About Truth Speaks
TRUTH SPEAKS has a style which transcends the typical description of what is currently labeled as hip hop. As a classically trained musician, Truth uses what he learned in lessons along with his unequaled passion for hip hop to deliver melodic, yet lyrical, verses over original and industry beats alike.
A keen understanding of the streets, refinement in the class room, and a blue collar work ethic are qualities that allow Truth to utilize an extensive vocabulary and clever manipulation of the spoken word. These skills help him create songs that not only paint a vivid picture of the life he has lived, but, more importantly, stay on topic. He is no stranger to pain and hard times and this is evident on songs like “One of These Days” and “Tryin’ to Get Rich” where Truth finds a way to express emotion with such effectiveness that the listener can easily relate to the content. At the same time, upbeat songs such as "Finally" are like no other due to an uncanny ability to address his personal accomplishments enthusiastically, but without embellishment. Therefore, Truth constantly injects a potent dose of realism that is hard to find in music today.
The brutal honesty and self-reflection infused in his latest mixtape project, Above Ground, touches on several levels of consciousness providing a unique and fluid sound that engages the listener by inviting he, or she, into Truth’s mind, heart, and soul. He successfully creates street anthems, stories of love gone astray, and tales of ambition with seamless effort and great potential for mass appeal. Through a diverse approach, knowledge of the industry, and a confident nature, Truth is positioning himself to overcome obstacles and become one of the most talented emcees to ever emerge from Massachusetts. Truth Speaks just might be the missing link between the "golden era” of hip hop and current fans of truthful and honest music. He is the complete embodiment of hip hop and definitely a worthy representative of the culture. Stay tuned....
