I HAVE A SOUND THAT IS DIFFERENT FROM EVERY RAPER OUT. I CREATE MUSIC THAT HAS A CROSS OVER APPEALING TO ALL CULTURES NOT JUST BLACKS. I WANT TO CHANGE THE STEROTYPES REGARDING RAP MUSIC. BECAUSE RAP ISN'T JUST ABOUT GIRLS CARS AND CLOTHS.

Biography


"I DIDN'T CHOOSE MUSIC IT CHOSE ME. MUSIC IS MY PASSION AND I NEED IT, LIKE I NEED TO BREATH"

I WAS BORN IN DETROIT MI FEB 21 1980. I BEGAN TAKING RAP SERIOUSLY ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. BUT I HAVE BEEN WRITING MY WHOLE LIFE, NOT JUST MUSIC BUT SHORT STORIES. MY FAVORITE SUBJECT BESIDES GYM CLASS WAS ENGLISH. I JUST LOVE TO WRITE, I NEVER IMAGINED I'D BECOME A ARTIST OF MUSIC. BUT THROUGH THE WALKS OF LIFE, WHICH HAS NAVIGATED ME TO AMERICA'S FINEST CITY, SAN DIEGO CA, IT HAS BECOME MY DESTINY.
IN 1999 I CAME TO SAN DIEGO DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES DEALING WITH THE JUDICAL SYSTEM. SO RATHER THEN FACE INCARATION I JOINED THE NAVY. GOING TO JAIL WOULD HAVE PUT ME BACK 2 YEARS AND TIME WAITS FOR NO MAN.
THE NAVY WAS DIFFERENT.
IT TAUGHT ME ALOT ABOUT THE REAL WORLD, LIKE THE ONLY REASON I HAD TO SALUTE OFFICERS WAS BECAUSE THEY HAD DEGREE I VOWED, WHEN I GET OUT HONORABLE I WOULD GET A DEGREE. SO I GOT OUT AND RECIEVED AN AA DEGREE IN HEALTH SCIENCE. I WOULD HAVE NEVER GOT MY DEGREE IF IT WASN'T FOR THE NAVY I WOULD HAVE NEVER GOT MY DEGREE, I DIDN'T GET THAT PIECE OF PAPER FOR A CAREER I GOT IT BECAUSE PROPLE SAID I COULDN'T DO IT.
AND THAT DEFINES MY DRIVE TO BE SUCCSESSFUL IN EVERYTHING WHICH MAKES MY MUSIC SO SPECIAL. BEING FROM DETROIT I LOOK AT THE SUNSET AND THE CALIFORNIA COUNTRY SIDE AND I GET STUCK LOOKING. SEE A PERSON BORN IN CALIFORNIA HAS BEEN SEEING THAT THERE WHOLE LIFE I HAVEN'T SO THE WAY I EXPERIENCE THINGS ARE BETTER EXPLAINED IN MY MUSIC. WHEN SOME ONE HEARS MY SONG ABOUT CALIFORNIA THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO FEEL THE SUNSHINE COME OUT THERE SPEAKERS. BEING FROM ANOTHER PLACE AND REPING SAN DIEGO IS RARE BUT THERES ONLY ONE THING TO SAY ABOUT THAT, NOW A DAYS WE ARE LIVING IN A NEW DAY IN AGE WITH BISINESS WIT GAS CEO RECIEVING ONER 10 MILLION "BONUS" CHECKS :SPORTS WITH SUPER "YOUNG" ATHLETES AND" POLITICAS STARTING WAR OVER "OIL"
WELL YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT IT WAS A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL RAP MUSIC TOOK ANOTHER STEP FOWARD" NATURE ALWAYS IS FIGURING OUT HOW TO CREATE NEW AND ADAPTATIVE WAYS TO MAKE HUMANS "AS A SPIECIES" GROW AND CHANGE FROM THE WAYS OF OLD.
WEITHER THAT BE GANGBANGING IN YOUR FAMILY,
OR RACESIEM IN YOUR FAMILY
ALL THING MUST CHANGE JUST AS TIME MUST CHANGE , IT DON'T MATTER WHERE YOU FROM , WHERE YOU AT."
DETROIT'S IN MY CHEST
BUT SD IN MY BREATH
AND FROM THAT IT MAKES MY MUSIC ONE OF A KIND MIXING WEST, EAST AND SOUTHERN INFLUENCES. MY STYLE I RAP AND SING BLENDING DIFFERNT CULTURES OF MUSIC PROVIDING EDUCATION, STREETS, JOY AND PAIN INTO ONE EMOTION.
IN MY MUSIC I FOCUS ON REACHING EVERY GENRE TO BE AN INFLUENCE MY GENERATION. I HAVE WRITTEN A SONG ABOUT CANCER IT IS CALLED "ETERNAL". IT IS PLAYING ON "FLAVOR OF LOVE 2 " THE REASON THAT SONG WAS PUT ON THAT SHOW WAS TO SAVE MILLIONS OF LIVES WITH EARLY DETECTION THROUGH ONE WEMONS SUFFERING.
I ALSO HAVE SONGS ABOUT ABORATION AND FAMILY LIFE. BEING ABLE TO WRITE MUSIC FOR MY MOTHERS GENERATION AND THE GENERATION YET TO COME IS WHAT SEPERATES ME FROM MY PEERS.
PEOPLE SAY THAT MY UNIQUE STYLE ALONG WITH MY STAND OUT STAGE PERFORMANCE MAKES ME ONE OF THE HOTTEST UNSIGNED TALENTS.
IT IS HARD AT FRIST TO GET ON BUT WHEN IT HAPPENS I WILL BE (GOD WILLING) A PLATFORM OF GREATNESS THAT CHANGED THE WAY MUSIC IS HEARD AND WRITTEN.
MEANWHILE I WILL CONTINUE TO PERFECT MY MUSIC, ALWAYS KNOWING THAT THE ABSOLUTE POWER THAT ARTIST POSSES IS TO CREATE TRENDS THROUGH MUSIC, REMEMBERING THAT NO MATTER WHAT MAY HAPPENS HISTORY WILL ASCERTAIN YOUR GREATNESS BY THE PEOPLE YOU TOUCH AND THE MESSAGE YOU LEAVE BEHIND"......

ETERNAL

Written By: MERIERE IZOBO

HOOK:
THERES A REASON SHE PAST
WE SHOULD BE GLAD
SHE ANT HAVING NO MORE SUFFERING
THINK OF ALL THE LIVES SHE'LL SAVE BECAUSE OF WHAT SHE DID FOR ME
ETERNALLY YOU'LL LIVE NOW REST IN PEACE

VERSE 1

I REMEMBER WHEN WE MET YOU WERE LAYING IN BED
THE DOCTOR SAID IT'S FRIGHTING HE SPOTTED TUMORS IN YOUR HEAD
I COULD FIGHTING DISPITE THE RUMORS WERE SAID
YOUR FAMILY SAYING SOON YOU WOULD BE DEAD
WENT TO ANOTHER ROOM TO SHED MY TEARS JUST TO HIDE MY WEAKNESS
DON'T LOOK INSIDE YOUR EYES CAUSE I'LL CRY THE LEASTEST
ASK GOD WHY MUST SHE DIE PURE LIKE A BUTTER FLY AND HER HEARTS THE SWEETEST
I DON'T BELIEVE THIS
YOU GOT TO BABY GIRLS AND YOUR HUSBAND AN ACHOLIC
HE GIVING SHOTS OF HENNESSY TO YOUR DAUGHTERS TILL IT MAKES UM EARL
I'M THINKING HOW THEY GONE MAKE IT IN THIS CRAZY WORLD
BUT THE BEST PART IS I'M DATING ONE OF YOUR KIDS
AND I'M GONE TAKE HER PLACES SHE NEVER BEEN
MY MOMA KICKED ME OUT THE HOUSE SO NOW I'M LIVING IN YOUR CRIB
BUT I PROMISE I'LL MAKE IT WHEN I'M BIG

HOOK:

VERSE2

RIGHT WHEN I MOVED YOUR DAUGHTER RAISED HER GRADES
MY MOMA TAUGHT ME EDUCATION IS WHAT FREED THE SLAVES
TOLD ME TO DO IT WIT NO HESITATION YOU'LL BE SAVED
GOOD THING ONE OF YOUR DAUGHTERS STARTED TO MIMIC MY WAYS
NOW YOUR HUSBANDS LEAVING AND I WISH HE WOULD STAY
HE GONE FRO DAYS AND DAYS ON A DRUNKING ESCAPADE
JANET TOLD ME THAT YOUR DIAPER NEEDS TO BE CHANGED
I DIDN'T ANT TO BUT I HELPED AND IT WASN'T STRANGE
ME AND YOUR DAUGHTER CLEANED YOU UP YOU SAID IT WAS SO EMBARESSING
THOUGHT I CAN RELATE BUT THEN THERES NO COMPARISSION
YOUR HUSBAND WASN'T THERE SO THAT MADE YOUR SAD
THOUGH IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR US YOU MADE US GLAD
BY TELING US SOMTHING FUNNY CAUSE YOU MADE US LAUGH
FROM BAD TO HAPPY DAYS MY PAST THIS BRENDAS FOR YOUR PRAISE A VOICE FROM THE GRAVE THAT LAST OVER A MILLION LIVES SAVED CAUSE OF THE WAY SHE PAST

HOOK

VERSE 3

I HAD TO THINK HARD WHY GOD TAKE A WEMON THATS NEEDED
WITHOUT HER THE FAMILY WOULD FEEL DEFEATED
BUT WITH THE RIGHT EDUCATION SHE COULD HAVE BEAT IT
I GUESS SHE NEEDED TO PAST FOR US TO SEE IT
JUST LIKE THE AMBER ALERT OR THE MARANDA RIGHTS
PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE IN ORDER FOR US TO STAND AND FIGHT
MAKE A PLAN, GRAB SOMBODIES HAND AND UNITE
A MARYTER NEVER EVER HAS THE GRANDEST LIFE
THATS WHY NO MATTER WHAT YOU GOT TO SAY GOD IS GOOD ALLOWS BAD THING TO HAPPEN TO DISGUISE THE GOOD
OPEN MY EYES PROMISE I'LL REVIVE THE HOODS
TO GENERATION EDUCATION YOU'LL SURVIVE AND SHOULD TEACH IT TO THE NEXT
CANCER MAY SKIP A GENERATION THEN GET PLABTED IN THE CHEST THAT MEANS JANET ISN'T NEXT BUT HER BABIES IS
DON'T WORRY BOUT IT WE GONE MAKE IT KID
