Rising rap artist, lyrist, and performer, Isaiah Stokes, who performs as Isaiah Lee, was born in Chester, Pennsylvania. Isaiah Lee is the product of a musically inclined family who are well-known throughout the Delaware Valley for their ability to play teach piano, sing and play keyboards. Unlike his family, Lee found his musical niche through his inherent ability to play the drums and piano in church. Though he was an accomplished musician, Lee always had a deep-seated passion for rap and sincere zeal for performing. Since his youth, he saw himself as one day being a performer who would eventually put lyrics to his own music. The primary epitasis which solidified Lee’s passion was hearing his brother and cousin perform on a nationally-syndicated radio station, based out of Philadelphia. It was at this moment that Lee then decided to take the progressive steps to jumpstart his rap career!
In 2002, Lee and his family moved to Delaware to start a new life and for better education. When Lee was 16-years old, he released his first mixtape titled, “Get Outta My Lane”. This mixtape was managed and produced by his former manager, Austin Daniels. After he released his second mixtape, which received rave reviews from his peers and other local rappers, he was asked to be featured on the Tri-State Tour. This tour was hosted by many local colleges, universities and bars in Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
