A product of the hip-hop generation, Bleu’s storytelling first manifested itself in the form of rhythm and poetry as a rapper. He and his crew were local heroes, but sixteen bars limited his vision, so he changed up and took it to the next level.
From seeking that next level and stepping out of his comfort zone, Bleu learned that inspiration cannot be stifled and that evolution is imminent. If you are looking for raw, honest expression from the underground, you’ve found it in LaMont Anthony Wright.
Although Bleu’s family tree is peppered with a long line of story tellers, smack talkers and intellectuals, some of his early influences also came from works by Edgar Allen Poe, Orson Welles and Rod Sterling.
