He demonstrates delivery and charisma to add to his versatilty. He raps fast and slow and it could happen when you least expect it. He always drops a hot jewel in each of his soulful songs, especially messages your not used to hearing. Dating back to when the hip hop image was about expensive cars and being hard. Relic learned to rap but believed in being completely different than what he already heard on the radio and seen in the music videos although he admired the talent and success of artists such as Snoop Dogg, Nas, Wu-Tang, Notorious B.I.G, 50 cent, E40, Ice Cube, Scarface, Tupac, and Jay Z. RELIC is on the rise as one of L.A's top performing hip hop artists with the use of rapid fire punchlines, heavy 808 bass mixed with loud strings and genuine lyrics from start to finish.

It didn't get the commercial success he was hoping to receive. RELIC is quickly gaining press and local popularity from his latest project on iTunes "I Made It Better".
