A definition of someone going after what they want as honestly as possible is sincerity. Usually, when someone sincere in their efforts attempts to connect, they end up with long-term success. So far, this has been the case for S!NCERE, a rapper who grew up in South Carolina. Currently making a name for himself in Georgia, S!NCERE feels he is on the cusp of greatness.
S!NCERE is now located in Austell, Georgia, where he is advancing his rap career. Since the age of nine years old, S!NCERE has been writing music. This writing soon led to S!NCERE pursuing a full-time career as an artist. The ambitious rapper has since had the opportunity to record and release new music, but has more tracks in store.
With his songs already getting radio play on such internet radio stations as Radio Invasion, S!NCERE is taking steps in the right direction. S!NCERE recently spoke to Hip Hop Vibe about his upbringing in South Carolina and what inspires him to make music. No pun intended, but S!NCERE lived up to his name during his interview.
