With influences rooted through the voice of Bob Marley, E-fav was bathed in the reggae sound at the drop of the needle since as early as he can remember. The Detroit bred "powerful mind" was exposed to hip hop during the classic 90's era where he was influenced by music from different parts of the country; not just Detroit, where he came up on Slum Village, Phat Kat, Royce and Em. His ears were spoiled by West coast hip hop; Snoop and the Dogg Pound. Southern playalistic cadillac funky sounds of the South, and East Coast vibes provided by Nas and ATCQ. E-fav's biggest influences on his career are J Dilla, 2-Pac, Kweli, Mos Def, Gil Scott-Heron, Madlib, and of course Bob Marley. E-fav's diverse influences are prevalent in his signature dynamic delivery and heavy hitting lyricism, jotting rhymes at age 13. 1/4th of the legendary Clear Soul Forces he has shown growth with each step taken, and is looking forward to his continued journey in music through dedication, family, and WILL.
