Lyricism of the 1990s with a modern rapping style, Lou is an amazing talent with many of unexposed talents/
Bio: St. Louis has had marginal success in the world of hip hop. There have been some artists who have earned major success while others have tried and floundered in the masses. Besides Nelly, St. Louis artists haven't received the long standing praise and accolades that many artists have achieved from other regions of the country. However, Lou Streets believes he is the one artist who can overcome that recent history. Born Tyrece Warner in 1984, he was mostly raised by his mother in a single parent household. Being the only male in the home didn't provide a lot of guidance so most of his lessons were learned through experience as a youth. Developing a love for sports at an early age Lou always wanted to be a professional basketball player. Coming from a family full of athletic men it seemed like the natural choice to pursue a career in sports. Around the age of 13 is when he began rapping. It was mostly because he looked up to his older cousins without awareness that it was something he would develop a passion for. By the time Lou was in high school is when he started actually writing out his lyrics. On the bus after school is when there would be battles here and there. Most of the time he would stay out of them unless being begged by friends to rap who knew it was something he did in private. In college at the age of 21 his lyrical skills started really advancing at a much more rapid pace. However, his love for sports was still his top priority until he tore his ACL during the first football game of his senior year. With all the free time recovering off the field he continued to write raps more often and crushed the competition in the first Battle of the Mics held by one of the school's fraternities. Ironically, he found out his boy Germayne rapped. They were close friends for like three years before discovering that one another penned lyrics frequently. Soon after that finding Lou purchased a mic and recording software. With the ability to now record his own raps and the competitive nature of him and Germayne in the booth, songs were being done constantly and the talent was becoming more obvious. Once people started responding to his songs and telling Lou he should really consider putting out music is when it became serious. After years of recording and just sharpening his skills, Lou Streets feels that he is prepared to make his own mark in the world of hip hop. With an extremely unique love for the craft in itself Lou Streets hopes that listeners can tell from the very first song that his style isn't what you would expect of a St. Louis emcee. His witty metaphors and fearlessness of putting his own personal experiences in his music provokes all listeners to ask the same question, "Is he really from St. Louis...?"
