BLKRAW was born in Oakland, California on June 29th. He grew up, however, between Tampa, FL. and El Centro, CA. He was encouraged to start his career in the music industry by his now deceased brother, Sean C. Fuller.
BLKRAW was only 17 years old when they had a car accident in 1998. He has since dedicated his time and efforts to himself & brother’s dream to make it in the music industry. BLKRAW has opened for Slip N Slides Rick Ross, in Tampa, FL. Club 112, Nina Ski in Mexicali, Mexico and E-40 from Sick Wid It Records in El Centro just to name a few.
BLKRAW is Unique, one of a kind, energetic & the hardest working unsigned artist out of El Centro. You can’t put him in a box. He has a flow that is universal to all, not just one group. BLKRAW takes his listeners on a musical journey that has an all around hip-hop and R&B feel. His hip-hop style is smooth, great vocals, great lyrics and great rhythms.
Growing up with music being the face of his household, he has always been surrounded by music. If it was not his mother playing her old-school jams, (Smokey Robinson, Temptations) it was his big brother singing, Jodeci or writing and giving a talent show. In the late 80′s early 90′s, after his brother’s death, he started to take his music career serious. In 2003 he began to record songs and has not looked back since.
BLKRAW gets most of his inspiration from music itself. Artist such as LL Cool J, Nelly, Big Daddy Kane, Kool Mo Dee, Heavy D, 2 Pac and B.I.G. His work ethic is what sets him apart from the others. His self-identity, what he lacks in one area he makes up for in the next
BLKRAW would like his future fans to understand he is human just like they are. When working in the studio he works hard to connect with his fans though his lyrical content. He also takes a few hours out of what he calls a busy day to thank/respond to his fans.
BLKRAW single, “Do Ya Right”, has charted on internet and satellite radio nationally at #8 with Urban Top 30 Mediaguide Artist Adds & #5 on Live365. He has also released his album “Alter Ego” on March 28th of 2012 and became a finalist on Home Turf radio for his single ‘Striving Artist”.
