Standout: "The Stars"

Also check out: "Last Time You Cry"

And: "Touch It Bring It"

Name: Pierre Campbell aka PURE

Age: 23

Hometown: Newark, NJ

I grew up listening to: Coldplay, Prince, James Brown, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Marvin Gaye, R.Kelly, Timbaland

Most people don't know I: Produce the majority of the music you hear, and I'm a beast on that basketball court.

My style's been compared to: Akon and a modern day Prince. But I prefer to stay away from the comparisons. I just create music with no restrictions.

My standout records to date have been: "Body Talk", "Touch It Bring It", "The Stars", and the newly released "Infatuated(Throw It Back)"

My goal in Hip-Hop is: To provide a lane for other artists such as myself to create art without limitations. I have chosen this route because I was told that I couldn't. Hip-Hop has forever been a culture and lifestyle shaped from the soul of an individual and their walk of life. Hip-Hop was birthed on the premise that it would not last and it was a fad, but the culture proved that notion to be wrong. My ultimate goal in Hip-Hop is to continue to be me through music without losing sense of self.

I'm gonna be the next: Addiction!
