Hartford born, London, England native Front Page considers himself “quite the modern nomad,” traveling the world frequently since birth. When asked, he mentions:
“My DNA as an artist originates from my actual DNA and culture, the first music I ever heard was Reggae because my parents use to play it.”
This holds true in most of his music, where he effortlessly fuses both Rap and Reggae to create a delivery and flow that’s all his own.
Front Page has coined this unique style “Rudeboyism,” which is what he considers a sub-genre — or a combination of “golden era lyricism,” “rudeboy flow,” thought-provoking depth and refreshing charisma.
Seeing as though his flow is so unique, he’s able to use his music as a conduit to express his view on various issues:
“That’s why my name is Front Page, you see the newspaper, it gives you a new issue daily…that’s what you’ll get listening to me.”
Page uses this angle to address his feelings honestly and bluntly without a care for who’s offended.
This raw energy is what made him an artist that many have been keeping an eye out for — most recently, the Huffington Post.
To compliment his passionate ora, Front Page has an unparalleled stage presence that sets him apart from any others. He mentions Busta Rhymes as comparison:
“Busta Rhymes is my favorite rapper, so whenever I hit that stage, I’m just trying to be like him, not only just an artist.”
He doesn’t stop there: Front Page is also an actor (recently seen in the independent film Triple R), a youth motivational speaker and product of academia. He is also currently working on a new set of releases early this year.
In the mean time, one could witness his knack for lyricism on the 20 Year Jux Freestyle web series, which was given praise by Hip-Hop legend Treach of Naughty By Nature.
Either way, be sure to get familiar with the passionate, creative and insightful lyrical flow of Front Page, especially as he displays his solid path, identity and worldview.
