First off my name is Hotep. I grew up in North East Baltimore as a child. My parents and older brother all listened to old school r&b , rap, hip hop so as a kid I was forced to listen. When iPods first came out I had one & took that thing everywhere. I never knew music would be the best way for me to express myself as well as tell a story that people like myself can relate. Making music is something that’s in me not just something I do.
