My contact is Once in a while a leader emerges from a generation of followers. SIX, born Nicholas Green, may very well be that leader. Six was born in Los Angeles California and soon relocated to Oakland and the bay area where his mother raised him. His humble beginnings bear a striking resemblance to another leader in the world of music: Keisha Cole. Her childhood home is not only on the same block but directly across the street. Influenced by the greats in Hip hop like Jay-Z , DMX and 2pac, Six’s music is based on honesty and the idea that being yourself is not just cool but in a world of followers it’s exceptional. At 20 years old Six has been through his fair share of ups and downs as he went from having his own place in Los Angeles to sleeping on his managers couch while they negotiated recording deals. Six began writing rhymes in the third grade and released his first mixtape "Heavier Than Air" in February of 2010. However due to a lack of marketing it was overlooked by many in the industry. Fortunately, "Heavier Than Air" did give him the content needed to secure a management and production agreement with YOLO Music/3783 Media Group. Six released his sophomore release "Teenage Wasteland" hosted by Dj Ill Will and Dj Rockstar om a In a recent interview with Six described the EP’s title as “a state of mind that most of today’s youth live by so I just touch on topics that are directed to those individuals.”
