Jack of all trades and master of one: Lyricism.
11 years of lyricism, adapting to the many styles of different regions, eras, and sub-genres of Hip Hop, I've released records, projects, and toured. So now I want to write for others. I want to make custom rap verses for all kinds of music whether it's a Drake like verse for an R & B ballad or a Pitbull like verse for your dance record. Even if you never heard an emcee on your genre of music, we can make it work. I can to adapt my tone and writing to your genre!
