Biography

BE.water (Sam Ledford III), his name derived from the famous Bruce Lee quote about water, is an up-and-coming emcee/producer representing Inland Empire, California and currently residing in Chicago, IL. He is on a quest to return the soul and meaning of hip hop to its original roots, freedom of expression.
“Being an 80’s baby, I grew up listening to a wide variety of Hip Hop during its “Golden Age”. Whether it be Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest, NWA or LL Cool J, I enjoyed the music because it was real. These people loved what they did, even though they gained profit they still thought it necessary to promote theiur best efforts. Music needs love again.”
His foray into music initially wasn’t all in all hip hop related. “My first memory of anything lyric that I wrote is a poem I wrote in 8th grade called ‘In The Ghetto’. It received good reviews from my peers, so i continued to write.” He cites Pete Rock and Talib Kweli’s collaboration “Fly Til I Die” Off of 2004’s Soul Survivor II as his inspiration to begin taking Hip Hop seriously “That song was, to me, the epitome of what the essence of hip hop is. Everything… from the beat to the lyrics to the presentation was so in tune I felt compelled to make music.
Water would begin to write and record raps with his high school friends, experimenting with his new love. The creation of these early songs began his exploration of the Emcee realm.
