My BEEN TO MANY PLACES BUT I'M BROOKLYN ZONE" The perfect phrase to describe this Flatbush bred artist. Raised in Vanderveer Projects, not "Flatbush Gardens" he states. His story is the same as alot of young males born in one of many drug infested pojects. Unfortunate, fatherless, mother struggling,etc... Though his story is the same, it is quite clear he is different. With a past that seems as he has been marked for death, his future shows the exact opposite. Due to unfortunate events, he admits his love for music has diminished but his passion for making it hasn't. He recalls his niche for music developed the first time hearing the theme song to video music box. His inspiration to write came from the hearing Bone Thugs and Harmony "thuggish ruggish bone". His musical aspirations are his inspirations are 2pac, Biggie, Raekwon, Capone and Noreaga, Nas, Ice cube, Rakim, Snoop dogg, Jay-z, Slick Rick, Young Jeezy, Beanie Siegal, Scarface, Bone Thugs and Harmony, DMX...to name a few on his long list of names. "Everyone in the game has a unique thing about them, that's where my inspiration comes from" Though it may seem he is strictly rap, he is very diversified with inspirations from blues legends Billie Holiday, Muddy Waters, Bobby Blue Bland, Buddy Guy, James Cotton... R@B crooners Sade, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Chaka Kahn, Barry White, Isaac Hayes, Alicia Keys, Toni Braxton, Anita Baker... not to mention soul greats like Earth Wind and Fire, Marvin Gaye, The BeeGee's, The Temptations, Five Heart Beats, Gladys Knight,... He has influences in all genres, in his words "good music is good music it doesn't matter the person,their reference, race, religion, affiliation, sexual orientation, nor gender". Motivated by the mere fact of people listening to what he has say, feeling his heart and soul being poured over snares and bass, speaking for those who can't speak for themselves, a self-proclaimed voice for the people. With plans of becoming internationally known and worldly recognized for his talent. Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages I introduce you to Hopalongdagr8t... Comments, Support, Promotion.
