The sound he produces boasts an informed finesse that is witty and unmatched. His lyrical content embodies a rawness, laced with thought-provoking words that offer a vivid picture of where he comes from. Figures of the past and progressives of the present inspire his brand of music. The likes of Rakim, Mos Def, Nas, DMX, and Talib Kweli, among a wealth of others, account for allot of his inspiration, as well as different genres of music including Jazz, Reggae, and the Blues. These are the people and the sounds Win listens to while riding around his native Bronx. The Bronx is his home, born and raised in the belly of the beast he has taken the life lessons he has learned and applied them to the music that he makes. Win is truly a product of New York, and his music reflects the perpetual hustle of the city that never sleeps and keeps him humble. Born of Trinidadian and Jamaican decent, Win holds strongly to his West Indian roots, and is equally conscious of the impact his hometown of The Bronx has on him. It is there that the two 80s babies practically grew up together. Win and Hip Hop continue their relationship today, bringing a unique voice that represents the BX in his current mix-tape "Left for D.E.A.F: Deprived Early of All Failure”, which is out now.
