My music and lyrics are feeling based. This simply means I draw on experiences in my own life and also the lives of others to paint a picture for the listener. I write believeable lyrics that my fans can relate to on an everyday basis. A majority of my writing is based on things in life in general.

Biography

Blakk is an independent artist and entrepreneur. This Texas native turned Californian has a sound that is unique among Southern-born rappers. He has been described as one of the up and comers in Hip-Hop by friends and family members. Growing up, he was exposed to all the greats in R&B, but in the Hip-Hop/Rap genre it was names like Kurtis Blow and L.L Cool J that had the strongest influence. He penned his first rap in 1985, but was primarily a writer of poetry at that time. Though not considered a "gangsta rapper", when West Coast "gangsta rap" landed on the scene thats when he began writing raps as his preferred form of expression. He was a drummer for several groups before eventually forming the band InFirmary in 1992. He eventually landed the spot as drummer for rock and roll oldies band Black Star in 1994 and played venues in and around his hometown in Amarillo, TX. Currently residing in Sacramento, CA, this artist currently doing venues in the Northern California region to showcase his talent. He has only been in the industry proper since late 2004 and has gained the experience needed to maintain his career. His diverse background combined with this experience has given him a type of "West Coast meets Dirty South" sound that is unique to Blakk. He continues to hone and refine his skills as a Hip-Hop artist with each new project, but is also concentrating on the record label which he helped form in late 2004. "Plain Blakk Wrapper", Blakk's latest claim to fame was only recently made available to the general public. This release has the signature sound that has made this artist as popular as he is unique. The next release, "How I Came Up" is scheduled for release in the later part of 2008.

All Around the World
Lyrics by T.Brewer Copyright RoyalT Records/BUMPitLOUD Productions 2006
produced by I.N.F.O of BlownUp Records

Chorus

One of these days I'm really going to make it man
One of these days I'll go all around the world
I'll live the styles of the rich and famous (maybe)
One of these days I'll go all around the world. X2

Verse1

Competition is zero, my styles critically acclaimed cause I flip it everyday
Like wind do to paper, just blowing you away (oooohh)
Leave you confused thinkin' what he gon' do.
You better be rested and done with your confession.
Here comes the rush
I enter your temples spitting heat but yet I'm cool to the touch.
And did I mention all the heat I been spitting getting me some worldwide recognition (naaah)
My jurisdiction, ain't no boundaries.
Circle the globe twice and end up right back where you found me.
Here to the bay, city to state
I'm on tour then I'm making international dates.
One of these days,
I'll bubble the pockets while you watching, the whole world is a stage
I'm certified to wage and the war that I'm bringing to you got your mind afraid, watch!

Chorus

One of these days I'm really going to make it man
One of these days I'll go all around the world
I'll live the styles of the rich and famous (maybe)
One of these days I'll go all around the world. X2

Verse2

Killing them softly, while flossing I've been obtaining knowledge
Bang the gavel it's a wrap man, get in the coffin.
I make the eulogy smoke
And I got the whole front row battling the heat stroke so!
I got to chill the flow for you
So I hit it with the CO2 (recognize)
And now I'm chillin' like a Icee
Cooler than the cuts and still I'm harder than the concrete
Your boy here got more goods than a swapmeet
Never catch me slipping cause see I'm flipping every copy.
Triple the rhymes then triple the cost
Then I divide and multiply by taking over the charts.
And after that I think I'll call it a day
I'm hitting every stop along the way....one of these days (One of these days)

Chorus

One of these days I'm really going to make it man
One of these days I'll go all around the world
I'll live the styles of the rich and famous (maybe)
One of these days I'll go all around the world. X2

All around the world..........All around the world

Third Degree(Spitfire2)-Remix
Lyrics by T.Brewer Copyright RoyalTRecords/BUMPitLOUDProductions 2006
produced by I.N.F.O of BlownUp Records

Verse1
(Third Degree....spitfire2....the remix)

Guess who's back, yeah it's Blakk, yeah I know it's been awhile
You know the cliche` I'm in the game,the crowd is going wild.
Spent some time still on the grind I'm stacking paper for the label
Spitting lines thats meant for majors mostly shocking like a tazer.
It don't phase me, that you traded up like a Raider
I'm a made man, hated by the ones that try to fade it
Ain't the greatest, still they recognize I'm maintaining
They wait in line to get some training then they waste it acting famous
I'm spitting flames. these the flames I use for lighting ranges.
I'm only play so with these I do cakes. I turn it up to make it hot so that you know that I'm great
You should have never got me started man, cause now it's too late.
If you mis-pronounce the name then you missing the grade
That means you fail on every level so you ain't getting paid.
Try to find a better place to hide (why's that)
Cause this might hurt a little (how's that)
I'm spitting fire that will send you to the hospital.

Chorus

Third degree from all the fire that I'm spitting on you
And realize I ain't hiding cause I'm here to warn you
Red hot smoking cinders,ash and lava
Rhymes thats hot enough to kill you raining on you like a shower now.

Verse

Condition critical, code blue then flatline
That's what it comes to when you facing my rhymes.
Want to battle then you better stop then press the rewind
And you know that when you backing, gotta watch your behind.
I'm running over you from all sides, like a freeway
Extra-credit for the game, man you the free play
Komikazi bout to blow you out the water
Drought conditions make it dryer, RoyalT gone make it hotter (I'mma)
Change the climate til you're pointing out mirages
Need relief then I suggest you better go to where it's Winter time
Chill the mission, I'm a walking contradiction
Yeah I know I said it different, this is just the way it is son.
Write the orders then I send out the destroyers
Draw the battle plans, then I cross the line and kill your warriors
I'mma show you that I'm Royal your attempt is getting foiled..WHY?
Because I said....you know, I'm spitting fire!

Chorus

Third degree from all the fire that I'm spitting on you
And realize I ain't hiding cause I'm here to warn you
Red hot smoking cinders,ash and lava
Rhymes thats hot enough to kill you raining on you like a shower now. X2

Set List

In a typical show, usually showcases with 5-6 other artists, my set on average is 10-15 minutes long. I'll usually have a DJ do a medley-type mix beforehand so that I can squeeze more music into less time. It also seems to help generate more crowd interest. I don't do covers, mostly because there are already so many other Hip-Hop artists trying to sound like other artists. I really just want to be me. My set might consist of "Show Me Mami" and "All Around the World" followed by "Spitfire" and "I'm So Into You".
