They have created a unique sound that tests the limits of Lo-Fi Hip Hop and gives you a more nostalgic feel production, but innovative with sound bites and uncommon samples.
“Man, Hip Hop today is very much alive, I don’t think it could ever die out. It’s the passion that keeps it real and very blissful. That’s the essence and as long as myself and The Left Field Theory is still working here in Florida, we keeping it alive, word up,” he regarded.
He has been apart events like Enosite show @ Blue November’s Crib which was one of the best nights this year, Moon Landing at Spacebar, LABWRK & NIKO Is Live in Concert show presented by Jagermeister.
“I honestly don’t think I fit in the industry. I’ve heard from a few local rappers tell me that my sound just isn’t the sound, but you know some say otherwise, lol. I do plan on changing a lot about the industry cause man f**k this industry, I’m doing this s**t to get a lot off my chest and show that whatever you put into the atmosphere you will get in return ten fold maybe you know. I just wanna bring the essence of passion back to the table,” he voiced.
When he is producing he uses Ableton and his MPD32, he searches for the best samples. Using the MPD32, he finger drums all of his drums and samples. Below are some his most recent tracks and samples.
He is currently working on a double disc beat tape entitled “FEELS GUUD?” Also, He is working on a project with The Left Field Theory no details on a release date just yet.
“I’m just keeping it me, just doing my own thing, not ever really looking back just on to the next and I guess the way I sample is just off the wall, I don’t really care for much attention in the industry, just wanna be felt,” he sighed.
