ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a Spoken Rap Performing Artist that combines the melodic tones found in rap music with hard-hitting conscious messages that spoken word delivers. I inspire, empower, and restore the village tradition of storytelling all while combining motivational speaking techniques that moves people from being passive to finding their voice around issues that are close to their heart.
 
I use my writing skills as a way of healing myself and the community. My writing and performing uplift’s people’s spirits and gives everyone a platform where they can vent, heal, and grow. My goal as an artist is to perform and speak all over the globe and to shine a brighter light on spoken rap so that this art form can gain more recognition. The purpose of my work is to leave a legacy of truth, honor, and wisdom that will be passed down for generations to come.
