Rapper Earl Lee Allen was born—and raised—in Hammond, Indiana, but currently resides in San Antonio, Texas, a city ripe with hip-hop talent and history. While he enjoys his work a supervisor at a juvenile treatment center, making music is his ‘true’ passion. “I believe the music I create is relatable and can make a positive impact in someone’s life,” he says. He describes his music as having a therapeutic approach to it—it’s conscience, thought provoking material.
“I enjoy writing and performing spoken word,” says Earl, who began with poetry base before transitioning into writing hip-hop over soulful instrumentals. He initially became inspired by his younger brother, Rico Loso—an artist who has been crafting material for years. He’s quick to acknowledge that his biggest influences and motivating factors, though, are his adoring wife and daughter. “My aim is to make music my kids can be proud of–[music] that will make them proud to say that’s my dad.”
To date, the relatively new artist has released numerous songs, most notably, “More Than Life,” “LOVE ME,” “Piece Of Heaven’,” “Make it Okay” and “Going Nowhere.”
