Biography

Born in the Riggs Park section of Washington, D.C., Lyriciss (ne’ Robert Bailey), he was raised between DC and the Prince George’s County, MD suburbs. Citing DJ EZ Rock & Rob Base’s “It Takes Two” as his earliest memory of hip-hop, he started writing rhymes at the age of 9 after hearing The LOX’s “Money, Power, Respect” and being amazed by the song. Soon after, he gained a reputation early, tearing down ciphers and battles while only in middle school, rapping under the alias of “Knawlege”. This continued in high school, which was a constant distraction from studies, yet trained him to be sharper for his certain future in hip-hop. It was during this period that he met other DMV hip-hop artists like X.O., Pro’Verb, Wale, O. Smith (of Deep Space DMV), etc.

Now, at the age of 22, he’s already developed the mind of a businessman, focusing on the growth and future of his career. In 2009, he entered a situation with DMV-based label Inner Loop Records and has signed a production deal with EQuinox Professionals. He has also been inducted into a group of elite musicians with URB Magazine’s Next 1000 Program and has built a strong presence as an up-and-coming force, being posted consistently on the world’s most credible music blogs and websites, including 2dopeboyz.com, illroots.com, and many more. With the recent surge of attention brought on to the DMV hip-hop scene, Lyriciss is asked if he feels any competition in the race to get signed. “None at all”, he replies. “Why? Because one, I know where my skills are with the lyrics… I know it, the people that hear the music know it, and that’s the end of that. Two, because anyone in this area trying to make it and have true love for the music, I show love to them and I consider them family.
