A force to be reckoned with, BLKRAW was born in Oakland, California on June 29th. He grew up however, between Tampa, FL. and El Centro, CA. He was encouraged to start his career in the music industry by his now deceased brother, Sean C. Fuller. Blkraw was only 17 years old when they had a car accident. He has since dedicated his time and efforts to himself and his brother’s dream to make it in the music industry. Blkraw has opened shows for some of hip-hops big names in the music industry, Nina Ski, E-40 and MMG’s very own Rick Ross just to name a few. Blkraw is energetic and has a very strong work ethic. One of the hardest working artist out of El Centro. You can’t put him in a box. He has a flow that is universal to all, not just one group. Blkraw takes his listeners on a musical journey that has an all round hip-hop and R&B feel. His hip-hop style is smooth; great lyrics and great rhythms.
Growing up with music being the face of his household, he has always been surrounded by music. If it wasn’t his mother playing her old-school jams, (Smokey Robinson, Temptations) it was his big brother singing Jodeci or writing and giving a talent show. After his brother’s death, he started to take his music career serious. In 2006 he began to record songs and has not looked back since.Blkraw gets most of his inspiration from music itself. Artists such as LL Cool J, Nelly, Big Daddy Kane, Kool Mo Dee, Heavy D, 2 Pac and B.I.G. His work ethic is what sets him apart from the others. His self-identity, what he lacks in one area he makes up for in the next.Blkraw started and signed his self to his own independent label “LKR” “Loyalty Krew Respect”.
