Its a perfect blend of new age hiphop and with a different style of rapping
Any plans to hit the road?
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
by conducting a series of trial and error on every song i do.
I dont go into the studio and freestyle and instantly say its a hit : theres levels to this
Im willing to bring Hip Hop back even if i got to use these new style of hip hop producers to make it popular
lyricism is still the main branch of writing
