The greatest rap music to ever be recorded!! I'm joking, of course, but it is really good music. The goal is to be as entertaining as I am insightful.

Biography

Undaunted. Remaining unmoved and steadfast even when placed in adverse conditions. Impervious to poverty, negative influence, and seemingly hereditary dysfunction. Standing solid amongst instability and moving forward without fear. These characteristics describe so many in poor neighborhoods across America, but they are epitomized by City P. A new voice for those who excel despite the obstacles. Born to a 14 year-old mother and a 17 year-old father City P., born Rob Sherman, is no stranger to turmoil. The 24 year-old grew up without either parent due to drugs and incarceration. Raised by his maternal grandmother, a 22-year dialysis patient, City was taught the importance of perseverance by example. "She was the strongest, person I've ever seen. Straight up! I don't know how many women that can teach a boy to be a man but that's what she did." City recalls. Life was far from luxurious in the welfare-dependent home, but City still managed to be an over-achiever in sports and academics. Although gifted in the classroom and on the field, City discovered that his true gift was music. Because of his grandmother's pressure to do well in school, City kept his talents secret as he waited for the right time to reveal his gift. The right time would never came as his grandmother passed of a heart-attack when he was 12. She never heard him rap. After the death of his grandmother, City was thrown into a whirlwind, bouncing from home to home and city to city. What would have been an excuse for most people to fail became city's motivation to succeed. He focused on his academics and sports while leaving music on the back-burner. After completing high school and beginning college, music was almost lost, but another tragedy brought City back to the booth. On May 7, 2004, City's younger brother Ray "Diddy" Bass was gunned down near his home San Francisco. He was 17 years old and expected to graduate the next month. The previous week, City met with Ray at a local studio and discussed working on a project together. It was the last time he would see his brother alive. Determined to see his brother's dream fulfilled, City immersed himself into his craft. Researching and applying styles from all regions and even spending time in Atlanta to further his cause. Now, years after the death of his brother and armed with catalogue of over 150 songs, we find City rapidly climbing up the ladder of success. With a style that is completely unique, City blends his impactful lyrics, catchy hooks, erudite social commentary and first-hand life experiences together with his enticing delivery and unpredictable rhyme patterns to form a package that is unmatched by any in rap music today.
