Cornaztone’s experiences range from life in the lower middle class to college student, homeless, Soldier, Prisoner to businessman. His music is often less braggadocious and instead more reflective. He’s often seen waxing poetic about finding balance between the black market the stock market; love and hate; reflection and having an eye towards the future. Never one to shy away from his own personal turmoil as fuel, he often times leaves even the most private experiences in the recording booth for the public ear.
Moving around between the East Coast in the self has given him several musical influences. Among his influences are Jay Z, Joe Budden, Rick Ross, Fabolous, The Lox, T.I., Jim Jones, System of a Down, Lloyd Banks, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Korn, Skyzoo, Yoko Kanno and Young Jeezy.
“For me music is a way to not only express myself, but it’s a way for me to cope with different situations in life. Whether they be good or bad every event.. every important moment seems to have a soundtrack. I believe when we listen to artist as we experience life those artist become a part of our lives. It almost feels like those people are their inspiring or reflecting or even going through situations with you through their music. I once read something like this: People always want to know what songs mean but they don’t mean anything they express and it’s your interpretation of those expressions that give it meaning.”
