Rahmad Jemiah Hawkins—was born November 13, 1990 in Buffalo, New York, to a talented musical family. His father is Process from Process and the Doo Rags, who was recently inducted into the Buffalo Hall of Fame. He was once a back-up singer for the great Rick James who became Rahmad’s Godfather. His aunt was one of the great R&B jazz singers, Dodo Green. Throughout his childhood, he was surrounded by some of the great musicians of their day. As a result, Rahmad grew up listening to soulful R&B harmony that certainly influences his writing style today.
Slyce started writing when he was in high school as a way to get through some hard times. Those rhymes turned into music when his brother helped him buy a Lexicon Breakout Box and Cool Edit Pro. From then on, Rahmad could be found in his bedroom closet recording music at all hours.
Today he is making music his career. Influenced by his family and some of the greats like Rakim, Nas, Jay-Z, Naughty by Nature, Kris Kross, Ice Cube and others, he has recorded over one hundred songs. His sound is soulful raw and fresh hip hop. He now makes his home in Atlanta, Georgia and is touring around the southeast. Rahmad just released the first single on his new album produced by Grammy award-winner DJ Pain 1 called The Sorrow. Look for it on ITunes, Amazon music, Google Music and all of the streaming sites. You can find Slyce on his website atwww.slycemusic.org.

Who are your top 5 influences?
Music in general, Michael Jackson, Rick James, My dad, 2pac, Jay-Z. In hip hop, Nas, Jay-Z, Naughty by Nature, Ice Cube, 2pac and I have my reasoning for those. Nas paints pictures, Jay-Z is witty, his lyricism is cool and he has this aura. Naughty by Nature represents hip hop, Ice Cube is raw and 2pac is passionate and you can hear it through the lyrics, voice tone and quality of song.
When are your new projects coming out?
Currently working on new material and it will be done soon. I want to put out a classic. I have 3 new singles that I really enjoy and are ready to go.
What helped you get into music?
My family. My father played a variety of music in the house when I was young and my brother introduced me to Hip hop and the culture.
What is one thing you would tell your fans?
My music is for you, the fans. My objective is to connect with you and relate to you. I want you to be able to put my music on when you’re going through hard times or whatever the situation is and be able to feel comfort.
What are your biggest goals for 2016?
