XLS Short Info

Music gave me the voice that I previously found it hard to find. Since the age of 4, I have wanted to get across opinions and views verbally, it was a speech impediment that prevented me from doing this. Stammering was a frustrating daily occurrence. But with years of attending speech therapist appointments, I have significantly improved in controlling my speech. Hip hop played a big part in improving my confidence. Since discovering hip hop and the art form of rap, the speech impediment has taken the back seat in my life. When the instrumental is playing, when the record button has been pressed, nobody would even think that I have a speech impediment. This just shows the power that hip hop has in everyday life. Hip hop didn't invent anything, hip hop reinvented everything.

Growing up listening to various genres, music has always been a keen interest. During my primary school years, I began to play the trumpet and played in regular school events. Performing music has always been an interest of mine. I have experienced life in Padiham, Nelson and Burnley and currently reside in Burnley. Since discovering hip hop in my early teens, I have been influenced by the likes of Eminem, Dr. Dre, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Xzibit, 50 Cent, Notorious B.I.G, Tupac Shakur, Jay Z, Wu Tang Clan, D12, Mobb Deep and many more. My mixtape 'Silent Treatment' is now available from the download page and it features fellow TOTTE artists Faze, SC, Verce, along with BBC Radio 1 Xtra presenter Charlie Sloth and hip hop legend Nas.

I continue to work on new music along with promoting the label and its artists to new listeners in order to help it live up to its name, Talk of The Town Entertainment.
