Deadbeat, unsigned UK rapper from Chester, England.
I have yet to perform live (other than a few freestyles in front of my mates!) but yeah it would be cool.
2Pac/Makaveli is definately my main influence, I been listenin to his shit for years and it was his music that made me want to rap. Other than him though Nas, Kurupt, Eazy-E, Yukmouth, 50 cent, Crooked I and some UK cats like Moorish Delta 7.
Cool Edit Pro, some headphones and a cheap ass mic!
