The Break Presents: Barak

Breakout: “Empire State of Mind Freestyle”

Also Check: “Dark Fantasy Freestyle”

And: “B.A.R.A.K”

Name: Barak

Age: 26

Reppin’: Brooklyn

My style and/or skills have been compared to: I really can’t say in regards to comparison, many of times the compliment that I have heard often at times, is that I sound original and I believe that’s one of the best compliments…

I started rapping: At age 18

My standout records and/or moments have been: My stand out records is my new single, “B.A.R.A.K” which is actually on iTunes right now, and the other one is a remix I did to the Frank Ocean “Swim Good” record. Stand out moments has to be the time I walked on the red carpet with the celebs, I was welcomed by everyone as a star, and it just so happens I was nearby and crashed the event. So I said that to say this, I feel this is where I belong, I shine now in the day…but very soon when the night falls…my brilliance will be noticed.

I’m gonna change the game by: I’m going to change the game by first changing Barak, first thing I’m going to do is grab their attention, once I have that I will have their interest, so that at the end of the day the listeners will answer that question for me.

I’d Like to Work With: The people I would like to work with are Jay-Z, Kanye, 50 Cent, Swizz Beatz, Diddy, Pharrell, DJ Khaled just to name a few, but I’m willing to work with anyone that has a great ear for music.

My goal in hip-hop is: My goal is to be one of the names they mention when they say, “Who’s the best MC, Biggie, Jay-Z or BARAK.”

I’m gonna be the next: I believe I’m going to be the next best thing. I can’t be anything other than who I am and that’s myself. Therefore I’m going to be the best Barak I can possibly be.

    i listen to a lot of underground rap and rappers coming up and i think this guy has some talent but not enough to ever be Jay-Z status. Listen to Jae Apollo or Hopsin for upcoming lyrically insane talent.
