A Little History About Me and Music
Music has been a great part of my life. It has helped me through the worst of times and just helps me express myself through the lyrics. I enjoy dancing to music as well, when i dance it helps me release the emotions i have build up. I grew in an Indian and Pakistani household, so the first music i was ever introduced to was Indian music. but as i started to get older the music i started to like was different than my parents. From a young age i was interested in hip-hop and rap. when i was growing up in the early 2000s some of the artist who were popular were Lil Wayne, Eminem, 50 Cent, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, and many many other more great artist. As i start middle school i start hanging out with my older cousins a little bit more. After hanging with them i got more into rap and hip-hop especially old school hip-hop. Rap has over took rock as the #1 music genre.
