Born in Brooklyn NY during the 70's. Lived in Brooklyn and Queens in the 80's. Moved to VA late '89 (back and forth from '92-'97) where not only did I experience racism, but the idiocies of humans towards New Yorkers. So when did I love Hip Hop? Early 80's when I would put my tape in my box and record DJ Red Alert on 98.7 Kiss on saturday night!!! As I got older and was allowed to stay up later, I would just go back and forth from Kiss to WBLS for hours. The greatest influence believe it or not was my radio!
I started writing just trying to see how id do some years later....13 years old i grabbed my pen for other than homework. I was not good at all. I started writing seriously in 1993 as an outlet for my miscues on life so far. Fast forward 20 years and here I am, packaged at the right time, sealed for freshness! I needed Hip Hop to provide a soundtrack to my life for years.....and now I can povide the soundscape for its rightful return to ART!
