Bio

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.
