A word from Mayes: I am a positive, open minded, & creative individual. Characteristics that manifest in my music. Even with all its faults and shortcomings, I love making music using the genre / oral tradition known as "rap". I strive to make thought provoking inspirational hip hop that will transcend time, space, language barriers and territorial boundaries.
About Embassi : Also, I am a member of a southern hip hop trio known as Embassi. We are currently working on solo endeavors as well as group projects. We have several mixtapes, an EPK and a working demo. We primarily work with one producer, Dayz, but we have meet new brothers and sisters in music production who are sharing with us.
