Good Day Mr. or Mrs. A&R Rep.

How are you doing to day, fine I hope? This isn’t your ordinary bio you are about to read. Yes it has the usual, influences, some of the things I’ve accomplished, and my plans on where I want to take my talents. Yes it has all of that and then some, but what’s going to make this bio stand out is this opening statement. You see, most demos you get people are unsure where they are musically and they’re hoping they can catch a break so they send you what they think are there best 3 records. That’s where I differ why because I know my records are hot, fresh, and new, from my style of rap, presentation, clarity, and lyrical content. Saying that I would like for you to choose any cut on the list and you will feel my music and style as well as the persona that I’m going to bring to the Music Industry. I realize your scouting for new developed artist. So look no further for I’m right in front of you. Here’s an opportunity for your label to have the next ground breaking artist to hit the scene. I was born in Gary, IN and raised in Chicago until my father passed away, at which time we moved to Fremont, OH. I joined the Marine Corps, which brought my family and me to Jacksonville, NC. I was in the Corps for five years and during that time my musical career was put on hold. Know that I'm out of the Marine Corps I have been pursuing my music career fully. I have been rapping for about fifteen years and have always been told that I had a different style as well as a different persona on the rap game. My influences and inspirations are Notorious B.I.G., 2 Pac, Ice Cube, Eight Ball, Mary J. Blige, R Kelly, Scarface, and Busta Rhymes. The reason why, is because these artist all have taken the music industry to newer heights and that's what I'm going to do as well with my rapping style and lyrics. I came out with a local CD. It sold over 5000 copies in NC alone. I also have made sales it in these other states (DC, IL, IN, VA, SC, TN, MS, GA, OH, MI, NY, NJ, and CA) to give a ruff estimate of about 25,000 units was sold. It's being played on the following radio stations in NC 92.3, and 101.1 Da beat in MS I'm on 106.3 and 99.7, also in OH on 94.3 and numerous college radio stations. I was also picked up by two talent agencies that are known worldwide Talent 2K, and Rap Vibe. I also have performed on channel 12 for the citrus fibrosis foundation fundraiser. I recently performed at the International New York Music Festival and was one of the many MC's chosen to be at the Summit of Chicago. I write all my songs and produce some of the tracks too, and at times I write for other people. Some of the things I plan to accomplish in this music business are longevity something you don't see a lot these days as far as rap artist go. I love music and the way I make people feel when they hear my music, from them "getting rowdy" in the club to sharing my feeling with them in emotional songs like "I'm everything you want in a man". With that being said, my short-term goal is to be the next ground breaking artist and achieve the new artist of the year, and my long-term goal is to make good music for my fans for years and years to come.
