Micwise; “If I had to describe myself as an artiste I would say that I am a realist who speaks his mind and tells it like he sees it. I see the good, the bad, the ugly and I sugarcoat nothing. Music has allowed me to escape certain realities of life while at the same time dwelling on them through writing songs. The release I feel after writing, recording and subsequently releasing a song is unfathomable. As a fan of lyric driven hip hop, I take a unique approach to getting my feelings out there, as I have been known to pride myself on wordplay and intricate rhyme schemes. I guess you can say it’s the “rap nerd” in me.
Coming up I was influenced by a plethora of emcees of varying styles and subject matter. Spitters like Kool G Rap, Rakim, Black Thought, Big Pun, Jay-Z, Nas, The Notorious B.I.G, Andre 3000, Eminem, Ghostface Killah, Big L, Mos Def, Pusha T, Jadakiss, Big Daddy Kane, Fabolous & Redman are the tip of the iceberg with regards to who I consider as influences. I try to uphold the values and traditions of all true artistes when I make music as I continue to make contributions to this artform which i love dearly.”
