Arash Motian was born in Tehran, Iran on June 9th 1988. Being only 12 years old when brought to live in the United States, he was now having to adapt to a whole new side of the world. After just few years into his move, he was starting to notice the Hip-Hop influence around school campus. It wasn't something that he had ever been introduced to but it settled with him right away. With battle raps happening everyday, he liked the idea of being the cool kid and tell his story.
After hearing his first Persian Rap song, it sparked something in him to pursue music. Reaching back to his heritage, he noticed that HipHop had similarities to Persian poetry which was writing meaningful words and put them in a pattern. He and his cousin Nima put together their own recording studio and entered their first stages of music making. After trying to pursue music in a group, both eventually started to take on a solo act. Motian is now residing in Dallas,TX as he continues working on creating awareness for his latest EP “Resurrection."
" I wasn't raised with HipHop in my ears, as far as i was concerned it didn't exist. After moving to America and discovering Hip-Hop I was able to connect to it instantly. I started by going back in time and listening to Tupac, Biggie, DMX and Rakim. Some of my favorite artists at the time were Eminem, Ice Cube, G unit and Tech N9ne. After hearing their music, I started to form my own style and flow based on what was in my head already. I wanted to be a lyricist, but I also wanted to appeal to people from different continents"
The Goal is to connect with fans on a global scale. The objective is to make an impact on the youth and to inspire the individuals that don't quite fit the norm in society. .
