About
I am a Hip-Hop artist who also runs a record label that houses an up and coming rock band. I am a college educated SESAC affiliate who released a couple projects in the past, but took time off to focus on the business aspect with limited resources. Now that I have established my business foundation, I am ready to return to songwriting, performing and collaborating. Although I am primarily Hip-Hop, I am not limited to that, as I am also a lover of R&B, Rock, Jazz and Reggae.
