Raised in Jamaica Queens, New York, Focus The Truth is fond of cartoons and Hip Hop. Focus uses his love of visual and creative arts to recreate lyrical experiences that transcend generations. MC’ing since the age of 14, Focus has learned the power of lyrics and how they can be used to deliver a message, rather than present largely untrue tales to reinforce stereotypes like a lot of Hip Hop these days. His tenacity in the music industry is a force to be reckoned with. He started out his career battle rapping and writing poetry.
