About 5th Child
A true triple-threat... artist... producer... world-class lover....... well if the last one doesn't work for you, 5th Child has also worked as a recording engineer for a major label. Raised in Jackson, MS and heavily influenced by the lyricism and style of Jay-Z, the eccentricity of OutKast, the southern drawl and bravado of T.I., and the social awareness of Talib Kweli, 5th Child can best be described as the super hero type of emcee. The blaring horns of 70's soul and jazz samples over the pounding drums reminiscent of mid-90s hip-hop lace the soundtrack for this 22-year old lyricist. With 3 solo projects under the belt and a laundry list of features (production, and as an artist), no Kryptonite has been able to knock this superhuman artist off balance...
