The Break Presents: Epic

Breakout: “I Don’t Need You”

Also Check: “In The Air”

And: “White Boy”

Name: Epic

Age: 22

Reppin’: Los Angeles, by way of Fontana, CA.

My style and/or skills have been compared to: I’m not really into comparisons but things I’ve heard people say would be Jay-Z and Kanye. Those are two of my favorite artists so my style is heavily influenced by them.

I started rapping: I started really taking this music stuff serious in 2007 when I released my first mixtape Rude Awakening. Ever since then I’ve been releasing projects online and in the streets.

My standout records and/or moments have been: My stand out project would have to be the Long Story Short mixtape I released with DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar. It reached over 30,000 downloads nationwide and got a lot of major blog recognition.

I’m gonna change the game by: Remaining authentic and humble no matter how far I make it. There’s nothing worse than meeting someone you admire only to find out that they really don’t give a damn about you. I never want to give one of my supporters that feeling.

I’d Like to Work With: I’d have to say the legendary miss Erykah Badu and the old Mase.

My goal in hip-hop is: To be one of the greats and to be the voice of the middle class people. I feel like I bridge the gap between gangsta rap and the flashy stuntin’ style of rap.

I’m gonna be the next: I’m not aiming to be the next anyone. I just want to be me and be understood and embraced by the masses on a loyal and dedicated level.

    Reallly? Jay-Z & Kanye? fuck outta here. he’s garbage and sounds like any rapper XXL has got to make it harder for rappers to get on this site because this is a disgrace. Rappers like Epic congest the game and make it harder for real rappers to make it. Straight trash. “EPIC FAIL”
