The best kept secret in music


"Lyrics Almost Home"

True lyricism right here. It's got an universal and revolutionary message, and at the same time I feel like I'm being re-introduced to the West coast, a side of the West rarely seen. - Myspace.com

Feeling a bit camera shy


His March 2007 release of the trifecta package The Trilogy, which included a documentary on his life, his second book of poetry and a 15 track album, garnered him great media attention, a sponsorship deal with RockStar Energy Drink and a California Tour of 30 dates.

His roots are in the tough and tumble San Francisco neighborhood known as Bayview Hunter's Point. At any early age teachers, family members and friends took notice of his incredible writing skills. In 2003, Rap released his solo album, "Dream Returned" selling over 1,000 copies through independent production and distribution. In 2004 along with the Hip-Hop and Neo-soul group, The Backcourt, Rap released a second album, "Soul Gossip" which to date has sold 3,000 copies. Along side his group, Rap has headlined shows in premiere venues such as Blakes on Telegraph in Berkeley Ca, Canes Bar and Grill in San Diego California and Studio Z in San Francisco, Ca.

Rap4Rights is working to create a new sound and genre of hip hop-soul that will cross racial and generational gaps. His influences include artists such as Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Mos Def, Common, Lauryn Hill and Ras Kass.
