Lyrical hip-hop artist & songwriter
Lyrically inclined; elevate your music, elevate your mind
Bakes is a Bay Area-grown, San Diego-based lyrical genius with prowess as a witty and prolific songwriter. Crafting optimistic, introspective, and intelligent rhymes set him apart from other artists as his versatile style allows him to explore a wide range of subjects and topics in songs. Audiences say Bakes reminds them of a modern hip-hop purist with his lyricism and poetic wording. With accolades such as #3 on VEVO’s “Incoming Hip-Hop” playlist with his music video for “Divine Timing,” GQ’s “10 Songs to Sweat To” with his song “Effortless” and a placement on Lord Sear’s New Artist Spotlight, Bakes is also featured in top tier music blogs such as The Source Magazine, HipHopWeekly, and Thisis50. His humble beginnings writing and recording out of his college apartment in 2008 have led to him performing in nightclubs, festivals, and opening performances for billboard top-charting artists.This year, he plans to release a new solo album.
