Legit is a 19 year old emcee born and bred in Chicago, IL. Being an avid fan of hip-hop music and culture, Legit was strongly influenced to start rapping during his freshman year in high school. Legit offers a unique sound of soulful beats mixed with lyrical poignancy influenced by wordsmiths such as Lupe Fiasco and Eminem. With a clear cut mastery of diction, delivery, and flow, Legit brings conscious substance with inherent wisdom seemingly beyond his years. Legit also founded the rap group Renaissance with his longtime friend and fellow emcee Eli, and has since expanded the group into a collective of rhyme-spitters, vocalists, poets, producers, artists, and patrons of this beloved genre. He recently released his most cohesive body of work titled "Coloring Outside The Lines", and since then has been featured on many blogs, including a spot as a freshman to look for on the Chicago based blog Fake Shore Drive.
