“What makes me different From Other Artist”
In the state of Hip Hop, many artist feel they have to make or create records that fit the newest trend or movement instead of being original and innovative, or music that involves a lot of boasting, bragging, and false exaggerations; “not to say I don’t do these things” however what makes me different is I use a method called “Perfect Flaw” which basically means that I encourage or embrace my flaws in my music which makes it easier for my listeners and fans to relate to. It gives listeners a sense of awareness or realization that I’m still an individual that goes through the same day-to-day highs and lows life brings, in addition to they can feel the sincerity, honesty, and passion that’s missing in todays modern music. Sometimes I feel I created my own nitch or stamp by adding my personal experiences in songs like Conceited, Dummy Mission and Hero Girl, which are all songs from my debut mixtape : “Backseat Daydreamers”. With my witty personality, clever rhyme scheme, and comedic theatrics in my songs it creates style that can’t be duplicated or imitated, furthermore which makes me different from a lot of new artist we see worldwide on a day to day basis. Utmost Ent, CEO Duane Ferrel believes and says “Chance is the future Hip-Hop”
