One of my biggest interests in Music and in particular those genres born out of hardship and story-telling – like blues, conscious rap and hip-hop.
A good old friend of mine is big-shot MC and hip hop artist MC I.T. (Imaging This). If you’re into electronic sounds blended with Hip Hop and bad noise – CHECK IT OUT!
