At 11, Corey was exposed to NWA, Tupac, Biggie, Lil Wayne, Nas, Jay Z, and much more. Hearing this music and listening to other people rap about their struggles gave him hope. Corey fell in love with music and used it as an escape. Corey started writing music at the age of 12 & started recording at 16. Through his love for music, Corey also started writing poetry/spoken word.
Corey is a very lyrical artist that uses metaphors, admirable vocabulary, and a little storytelling to elaborate on his struggles in a very unique way. The way he puts his songs together and the overall message of his projects are all very poetic and he also has an old school hip hop type of vibe. Corey is definitely a distinctive hip hop artist compared to the hottest rappers out now. Music has certainly shaped Corey’s life for the better as he always states, “without music, I’d be dead right now.”
