APHEENX is creating a path never done before in the music scene. His thought-provoking progressive lyrics are infused in hip hop, club and pop tracks which will establish him as a international genre busting super star. His journey has brought him to a point in his life where he tries each day to live by this mantra: “Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu.” Which means: “May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
The Divine ones manifested his spirit and he emerged in the Midwest. He started rapping as a adolescent being influenced by Public Enemy and Run DMC. As a teen, he veered off the straight and narrow path. Being a strong-willed individual, he found his way back and got himself together. He started doing gospel rap with his late childhood friend, Joe.They created a group called Angels in Battle until Joe passed on from asthma complications. He continued Angels in Battle with long time friends Matt, Mark and his little brother, Fred A.K.A. Juice Lee.
Life caused the guys to go in separate ways while APHEENX continued on his musical path. Along the way, he discovered some interesting and enlightening views. Partnered with a paranormal encounter that changed his perception of the world, himself and the mysteries of life and death which reflect in his current music and comic book series.
“What if I had a conversation with god and I was told to believe that before being black, African, a male, an United States citizen, before a environmentalist, before a emcee, I must first put the idea that I’m a human being having a spiritual experience with the ultimate creator consciousness and the context of that idea is more important than the things I’ve listed?
If I was told to believe that and act on it, what would have to happen in order for you to feel hopeless?”
A philosopher at heart, APHEENX’ s music will create and make life fun as well as always give you something to ponder.
