Artist On The Rise: Da Invisible Man
On The 6th Proudly Presents Artist On The Rise: Da Invisible Man
Da Invisible Man comes from Panama but grew up in the streets of NY. Take a minute and get to know this up and coming artist.
In his own words:
I am Da Invisble Man, CEO of Waterbearer Entertainment & Villain Trust productions.
I got my start many years ago being a part of a super group named the Pentagon, or the Gon (Getting Organized Now). It was a neighborhood crew that
started with just 5 members which grew into immaculate numbers.
We had a deal on the table with Mike Tyson's label but I ended up going to prison with a 25 year sentence. I received my time back, came home, graduated college and decided to pursue my dream of owning my own label.
After years of going through different avenues to get in the business I decided to do it myself. With the help of my business partner Shizza we were able to start our own companies.
My story is not much different from any other young black male growing up in America. I was born in Panama and grew up from East New York to Flatbush and all points in between. I grew up in a single parent home and raised in these mean streets. I sold drugs, robbed people and stole until I ended up in prison.
I had a knack for poetry and music but wasn't give the opportunity to express my talents. I learned to put my experiences in my music and told my story and wanted to share it with the world. My music is soothing to the soul and I wanted to give the world my life, the good the bad and the ugly.
My only regret is not taking my talents more serious years ago, while I was running the streets.
I just finished my mixtape "Black Hoody Season" hosted by one of NYC's Core DJ's, Dj Styles. It's available on Amazon, GooglePlay, Emusic, Spotify, Zune, Nokia, Rhapsody, Itunes.
Next I'm about to drop a solo project called "Da Memoirz" which is also hosted by Dj Styles.
So far one of my greatest accomplishments is graduating from College. I'm the first male in my family to do it. Also I'm proud of myself for starting up my own company when everyone was against me and saying I couldn't do it.
When I'm not making music, I'm interested in learning, reading, watching the Discovery channel. Also I enjoy being a father and just being a business man.
My ultimate goal in life is to set a foundation for my children and show them they could do anything they put their mind too. I also want to become a major force in the industry and to be able to live comfortably.
I like the fact I can make my own rules. I can meet new people and network as well as sell music and make fans along the way. It feels good to receive accolades for doing something positive.
Advice I have for those perusing their dreams and goals are to believe in yourself. Keep positive people around you and people who will encourage you to work hard and who will actually support your movement. Always try and keep a clear head and never allow negativity to enter your circle. Work hard, and put God first.
