I started rhyming back in 98, originally in a group, then eventually moved on to solo work. I alos produce beats along with my partner Bob in our team called Shortened Science, and I am also the frontman for a Rap Rock band named E.N.V.Y. I feel like my music is the everyman's hip hop, where as anyone from any walk of life can relate to some of the things I discuss, but also vibe out with my songs as well. I won't try to go into a huge paragraph of who I sound like or who my influences are, I'll just tell you to listen to my songs and form that opinion for yourself.
I do play live, thus far mainly with my band E.N.V.Y. and concentrating on the local area (the DMV-WV to be exact- D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.) I love playing live, I really do think it's where I shine the most because of the energy I have on a stage in front of fans or even people who may I have never heard me. I think my biggest moment thus far was playing my first legitimate show (a.k.a. a bar show hehe) with the first band I performed with, we packed the place and alot of people that knew me from school were there. They never knew I rapped, so seeing the look on their faces when I started performing was priceless.
