A Prequel to The Kid Rated R

From the depths of one’s soul, music can enrich, enlighten, and enthuse. The Kid Rated R is an example of this, with his fresh, crafty, and lyrical songs. He is a musician that grew up around a musical father, which helped hone his taste toward various styles of songwriting. “Different genres of music never stopped playing in my household, from salsa to soul, to old school hip hop. I have been heavily influenced by the music of my life.” It’s no wonder why listeners of all background can become inspired by The Kid’s music. “I feel that it is a blessing to have the appreciation for music that I have. Music changed my life, and I hope to do the same for others through mine.”

The Kid Rated R chooses not to compare himself to others, since—in an essence - music is to be heard, regardless of the genre. “My style is called hip hop, but I make music for those who appreciate good production, good lyrical content, and a delivery from the soul.” This creative philosophy allows The Kid to establish his art with no boundaries - an art that depends on humanity and the self for creative expression. “My art feeds off of my emotion.” Thus, the fans of The Kid's music come from all walks of life and are listeners who appreciate his musical versatility. “My music is a combination of different emotions rolled up in one, which all people can relate to…My image conveys raw emotion and an honest opinion.”

Despite his diverse influence, The Kid likes to draw inspiration from some well-known artists of the hip hop world: “Timberland for his production, Tupac for his songwriting, and Biggie for his lyrical content and swagger.” But when The Kid isn’t working on music, he indulges in a little R & R with family and friends. “I like to relax, clear my mind, and LIVE LIVE!!'

The Kid Rated R is definitely an artist to look out for. He likes to stay busy and collaborate with as many artists as possible. “If it’s hot, I want to be on it.” And no matter what, it is a priority for The Kid to stay original and stay on top of what he does. He encourages everyone to believe in themselves, “even if all the doors are closed. Believe in you and others will follow.”
