Tha MESSAGE, Driven By Fire

“At the end of the day if my music doesn’t touch your soul and fill your heart with hope, then I haven’t done my job as an artist.”

Tha MESSAGE is no stranger to struggle; he was born into a blue collar family with a long line of field and mill workers. Throughout his youth he moved many times being forced to try to fit in and was often teased about his shortcomings. His family eventually settled in his father’s home state of Idaho after moving about the country. Tha MESSAGE began his love affair with music after the passing of his grandmother who had been a published author. He made the promise to himself to take on her legacy and to continue working through his words just like she had. He started simply by writing poetry and then that transitioned into rhyme.

He first chose the name MESSAGE because he felt as if his music served a purpose. He wanted to spread a message of hope or awareness to the masses all while delivering lyrics that everyone on the struggle could  relate to. He soon grew to a high underground level with countless high reviews and accolades. After leaving home at the age of 18, Tha MESSAGE began a journey that brought him to true poverty, trouble finding work in the heat of the recession, a battle with malnourishment, and drug addiction. After a long and hellish 8 months of battling his vice he finally was able to quit using during his trip to NYC to meet with his first major label, Eminem’s Shady Records.

As of late 2012 and on into 2013 he has come back full force using each of his demons as fuel for an ever burning fire that continues to drive him to greatness, though he is still on the struggle. For him the work never stops; he still feels his time is coming shortly. He knows he’s destined for something amazing, He intends to never stop until he finally gets the recognition he deserves and hopes that all his fans will continue to support him and help him to continue to spread Tha MESSAGE!
