Warchyld is an exceptional artist for all of the right reasons. His musical ear and soulful upbringing gave him a sound unlike no one out today, while his trials and tribulations have given him an insight and grit that compares to none.
Through his music, Warchyld learned how to speak about the streets without glorifying them, how to show people his feelings without giving in to them and how to move people's hearts while stimulating their minds. The universal appeal of his music is broadened by his emphasis on positiveness without preaching, and if an anthem is needed he has it ready.
