I'm in my early 20's. I myself am an eccentric. I am a forward thinker in music. I reject 90% of what's on the radio, and respect true hard-working musicians. I listen to anything and everything and can see the beauty in multiple musical styles, as long as it's not the dumb rap you hear nowadays.
I grew up on a long musical tradition, being a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. I write spoken word poetry, song lyrics, and raps. I rap and do a little singing here and there. I also mess around with digital musical production via my computer. I'm looking to start a hip-hop band with an experimental edge. Hit me up for more info!
I may not have a million instruments, but I would really like to be able to record a few tracks with a few other talented musicians. I really want to get my lyrics out there.
