With a sound that is influenced by hip-hop legends such as Tupac, Biggie, Jay-Z and Nas, the 21 year old rap artist is relatively new to the game, but despite being a fresh face, he has already started to make a name for himself in areas throughout Chicago and Northwest Indiana and has gained a following for his music, which includes his latest record “L.O.V.E.”
“L.O.V.E.” exemplifies his lyrical styling – appealing to the ladies and to the streets at the same time.
