Hip Hop music can be both beneficial and destructive. The genre can be destructive in a way that it encourages violence and a lifestyle in the streets. It can be beneficial because music has a way of bringing people together and sometimes does a better job explaining emotions than words can.
Originally born in Guam, rising hip hop artist Crook Guam spent most of the beginning of his life acclimated to the streets. From a young age, the creative has been inspired by hip hop music, embodying its lifestyle and lyrics in physical form. This led to some troubling times for Crook Guam who was constantly in and out of juvenile centers from the ages of 13-17. However, at the age of 17, the MC lived through moments that would change his life forever.
Crook Guam was facing 15 years of prison time when he gained a new perspective on life. It was in his prison cell that he started to read the Bible and came to know God. Things started to change inside of the young artist’s mind. After serving a short term, the severity of Crook Guam’s charges dropped drastically and the songwriter was released on probation.
Ever since he walked out of those prison walls, Crook Guam hasn’t wasted a moment of time, now on a mission to encourage others to never give up on their dream.
As an independent hip hop artist, Crook Guam has reached thousands of listeners worldwide. “I want people to relate and connect with my music on a personal level and motivate them to achieve whatever goal they have in their lives,” explained the artist.
Crook Guam’s next moves include an exclusive Nipsey Hussle record which is set to the released sometime this year.
