For starters I was born in Puerto Rico (hence the Spanish name). I grew up in the States though and was raised in a Christian home. Everyone in my family does something that involves music. Not necessarily professionally, but we are all very musical. I am not strictly a "hip hop head," because I love all types of music which I try to incorporate as much as I can into what I do. So needless to say my, music is very diverse.
The name is Humble Tip, I been ministering ever since da King entered da kid, through my walk, but I've been spittin for 4 years now. Man there ain't enough room on this page for me to give yall the genesis of how things began, without taking up the whole page all I can say is that the rap thing was never my plan. I originally planned to be a sports agent and then I got to Liberty (LU stand up) and God totally redirected my entire life for His Glory, so um cool as Zach Morris with that. I’m from Capitol Heights, Merlin (yeah, we don’t pronounce it Maryland). Man, I really just have a desire, a passion, a hunger to have God use me to evangelize and build up the inner city and urban community; but not exclusively to only them, anybody who want it can get. God don’t care who get saved. He want em all, so I want em all.
I started rapping at the age of 10, it all started when my brother's friends would come over and rap on a tape recorder. One day they had an idea to teach me how to rap and ever since then I have not stopped. You can say I'm a type of guy that loves to learn.
My name is Bryan "Braille" Winchester. I was born in Portland, OR and have also lived in New Jersey and Los Angeles. I've been rapping since before I had facial hair, and now I can grow a mustache of Tom Selleck proportions. I've been blessed with the opportunity to travel around the world sharing music and "The IV Edition" (my newest album) is my forth solo record. I'm also a married man (6 years!) and I have a baby girl named Gabriella. WORD
Rapzilla:You are currently working on a new album, can you tell me more about it?Viktory: yes, it's still in the early stages... i haven't selected a release date quite yet, but... im really pleased wit hthe sound of the music. It's called Son of the King. I know alot of people have used King in their titles... TI, Rob Hodge, etc, but, I didn't select that name based on trends, i chose that name for it's spiritual connotation over just aesthetics
