5ive7even Music Group proudly presents their newest artist MPRFLIGHTRISK. Born in Decatur, G.A. and raised in Compton California, MPR is turning his life story and struggles into strength and victory.
MPR began making music 2016 while in a work release program. After being released from prison and losing his mother, it was time to elevate. “It was a very difficult time in my life but it forced me to grow. The faith my mom had in me and my music inspired me to chase my dream no matter what obstacles I faced. I had some extra money set aside so I decided to lock in on my music. I put a song together and it sounded good! I received a lot of positive feedback from my Instagram followers and that gave me the confidence to keep going.”
Being of Puerto Rican and Creole descent, MPR’s style of rapping is quite unique. “Whats sets my style apart from others is that I naturally possess that island sound mixed with that hood vibe. I can rap so many different ways and easily change up my flow. And I am an aspiring actor so I incorporate different impersonations in my raps too. My music is also therapeutic. I rap the truth and give advice. It’s comforting to my audience because they can relate to my story and my struggle. I feel it’s important to send a message through your music. We need a balance of respect and love in the culture, not just negativity.”
This music industry is not for the weak. It takes laser focus, determination and an awesome team to succeed. MPR congratulates himself on being the ultimate artist with the support of his #AE team. “I have the talent, the look, the sound and a personality like no other. Even if I’m not having the best day, I can put on a smile, be on 10 and turn up! I know what it’s going to take to get me where I need to be and I have the drive to make it happen. I have been through hell and back but I refuse to quit. My work ethic, my vision and passion are unmatched. You have to work hard or you will lose! My goal is to have my family COMPLETELY situated…houses, cars, businesses, my niece’s and nephew’s tuition in cd accounts, etc… I want to put everyone positive around me in a position to win. Money, Power and Respect are major keys.”
Music is just the beginning for this mogul in the making. MPR has been working vigorously for years doing everything he can as an artist and an entrepreneur, learning the business and political sides of the music industry. He confesses that if he wasn’t making music he would be pursuing a career in acting and building a tattoo/barbershop business. “Today, artists who come from where we come from (the struggle, the streets, homelessness etc…) and become successful don’t do enough to help guide, tutor and mentor the youth. When I’m where I need to be as an artist, I’m going to help in every way I possibly can. I know exactly how it feels to need someone behind you pushing and encouraging you or someone to just take a chance on you and believe in you. I want to be that person to give other artists a chance and speak positivity into the youth, not the artist who glorifies drugs and guns.The younger generation needs to know there’s more to life than jail and the streets, because tomorrow is not promised and neither is today.”
MPR’s many musical influences include GUCCI MANE, NIPSEY HUSSLE, KEVIN GATES, YOUNG THUG, COACH K, P, QC, LIL BABY, POLO G, YG , JADE and BIG BANK. “These guys are some of my favorite artists because I admire their vision and the strategic way they move. But that dude MPRFLIGHTRISK is the one! He pop more shit than an old man with a beer can in his hands! (Laughing)
MPRFLIGHTRISK has two singles streaming on all digital music platforms, “Yns” and “BRAINFREEZE” Feat. 1500Yungin. He is currently working on his debut EP and a video documentary/Vlog both set to drop this year. Look out for the visuals to “BRAINFREEZE” coming soon.
Until then, his grind continues. “I just want everyone around me who is working so hard and keeps asking themselves, ‘When will it pay off?’, to know that our time has come. What these record labels are searching for in an artist…I AM HIM! The world will hear about me and watch my rise to the top very soon. I am MPRFLIGHTRISK and we Are now boarding…”
