Styles definitely has a promising future in the music industry. Coming off his latest project Star In The Makiing, the 22 year old emcee has been making some noise and generating a buzz in the tri-state area with his singles such as, “Blackhole” and “MOE” both produced by local Producer, Colin McCabe.
