• BIO:
I have a sincere voice that commands the respect and attention of its listeners. I started rappin at the age of about 7 or 8, but didn’t take it serious until about the age of 16. It was then where I developed my unique talent with a blend of Cali versus D.C slang and style. I grew up in South Central California, but stayed in D.C for about two years. When I returned to Cali, I brought back a different state of mind and more stories to tell in my music. I believe that music is all about touching those that listen to your music. My name was created in High School and has stuck with me because I truly believe that I have set standards for this art of hip hop. I’ve have worked many hours of the day to do my music because it is my passion and the love that I will always have. If I’m stripped of all my material luxury’s’ in life, at least I’ll always have my flow. It is often said by many that I think outside the box and don’t hesitate to try new ideas which makes me the unique artist that I am. I pray that one day I can drop my crummy 9 to 5 job and pursue my music. Not as a hobby or just for money, but as a career and business. The game is just that a business. I’m still hard at work grinding day in and day out so that I can reap the fruits of my labor.

• PERFORMANCE:
My experience with performing comes from doing shows at; BB Kings at City Walk, The Mint in Hollywood, The Mountain Bar, The Rainbow Cafe Bar and Grill, The Rock, The Key Club in Hollywood, The Roxy in Hollywood, "Unleash The Talent" Showcase in Pasadena, and the list goes on.

• INDUSTRY QUOTES:
"RUBRIC infuses each rhyme with a refreshing versatility, mesmeric delivery, and intricate improvisation. RUBRIC does not need the hottest beat or hook to flow well, the music needs him".
Tiffany Reneigh
Songwriter

"RUBRIC skillfully balances his delivery of meaningful, uplifting lyrics, as well as an edge that commands street-cred! His is a talent that deserves an extensive platform".
Tony Estese
Associate Producer
TRUTH HALL
Award Winning Feature Film
Including BEST SOUNDTRACK at QBC International Film Festival

"RUBRIC is the future of hip hop! His music is original, swagged out, and inspirational all at the same time. He makes me wish I could rap! Definitely my favorite rapper by far".
Sheven Morris
Producer

"One of the most talented, hard working, humble artist I have ever worked with. RUBRIC has a sound that hypnotizes the ear and captivates the heart. He is defiantly more than a beat and a hook with a style I haven't heard in years. It's time to bring TRUE Hip Hop back to the fore front and RUBRIC is just the artist to take us there".
