Legend started his music career in 2008, when he performed with his 8th Grade group, BXS, at the Glenview Middle School talent show. He had entertained as one of the talent show’s MC’s, while performing, along with his advisory class, a remix he wrote and recorded to “Crank Dat Soulja Boy.” The song and performance gained so much attention that B100 (99.7) interviewed the teacher of the advisory class and played the song on their station. From there, he began to take his music career more seriously, which lead to more showcases and more performance opportunities to open for major industry artists, such as Twista, Travis Porter, Trina, Stat Quo, G-Unit, Lil' Wil, Lil' Wyte, Lord Infamous and WWF/WWE Legend, Gangrel.
Legend currently, has released his EP, Champagne Gold to Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, TIDAL, Amazon, and more. He has been featured in New Articles for the Quad Citie Times, The Dispatch and has begun working closely with the NAACP, recently performing their largest annual fundraising banquet and award ceremony. Legend’s overall goal is to become a mainstream artist that can change the face of music. He wants to guide music away from the negative rep that it gets as hip-hop. Eventually, he would like to create more opportunities for artists who have no other outlet, while investing back into his community.
