Whether it was fronting bands at such hollowed venues as the Knitting Factory and CBGB's, or citing spoken word at the Nuyorican Cafe and the Bowery Poetry Club,As always love the stage. A once regular at drum and bass party's, it was at these party's where he really began to utilize both rapping and singing together. Using these experiences, Outasight is bringing his brand of music to the forefront.

Radio New York is a refreshing blend of soul inspired hip hop.

The beats are provided by up and coming producers Dante Lewis (Virginia Beach, VA) and D/Will (Kansas City, MO) and are sure to please.
