How did you get started? Tell us everything!
I’m Cam The Artisan. I got started young, writing my first rap at 6, just being around my family and listening to some Ludacris songs around the house. Over the years, I’d pick it up and put it down but I got really into it my freshman year of high school. I took it seriously around 2016 and it’s been up ever since. I’m from Atlanta I grew up listening to Ludacris & Eminem the most also a lot of Michael Jackson, Prince, and Debarge. The biggest moments of my career thus far have been Kennesaw States homecoming & a sold-out album release party.
