In most of my songs, you can find themes of love, life, and politics. I'm still finding my true style, and I can only get better!"

This may sound vague, but it's true. Perhaps a better way to put it is that I had no outer artists who influenced me.
I wanted to make music because I knew that it was a means of implicit communication with the broader audience." Artists/bands I admire: "I admire Blue Scholars, Rakim, Brother Ali, Nujabes, Substantial, Marcus D and many more underground hip-hop artists. A commonality between all these artists can be their passion for rapping. You can actually hear that they worked hard on the lyrics, editing, and portrayal of themes." Writing Process: "When I write lyrics, I apply somewhat the properties of 'freewheeling.' Freewheeling is when you write down anything, everything that pops to your mind on a blank sheet of paper... Obviously though, I don't just jot down random things.
I turn on a beat and depending on the measures, I have a basic idea on the style of my lyrics. Once I come up with a common theme and have something going, I rap the lyrics to the beat and from then on it's just revise, revise, revise." Why I do it: "I do this because I believe it is a great way to increase one's understanding of the world. Not only that, but also because music is like a piece of writing. Now, there are many factions in rapping and I guess I am different from what we hear in the radio." Performances: Mixem does not perform as of yet.
