Hometown: Myrtle Beach/ Brooklyn
A North Carolina native who graduated from Carolina Forest High School before moving to Brooklyn Rise Freeman (aka Rise X), is an emcee who describes his style part spoken word, part traditional hip-hop.
His unique tone — a bit nasal and high-pitched — along with well-composed lyrics make for a sound that stands out from the crowd of cookie cutter emcees spitting overly iced-out ryhmes.
According to his bio, he’s not trying to be Hip-Hop’s savior, he’s never been shot, he’s never sold a gram, he comes from nothing, believes in God and makes music.
His releases include 2011 mixtape "Who Is Rize X?" and features with various local and regional artists.
