With an early start in Waldorf, Maryland and the likes of DMX and Nas to motivate him, Duran has proven to be a poet, emcee and lyricist whose storytelling rhymes transcend his listeners to a world with no limits, only dreams. In the beginning, this curious child of the East Coast was just exploring Hip-Hop and organically learning about rhyme flow, skill and pattern. At 12, while most of his peers were chasing skirts, Duran was on the school bus bumping tracks like ODB’s “Baby I Like It Raw”. Now based in Atlanta, Duran’s kept a low profile but a high energy, dedicating hours to the studio and perfecting his knack for melodies and concept rap. A self-described dreamer, his ongoing motto remains the same; “I see stars”, a euphemism for the endless pursuit of a dream.
