About this project
Philadelphia native Lyn Charles is fresh on the scene and wishes to command a spot as a recognized artist.
Born Lyndon Charles Powell on May 26, 1989, Charles lived in North Philadelphia until he was 3 years old. Lyn Charles then moved to West Philadelphia, where he still resides although his family moved to the Olney section of Philadelphia. He attended St. Joseph’s University.
Charles has been rapping since he was 6 years old, when his first grade teacher attempted to suspend him for his rhyme book. After realizing that one book could gather so much attention, he knew there was a power in words. Growing up, Lyn Charles was also exposed to the latest and most current music by his older brother. Charles’s attention was grabbed when Notorious Big and 2Pac reached the pinnacles of their careers. Charles liked both artists for various reasons—he valued 2Pac for his deep lyrical content and Big for his raw and amazing delivery. Ever since, Lyn Charles was born. Growing up in poverty and not yet escaping it, the “struggle” has been the focus of most of his music, but he also focuses on past relationships he has had and ones he would like to embark on. Charles has a love for fashion sparked by the fusion of the urban and foreign fashion movements. His sleek style is specifically shaped by Billionaire Boys Club, Bape, Mcm, Louis Vuitton and Japanese influenced clothing. Charles is not a hipster; he is an innovator.
Lyn Charles started out recording in his bedroom with the bear necessities (a macbook pro, a mic and logic 8). Then, upon purchasing more home studio equipment, he ran into a producer at Dre and Vidal’s studio 609 in Philadelphia. The friendship that he acquired from studio 609 producer Kung Fu started the Lyn Charles saga. Recently, Charles has completed his debut studio album entitled American Tragedy (http://www.datpiff.com/Lyn-Charles-American-Tragedy-mixtape.229070.html) . With features from artists like Big K.R.I.T, Kendrick Lamar, Philadelphia Freeway, and BJ the Chicago Kid, Lyn Charles wishes to command the "top spot". Also the project features multi gammy award winning production from Vidal Davis and other established producers such as: Kung Fu and Matrax.
Charles is currently an independent artist on his own label "LynandGreed", working on American Tragedy II.
