Biography

MY GOD, IF I LIST ALL OUR INFLUENCES THIS SHORT BIOGRAPHY WILL SEEM LIKE A NOVEL. OUR INFLUENCES STEM FROM HIP HOP. OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS HIP HOP, OUR FRIENDS IS HIP HOP, OUR LIFE IS HIP HOP, OUR WORLD IS HIP HOP. JUST BECAUSE WE ARE HIP HOP DOESNT MEAN OTHER GENRES DID NOT AFFECT US AS EQUALLY. LINKIN PARK INCORPORATED HIP HOP INTO ROCK AND ROLL ,BEAUTIFULLY, AND OPENED UP A WHOLE NEW WORLD FOR US WE CALL THIS BAND "THE GATEWAY BAND". LINKIN PARK HELPED ME UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF GOOD MUSIC THAT IS NOT ESSENTIALLY HIP HOP. THROUGH THEM I GOT MORE COMFORTABLE WITH METAL,PUNK ROCK, COUNTRY, EXPERIMENTAL, CLASSIC ROCK, TECHNO AND MANY MANY MORE DIFFERNT TYPES OF MUSIC. AND THROUGH ALL THIS MUSIC I LEARNED HOW TO CONNECT MY FEELINGS TO THE INSTRUMENTAL, FLOW(COMPOSE) IT WITH MY OWN NATURAL RHYTHM AND INCLUDE WORD PLAY TO KEEP THE LISTENERS MINDS LIT.

WHAT SETS ME ASIDE FROM THE OTHERS IS THAT ALL MY LIFE WHEN I USED TO PLAY AROUND RAPPING TO MY FRIENDS I WAS ALWAYS TOLD I WAS WACK OR STRAIGHT GARBAGE. HEARING ALL THAT NEGATIVITY NEVER MADE ME STOP DOING WHAT I LIKED DOING AND I USED TO DO IT ALL THE TIME SO YOU CANT IMAGINE HOW MUCH TIMES I HEARD I WAS WACK. EVERYBODY FROM MY MOTHER (NO LIE SHE SAID I WASN'T GOOD) TO MY PEERS TOLD ME AT ONE POINT I WAS NOT GOOD. NOW MY FELLOW BAND MEMBERS ARE AT CONSTANT GOOD BLOODED COMPETITION WITH OUR LYRICS AND WORDPLAY AND COMPOSER. BUT IF IT WASN'T FOR THEM I WOULD NT HAVE PROGRESSED THE WAY I DID, IF IT WASN'T FOR ALL THEM PEOPLE I WOULD HAVE STILL BEEN AT SQUARE ONE.

IT WASN'T TILL WINTER OF 2008 I HAD TO STOP LYING TO MYSELF. I HAD TO STOP TELLING MYSELF FINISH SCHOOL DO WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE SAYS TO DO AND GO TO SCHOOL, BUT I'M DONE LYING TO MYSELF. I'M GONNA ACTUALLY DO WHAT I LOVE DOING AND STOP SWITCHING MAJORS EVERY WEEK.
AND I GUARANTEE I WONT DISAPPOINT MYSELF.
