My stage name is Rkade (formally known as Raven). I was raised in England and Barbados and being inspired by the rap artist LL Cool J, I discovered my passion for hip hop music when I was thirteen years of age. My lyrics are street positive, I'm on that conscious boat with lupe fiasco/ common/ nas and the roots to name a few .. This is the style of music that I love to write and talk about, what is going on in the world today, whether I put it to a club or a sad instrumental - This is who I am .. So peace and love to all and may God save all of us not just the King and Queen.
