He moved a lot as a child becoming exposed to wide range of music from east coast boom bap rap to west coast gangsta rap and everything in-between. He is well rounded musically due to his family wanting to expose him to as many different genre as they could. The genres ranged from jazz, classical, reggae, soul and funk. His family taught him that good music is that good music regardless of genre.  Some of his favorite artist are Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Linkin Park, Nat King Cole, Paramore, Marvin Gaye, Robert Glasper and Prince.

Influenced by her city and her coast (East Coast).  Passionate about music, channeling her love through writings and investments in the dopest shows for the most relevant artists around.  Conscious rap and boom bap is where her heart is.  “Mumble rap” production is where her heads at.  Dabbling in the silly and the serious sides of music, appreciating all sides of the spectrum.  Genres don’t matter, the vibe does.  Fav artists Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Kanye West, Vince Staples, A Tribe Called Quest, Tupac, Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and Beyoncé.

He lives somewhere in the Bay Area. He smokes dark purple. He has smoked with your favorite artists, while actually in their studio sessions, so he know about the music industry.

Writer
Precious Jewel
Precious Jewel grew up in a large family with six siblings. Which meant six different personalities and six different tastes in music, music being the one thing everyone enjoyed and shared. Her mom writes poems, books, and music. So that’s where she gets her passion for writing and love for music. With a dad from New York and a mom from Arizona, no genre of music was ever off-limits. She found a way to combine her passion for helping others, writing, and music by starting her own website for underground music. Some of her favorite artists include Erykah Badu, Kanye, Tupac, Anita Baker, Maroon 5, Pink, Chance, and Goapele. Check out her blog here.
