    I’m a young hip-hop artist from Norway with big ambitions. I’ve recorded 3 songs Professionally and I know this is a great opportunity for me. You’ll find the songs on my website.

    I first began to record one year ego so I’m kind of new in the game, but my fans in Norway have embraced what I’m doing and this can put my name on the map internationally.
