Northern Virginia Emcee Black Cobain aims to be legendary and has ambitions to leave an imprint in hip hop and music history like his namesake predecessor Kurt Cobain; an imprint that resonates long after he drops the mic he calls life. Signed to Independent Label, The Board Administration™ (Le'Greg O. Harrison), Black released debut mixtape “Now or Never” (2009); a catalog of epic proportions that discusses his transition from adolescence to adulthood, the dynamics of male camaraderie and rivalry in the inner city, and his overall plight into manhood.
For Black, hip hop serves as a muse that enables him to tell stories that speak to his growth and development as an individual, professional, and man. His artistry is more about wordplay and storytelling and less about current trends and popular culture adoption, values core to the foundation of lyricism and true hip hop. Black Cobain is no ordinary Rapper, his unique flow and signature sound embody the true essence of Emceeing and are indicative of his true passion to keep it alive during a time where Emcees are no longer respected as the champions and true pioneers of rap and hip hop culture.
Black’s Mixtape, “Now” released August 30, 2010 features Board Administration™ label mates Fat Trel and Ms. Sasha and features from Raheem Devaughn, Tre (UCB), Wiz Khalifa, Wale, and Young Chris. Black’s classic style is reminiscent of old school flow despite the infectious demand and trend in hip hop culture for melodies drowned by beats and dance worthy beats coupled with punch line rhymes and catch phrases. His non conforming sound, passion, and quest for musical nirvana, if such a place exists, will land him at the legendary status he seeks. “And they say he who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life…”-
