His rap moniker may be “Wispers,” but his life and his music speak volumes – to one day echo loudly through the Hip Hop halls of fame.
Wispers knows hardship and struggle all too well, In the past he’s had repeated misfortunes with the law, through which he became all too familiar with prison, and subsequently the loss of his brother to senseless gun violence. However, despite the odds and on a mission to deliver his contribution to Hip Hop, this Boston-born rapper has overcome his hardships and is determined to persevere far beyond his environment and previous situational circumstances – with music as his refuge and Hip Hop as his worldly savior.

Growing up, Wispers had his run-ins with the law. His mother tried relocating to various states in effort to try to give him a chance at a life different than the one he knew in the streets. Having lived in areas such as Boston, New York and Florida, Wispers attributes the diverse exposure to the overall appeal of his music.
“Many people live their entire lives and never leave their state, city, or even their block. By moving me around, my mom showed me another world, and you can hear that in my music. My story is mine, but it can speak to more people than just the ones in my neighborhood,” says Wispers.
