If you look up the word authentic in the dictionary, there is no denying the fact, Authentic exemplifies these characteristics in every aspect of his life and music. Authentic is a hip-hop artist and producer, born and raised in Colorado. Authentic has been writing music since he was a kid, but didn’t record his first song until 2004. Every song ever recorded by Authentic, was recorded, mixed and mastered by himself, in his basement. Authentic has worked vigorously to perfect his style of hip-hop music and make his sound one of a kind. Authentic is also a producer, and spent the first 5 years exclusively using his own beats. In 2010, Authentic starting using other producers beats, because he noticed it brought out a different side of him, not having a pre determined idea of what a song should sound like, while producing the beat. Authentic finds motivation from everyday life experiences. Authentic was fortunate to overcome some tragic events in his life, which allowed him to view things from a different perspective he wouldn’t have otherwise known. Fueled by the negative and repetitive music on radio and television, Authentic takes aim at these things on many of his songs. Authentic grew up in the era, when hip-hop was at its peek, so you hear many different influences in his music. Some of his songs are curse free, while others might offend the most foul mouth individuals. What you get with Authentic, is Authentic music. No filters, no holding back., no agenda, besides making music that makes him happy. Authentic makes music so widely ranged and diverse, a lot of the times its hard to understand how one man can be so complex and have so many different perspectives on multiple topics. While Authentic has performed 150+ shows, he is now focused on recording and releasing as mush free music as his mind will allow. Authentic looks forward to gaining new fans, and hopes his music can make an impact on someone, like music did when he needed it to.
