Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Hip Hop artist Pierre Bless sure knows how to stay relevant and set the trend with the ladies. His newest single “What’s Ya Sign” is currently going viral on Instagram, shining light on all the horoscope lovers. You can see influencers like Laura Govan (@lauramgovan) and Juliette “Juju” Castaneda (@iamjuju_) playing the sample lyric from Biggie Small’s “Big Poppa” on their Instagram stories followed by their zodiac sign. The number of shares is growing organically every day and has even been on several radio shows including The Breakfast Club, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, The Steve Harvey Morning Show and The Sheryl Underwood Radio Morning Show.
Born in Nuremberg, Germany, Pierre moved back to the states at age 2 and was raised in Albemarle, North Carolina. He started rapping for fun in 7th grade. He vividly recalls his friends making beats on the desk while rapping Cash Money lyrics, and he’d start freestyling out of nowhere. It wasn’t until winning a talent show at age 15 that he decided to take it more seriously, using the prize money to purchase studio equipment. Pierre mentions, “Ever since I started rapping it has become a part of me. I was infatuated with hip hop artists’ lifestyles.” Pierre would scour through The Source and XXL magazines every month and recorded Rap City The Basement on VHS tapes for every episode. “I studied my favorite musicians very closely and mocked their styles for years to become the artist I am today.”
When asked which artists inspire him, he mentions Nas, Jay Z and Rick Ross- Nas for his lyrical ability and Jay Z for his beat selection. The independent artist centers his musical career brand around spreading love and the Law of Attraction. The lifestyle he represents is even embedded in his artist name, as he views every day as a blessing. I have a lifestyle brand called “Spread Love Life” which is all about Law of Attraction and good energy.
The independent artist has a couple of projects up his sleeve for the new year. He’s currently working on the music video to “What’s Ya Sign”. In the summer of 2021, he released a record titled “F.E.A.” ft DJ Drama and is working on the music video to roll out this year.
“I am also working on a project titled “Vision Board” to be released in 2022 but our main focus is releasing singles.” Pierre Bless doesn’t hesitate to give credit to those who’s helped him along the way including house producer and partner in crime, StreetzMentor., CEO Miami Mike (Soulja Boy’s manager) and Quality Control marketing manager, Mr. Too Official.
Outside of the studio, Pierre loves to spread his love on the stage. He’s performed on main stages at SXSW and has opened up for Jacquees, Key Glock, Asian Doll and Toosii in 2021. He’s at the tail end of a national tour, a regional tour and a HBCU college tour in 2021. “I’m constantly performing so stay tuned for upcoming tour dates. When not basking in his music career success, Pierre also runs a homecare agency in Charlotte, NC.
