Name: Dillon Cooper

I grew up listening to: Everything that my parents played at home. So there was a lot of R&B and soul and reggae played. I got really interested in Jimi Hendrix when I was about 12 and saw his Woodstock performance, then I got real deep into that. I really liked 50 and Eminem, that's why my first big concert was the ‘Anger Management 3' tour.
Most people don't know I: Snowboard.
My style's been compared to: Buck Shot/Big L/Lupe Fiasco.
My standout records and/or moments to date have been: “State of Elevation” has been a standout record, putting out my first mixtape Cozmik and headlining the Mixery Hip-Hop Open Festival in Stuttgart, Germany alongside Wu-Tang, and partying with them afterwards!
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To keep it alive and bring something new to the table.
I'm gonna be the next: Artist to make an impact not only on hip-hop, but pop culture.
