I come from Kansas City, Missouri. I was introduced to poetry at a very young age and being the son of two very outspoken and forthcoming parents, I never had any problem with saying how I feel or showing off my talents. When I was in high school, I began a fulfilling music life with friends that shared the same interests in music, politics, and direction. As time progressed, the group was stretched thin and eventually we all moved on from a collective to doing solo ventures. Now, here I am... The rapper, actor, poet, producer, director, and overall artist.

From the mailroom to "Move," to "One A.M." and beyond, Diverse innovates. A self-described poet, his rhymes are true. Shunning the pseudo-hard stance taken by some emcees in favor of everyday human experience, Diverse consistently ups the ante. Over the course of numerous releases and collaborations, his rhymes have shown that flash and substance don't necessarily have to be adversaries.

"Move" was released on Chocolate Industries in 2001, receiving a strong response from critics and listeners alike. A collaboration with Mos Def on the first installment of "Urban Renewal Program" followed soon thereafter; "Wylin' Out" would go on to dominate college radio airwaves for the better part of the summer. The "Certified/Build" 12" was enough to keep heads happy for a minute, but soon the pressure would be on.


Diverse's debut full-length "One A.M." dropped in the latter part of 2003 to critical acclaim, featuring collaborations with Jean Grae, Prefuse 73 and Madlib among others. The tour appearances and showcases that followed packed venues, seeing fans channel the same charismatic energy that keeps our guy in the studio late at night.

With a grueling tour schedule and verbal delivery that would make UPS envious, Diverse has still found time to collaborate with other artists and work on fresh releases of his own. Be on the lookout for the next full-length, "Round About," in your area sometime next year.
