Hey, welcome to BuzzMusic! How has your upbringing impacted your music?
My upbringing in a rough environment from the inner city of Denver has impacted my music by reporting the facts of real life social economic issues, as well as household issues of a broken home family. Have experienced many hardships that have allowed me to express the creative artistry with how I deliver my rhymes to music.
Tell us about “Block Barbarian” how does the title reflect the theme of the song?
BLOCK BARBARIAN is basically a narrative of three witty verses telling an underlying theme of how I took a different route out of my rough neighborhood from gangs, drugs & all types of inner city crime. It describes how a guy grew up on a certain block & became not only in control of a popular block, while giving back love to many friends/family who grew on a one of the roughest blocks in East Denver. Its as if my neighborhood taught me how to stand my ground in certain type of situations that impose a threat to my safety & means to survive & deal with them accordingly..so to some it all up saying BLOCK BARBARIAN represents the mentality of a savage, thug, roughneck hoodlum who's also educated & intertwining the best of both worlds in anything I do in life.
What inspired you to write “Block Barbarian”?
The track and music inspired the song BLOCK BARBARIAN along with having a "VOICE" as I simply let the music tell me what to do. Also just having something to say about my inner city & being one of DENVER'S UNDERDOG'S of the rap game along side some the best names in the game..
Who are your musical influences who have helped shape your career in the music industry?
My musical influences is a lifelong list of the greats ranging from Marvin Gaye, Prince, Michael Jackson, Roger Troutman, Run Dmc, LL.Cool.J, E40, 2Pac, Ice Cube, Scarface, Redman, Rakim, Nas & the list goes on.
What’s next for you through 2019?
