ Disco Wiz, OG Seen, KRS One, Chaka, Cesar Chavez, Marcos & countless other trail blazers.
