Still working on that hot first release.



 I'm a 39 year old Boston native,  I'm passionate. explicit, fearless, an artist and a quadriplegic when life won't let up enough to let me emcee. 

A voice, a podium and an audience to give my whole mouth. But all ink smeared roads still lead back to a lyric." Not by coincidence, Songwriting also comes easy when words own and effect me the way they do. It's evident in my soulful lyrics. Love is universal in any language, the same as heartbreak. Heartfelt rhythm and blues (R&B) has been the Gospel for as long as I can remember. At a younger age, street rhymes were a better fit. Rap battles were all day every day and to be taken seriously in the bricks. Hustling and hard living were consequently the contents of most of my verses and undoubtedly why they are still all meat and relative. A songwriter and quadriplegic now, gunned down as dramatically as my lyrics would predetermine... I have been paralyzed since and spend most days in my head, writing from my heart I have tried to make the best of the gifts I've been given.

Storytelling is a gift and a talent. I write beyond my body and consider myself an unchained chameleon in my songwriting. Conceit and contentment, arrogance and good reason. Why would a flame be ashamed of its heat? This is who I am. This is what the streets made me. This is what the creator gave me. My songbooks... SONGBOOK  2011 and SONGBOOK 2012 are essentially the author's notebooks. No matter the genre, if you've been through it my lyrics will voice it. I see through his eyes, and her soul. One way or another, this is the way to the mediator.
