Black Steel (VIRMYMENSE)

Black Steel was born and raised in Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn. As a child he was introduced to Hip Hop culture by his uncle Rob who was always walking around spitting the lyrics to The Sugar hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”, Grand Master Flash & The Furious Five’s “The Message”, and Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock”. Black Steel was hooked! In the 80’s he started break dancing, drawing graffiti, and writing his own Rap songs. Black Steel was later influenced by Hip Hop icons such as Rakim, Kool G. Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Notorious B.I.G., and 2Pac just to name a few. Black Steel went through a lot of names and ended with Black Steel because he sees himself as one of the hardest African American (Black) rappers out there. Black Steel continues to write music (Hip Hop and R & B) and poetry. He now manages and promotes artists and shows in Atlanta, Ga. Most recent accolade, managing Creative Minds Atlanta an expansion of Creative Minds NYC open mic showcase produced by Emoshun B. Campbell.
