I was born March 7th 1982 as Justin Larry McKissick, with a life path number 3. I have always been more of a "Master" Song writer because I write the most popular genres of music. I am seasoned to writing Hip Hop/Rap, Pop, Rock, R and B, Ballots, being compared to Prince, Andre 3000, Frank Ocean was a boost to the ego.
I'm always writing music in the perspective person's current life condition. Some people are ballin, happy, in love, out of relationship, sad, wanna party etc. My music is cinematic, full of creative lyrics and spoken with conviction. Oh yeah, I make killer melodies, bridges and hooks for any genre as well. Just check out my music.
