Check Out Neaks’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Neaks.

Neaks is based in Los Angeles and has been focused on making tracks that have deep meanings. From when he was still a child, Neaks had a flair for theories of higher dimensions. He loved the books titled “Hyperspace” and “The Collection of Langston Hughes Poems”, which he regarded as his Bible. At the early age of 11, he began to write his poems. After hip-hop became a big part of his life at age 14, when he first learned about breakdancing, he began his swift path to success. He has moved on to develop a powerful voice and now has no problems delivering songs that make his fans sing along with genuine delight. His lifestyle videos are lined with versatile skills and he can use them to discuss dark arts and hidden things. Not the regular kind of artist, this rapper holds no prisoners when it comes to delivery of skill, talent, and passion. When not a musician, Neaks is a businessman with a thriving lifestyle brand and media platform, Tastemaker Collective, of which he’s a founding member. Neaks has the making of a creative leader and there’s so much more to expect from him.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I’m a single Dad, run a lifestyle brand, manage a few corporate brands and am a full-time musician so there’s definitely no lack of struggle in my life. I’ve found that focusing on being as positive as possible through obstacles while accepting that shit will always happen gives me balance through the ups and downs.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Well, I’m a rapper first and foremost, a singer, songwriter, engineer in training and a session producer. If I’m not making music in my home studio, I’m the guy that helps curate dope track ideas in the studio with other artists.

Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
I’ve had several mentors throughout my life in different subjects. I think as much as we want to force this process, it has to come naturally. That goes for networking as well. Being real and having authentic conversations when you do interact with others is the key.
