About the Album

A fusion of Afro Beat, Brazilian rhythms, and DC hip-hop vibes! 'Give a Little' takes you on a musical journey back to '96 when hand-me-down gear was the style, and young talents were trying to break into the scene. The song's lyrics narrate the story of a young artist's journey from insecurity to confidence, driven by a burning passion for music. With infectious beats, energetic rhymes, and a powerful message about the importance of practice and perseverance, 'Give a Little' captures the essence of three distinct musical cultures blending seamlessly into an unforgettable track that will have you nodding your head and moving your feet. So, turn up the volume, and let the rhythm take you on a ride through the vibrant streets of DC, the soulful vibes of Afro Beat, and the captivating melodies of Brazil. 'Give a Little' is a musical celebration of determination, self-discovery, and the universal language of music."
