“SniperShot… making real music about real life issues.”
SniperShot is an up and coming rapper and producer in the music industry, representing his hometown of East Dallas. With his own unique delivery of hip-hop and ear for good music, he is setting himself apart from the rest of the pack. SniperShot has more to talk about in his music than the stereotypical rapper. He is a real, to the point lyricist, who will tell it as it is and believing that life is too short to sugar coat the truth. SniperShot was once a great athlete, being an all-state football player in High School and excelling in soccer, yet he turned down numerous college soccer scholarships and chose a path of selling drugs. “I was senior class Vice President, I got a special award at graduation that is still given out annually at my high school, MVP of the football team, colleges watching me play soccer, but outside of school I was selling and using a shit ton of drugs.” Having hustled in East Dallas from a young age, combined with a five-year stint in South Austin, SniperShot’s history comes out in his music. After having numerous run-ins with the “laws” a.k.a. the police, a turning point came on Christmas Eve 2005, when SniperShot walked away from a dangerous car accident, flipping his Honda Prelude multiple times at a high speed. After years of legal battle, and luckily avoiding numerous criminal charges, SniperShot began a long transformation towards becoming a more legal and healthier individual and eventually quitting the dope game for good. SniperShot is pursuing the legal route and showing the world his skills on the microphone, while conveying a more positive message with his words and in his life. “We are all on a path of learning and growth, and I am no different” says SniperShot.
