*”I am determined to place myself among the elite in Rap Music and I will let no one outwork me or stand in the way of me achieving my goals in life.”
These powerful words are the foundation for a young man out of Milwaukee Wisconsin’s gang infested slums who records under the name of Petti Hendrix.
These are also the words of a young man who is “homeless.”
Hendrix, a rap/rock recording artist, currently filming the TV pilot known as “The Product,” blasted onto the Milwaukee and Mid-West club circuit during the last few years and during that time his name has continued to grow within the underground music scene based upon his energetic rap style and charisma on stage and via the recording booth with the various material he has released on the internet.
Not wanting to go into detail about the reasons for his homelessness at this point in his young life, Hendrix bluntly stated:
“All that matters to me now is to let the world hear my music. That is what I live for. I feel I have the ability to affect people in a positive way because they will feel my passion and they will feel the truth in my lyrics. I go hard with what I do and ain’t no other artist ever gonna outwork me. Whatever lead me to this point in life is unimportant now. I’m locked on the future. There’s a plan for me.”
Deeply involved in that plan is, Mr. Kimble “KB” Wheeler who is the Mid-West music marketing/promotion executive who first discovered the young artist during one of his shows in the Milwaukee area.
Mr. Wheeler was so impressed with what he witnessed on stage from the young artist that immediately after the show he arranged a meeting so he could open up a discussion about the two of them working together.
During the meeting the two young men came to find out that they had the exact same outlook on business matters and shortly thereafter, they worked together to structure an recording agreement that would eventually take Hendrix to the Southern California based independent record company known as ToneStruck Records which initially came into the music industry via a world-wide distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records a few years back.
Mr. Wheeler also was able to present video footage of a live performance from the artist to a film production company executive who was developing a TV pilot based upon the lives of developing artists/filmmakers from inner cities across the country and that executive was so intrigued by the young Rap artist and his story, that he scrapped the company’s recently filmed debut episode of the show and started filming the new segment on Petti Hendrix”.
Currently recording his debut album entitled “Rebel God” for his ToneStruck Records debut release in 2016, Petti Hendrix is focused on one thing and that one thing is to record the most “dynamic debut album for any artist in his genre of music” and to pour his heart and soul into each performance he does.
