BRENDEN is a rapper, songwriter, and producer from Brooklyn, NY. He got started early on with music in church choirs and gospel music. It was in his early teen years where he was introduced to greats like Jay- Z, Notorious B.I.G, Wu Tang, Nas, and many other golden era hip-hop artists. It was then around 14 where he started to transition from writing poetry to raps. Speaking about poverty, his negative environment, and telling his story he managed to find solace in music. Staying true to his eclectic aesthetic , BRENDEN blends rap music with soul, traditional 90’s east coast music, EDM, gospel along with new school sounds. An ever evolving, artist, and creative, BRENDEN seeks to influence the youth while challenging the genre and the status quo.
