I’ve always loved and been interested by music for as long as I can remember. Music gets me through everything. It motivates, it calms me down when I need peace and hypes me up when I need energy, it helps me focus, lets me understand things from different perspectives, it educates, and it allows me to show my own creativity and tell my stories. My big brother was also an inspiration to me because he has been making music since he was a teenager. At first, I would just play around and write or freestyle to a song every once in a while. Once I got to college was when I started taking it serious. One day I was freestyling with a couple of my guys and I said a couple hot bars so they told me to actually write a song. Ever since then, I knew I wanted to make a career out of this.
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: SLOC
My best experience so far would be my first performance. C. Cash (my brother) had a 10 minute set and brought me on stage so I could do my single “Mission.” It wasn’t a crazy big crowd but the audience was diverse and they were rocking with me for that 3 minutes. It was nice to not get booed or choke my first time performing, but what stuck out to me more was the fact that males and females from different age groups, races, and backgrounds all liked my song and the way I performed it. Knowing that they were satisfied with my music was a good feeling since the majority of them didn’t know me from a can of paint.
No projects out yet, just a couple singles on soundcloud. I’m gonna be dropping more often soon, I’ve been working trust me.
My first performance was at Voltage Lounge and my second one was at a showcase at Suite 215.
What makes me stand out is an artist is my unorthodox and versatile style. My flow constantly changes so I can keep the listener engaged but still have them trying to predict my next move or rhyme scheme. Lyrical rap has always fascinated me so that gets incorporated into the mix, too. Sometimes I’ll say something catchy and others, you might have to rewind 3 or 4 times. What I say, when I say it, and how I say it all matters. My topics have range too, I feel like I can make a song about almost anything as long as I actually have knowledge on it. I don’t always rap fast, I don’t always rap slow, I don’t even always rap…
No big moves in place at the moment, but I definitely got some heat coming for y’all! Don’t forget the name, be on the lookout for it.
