I grew up on American Hip-Hop...that era. My idols were MC Lyte, Public Enemy, Eric B. and Rakim, KRS One and Lauryn Hill is the closest thing I have to a Patron Saint. I just love her.
I'm weird. Totally influenced by Silent Films because I couldn't speak English until I was 14. I love Abel Gance silent movies and Garbo and Betty Boop.
