There is something appealing about a novice artist who possesses the charisma and confidence of a seasoned guru in the rap game. That something compels you to listen intently. And that up- and-coming rap phenom is E Green. E Green hails from the Crescent City, New Orleans LA, and was re-routed to Atlanta via Hurricane Katrina. As a teen in his native New Orleans East he formed a rap group with childhood friends, and after the group disbanded he ventured out as a solo artist. He is influenced by a variety of artists, ranging from hip-hop legends to local performers from his hometown. His lyrics mirror his life experiences – such as the untimely death of his brother Derrick in 1995 – these incidents, along with his supportive family and friends, are what keep him motivated and inspired to become a major powerhouse in the rap game.
