My name is Corey (Kid Reign) and my music is inspired by my reactions to situations that I face in life. Im empathetic and insightful and sometimes emotional. I keep my songs up to date with time and I may add past emotions to what I write. I started practicing writing rhymes when I heard Cross Roads by Bone Thugs in Harmony. I also practiced melodies while I sung in the choir. I developed my perspective while reading the Bible. I learned to write 3 verse songs and hooks while paraphrasing others lyrics into my own words which later developed into my own style of expression.
My presentation was influenced by the Cash Money Millionaires and Hot Boys as well as Randy Save including Hulk Hogan.
Much of my time was spent learning about by myself and skill building. I grew up with 2 sibling, my grandmother and mother. My family allowed me to go outside and play with my close friends, cousins and brother. We made our own rap group and songs. Much of our time was spent playing football and basketball from Elementary up to our sophmore year in college.
A lot the pressure that can be felt within my music me avoiding the peer pressure in which people fall victim to on a daily basis. People fall victim to drugs, self doubt, poverty, criminal lifestyles etc due to peer pressure. There was a point where I would slip up in high school due to the pressures that I would deal with at home. My mom would bring a lot of stress home from 2 to 3 jobs due to being a single parent but my grandmother would help support while i stayed with her until my mother picked me and my brother up from my grandmothers after being fed and entertained with games and jokes along with my sister and friends.
I was an A student throughout elementary to high school.
Lansing School District was full of drugs and gang violence so eventually my mother moved to a school district not as bad with drugs but was racists. Its known as Holt School District. Both districts are in Michigan. A lot of my family has fallen victim to criminal lifestyles but they’ve pressured me to stick with my talents and education as well as my businesses along with my brother Dionte (Da Baker). I’m graduating from Miles College with a Social Behaviorial Science degree during 2017.
