Striving to make it in Hip-Hop, where the competition is thick and the grind is endless, up and coming artist and member of the Universal Zulu Nation, Special, has constructed his own lane with the success of reaching 1 million hits on YouTube with his social media influenced song T-Shirt Time. The thriving success of this old school lyricist has garnered critical acclaim across the globe with commercial projects released in Germany and Italy. Special always approaches his verses and being in the lab with a hip hop mentality, and a sense of integrity. Honing his skills among the Hip-Hop elite and newcomers has given Special the confidence to create a diverse body of work thus far, working with hip-hop vets like Craig G (Juice Crew), El Da Sensei (The Artifacts) and Sadat X (Brand Nubian) to say the least.
