The fundamentals of foundational Hip-Hop pulsate vibrantly through the veins of the multi-dimensional artist, John Robinson. Born in the South Bronx and raised in Far Rockaway, Queens and Central NJ, this native New Yorker has sojourned and resided in the underground scenes of New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Los Angeles with the result of creating a sound that casino online is universally magnetic to hip-hop audiences of various backgrounds.
