A born and raised Southern Illinois rapper,writter,and producer with a Midwest flow. Contact Address : Kobe_flann@hotmail.com Kobeflann@hotmail.com .. I was born on planet Earth, located in the outer regions of the Milky Way Galaxy, but my birth certificate is the only proof of that. I have a job that doesn’t meet the ideal socio economic standard therefore, I’m a slave to the economy, but that seems to be the American way. Had I actually got out of bed and went to my RLC art courses I could be making more but “my attitude is fuck it cuz mother fuckers love it” Pac! My life is music. I’m fascinated with irony, for example, I plan to make a club hit with a heavy metal riff and then top the rock charts with a Timbaland style beat. My first recording went down while I was in the 8th grade. It was to Snoop Dogg's "Still a G Thang" instrumental. It knocked the muddy boots off of many shit kickers, believe me! I’m convinced that I was the first around this neck of the woods to innovatively pursue a rap career. High School came along, and a class mate now known as DJ Crump moved to town (Dahlgren, IL) and shit hit the fan. We began collaborating with each other and the rest is history! So where do I stand now? Well, after many experiments with drugs, trips to jail, many failures, I’m talking many, after dark days; even Jesus gave up on me. After many raps, freestyles, near death experiences, and days with out a penny; I’m still here. I’m still alive, and I’ve realized that your attitude can turn it all around. I changed my religion, I’ve changed my philosophies, I’ve changed my past, present and future. Life couldn’t be better. I’m producing two albums simultaneously. I’ve been influenced by numerous genres including: rock, rap, reggae, alternative, hippy shit etc.. I have an appreciation for an eclectic variation of music. I currently and forever will express it within my personal creation of art. Expect to hear my vocals on your stereo some day, and when that happens, remind your passenger of what you’ve learned from this enlightening biography. As for musical influences: ..
