Biography

"I'm not suffering from insanity....I'm loving every minute of it"-Whitefolkz

This quote is the best way to describe the sound of Whitefolkz, an original artist with an explosive sound coming from Washington, D.C., the nations capital. No one is 100% sure where Whitefolkz was born or where he is from, but his mother claims to hold a copy of a birth certificate that says he was born in Alexandria, VA. When asked where he is from Whitefolkz responds by saying, Topp Dogg Hill...the group of artists he works with and considers family.
Whitefolkz has been producing and rapping since the age of 15 and has been playing guitar and piano even longer. In interviews, he cites his major influences as Andre 3000, Prince, Marilyn Manson, Jimi Hendrix, UGK, and Curtis Mayfield.

His key demographic is women between the ages of 17 and 35. His good looks and constant focus in his lyrics about his hair, partying, dancing, satisfying women sexually and having a good time makes him appeal to all listeners. Everyone wants to have a good time and laugh, and Whitefolkz creates that atmosphere and ambience.

He produces the majority of his singles and album tracks and prefers it that way.

"A relationship with music is like a marriage. If you get tired of the same old marital sex with your wife, you try new things to spice up your love life. If your wife isnt willing to try those new things, some other woman will. Same goes for music...rap began to bore me so I brought my guitar back into the production. Now im satisfied...for now"-Whitefolkz
