That I'm Dreaming Music Video
At just 19 years of age, the South African West Coast is hit with a dynamic conscious sound. Tha Real U, a former "bedroom" DJ (and less frequently a young poet), took a change in music interest and persued his earlier dream of rapping. Freestyling random stuff since age 10, Real U challenged himself to write lyrics and break into the undeground as a Hip-Hop artist after he discovered the talents of rappers Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Trip Lee, Mouthpi3ce & Bizzle. His inspiration is the Lord. His aim in music is spitting truth with a style best described as 'Consciousness & Controversy'. Since his younger age, Real U's motto was "imagine it today, life it tomorrow" - and he clearly states that his not in it for the fame, but one way or another try to bring glory to the Lord's name. His style is often direct or descriptional, with either a fast variable flow, a constent one with an trick in wordplay or a radical style considered to be "no flow" where he speaks a message straight up in poetic form.
