Whitenoise, born on June 11th, 1994, was raised in the projects of North Toledo, Ohio. Heavily surrounded by drugs and gang activity, he was influenced by what most mainstream rappers talk about in their lyrics today. As a child, Whitenoise enjoyed creating visual images and writing stories. Brought up in nothing more than a small home with two other siblings, and neither parents are working, he found himself consumed by the environment. At a young age, it was no surprise for someone to be introduced to weapons in “The Mud” also known as Toledo, Ohio. Toledo is known by this name mainly for their international baseball league team “The Toledo Mud Hens”. Living carelessly with no supervision, Whitenoise would roam the streets everyday disregarding his responsibilities to attend school. By doing so, he failed the third grade three times. At the age of ten on his third year failing, CSB stepped in after a night of fighting between his parents resulting in his father going to jail. Whitenoise’s mother suffered from paranoid schizophrenia which did not allow her to be able to take care of him and his other two siblings. Luckily he was smart enough to get a hold of his aunt Debra Dickens, who is happily married and now goes by the name Debra Rodriguez. She took him in along with his brother and sister. All three where put in Catholic schools where Whitenoise was placed back in his rightful grade. From there until the age of eighteen was a point of direction in his life where he obtained education and discipline. Graduating out of high school, Whitenoise was extremely unsure on his future. He ran away from home, but during this time he managed to find himself. Staying out all night partying with his friends, he discovered he could emcee over his favorite artists instrumentals. He was inspired by artists such as 2 Pac, Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Jay Z. He developed a deep love for the culture because it’s what he could relate to back when he lived with his actual parents. He loved art, in fact Whitenoise created each idea and design for his tattoos, his most famous one on his collar bone stating “Remember Where You Come From” was made after finding his love for hip-hop and the memories he shared on the north end of Toledo. He also has gauged his ears (also known as Plugged or Plugs). He claims to have gauged his ears in memory of the Native Americans who died for the civilizations we have today. Whitenoise attended college, but soon dropped out because he was making no progress and not getting anywhere with his music. He also felt lost at the time after his dad passing away on September 4th 2014. His destiny soon took its course and he was introduced to the information he was looking for to succeed. In 2015, Whitenoise released a song called 419 which is no longer available to the general public. This catchy up toned beat caught the eye of locals because of the chorus which is Toledo, Ohio’s area code 419. By distributing this song he was able to gain knowledge of the industry and soon found himself on big name sites such as MTV and VEVO. After realizing the new era of hip-hop and modern technology, Whitenoise took down all his old music to start a fresh new album in 2017. By getting his artist pages on every digital music store and gaining a local buzz, Whitenoise caught the attention of NBMG group member Nuk who won producer of the year at the Ohio Hip Hop Awards in 2015. From there the two have been working together to organize the group. Whitenoise focused on each artist in the group making sure they have all their music properly released, and even created the groups website. With major artists in the group like Stink Bomb, two year winner for best male artist at the Ohio Hip Hop Awards between 2015 – 2016, it was important for him to have a strong image. NBMG (North Boy Music Group) managed to win best group in 2016 at the Ohio Hip Hop Awards after a successful year of releasing music. The group is now releasing a new mixtape “The Streetz of Rage II”. In 2017, Whitenoise started off the year with his new single “Sold Not Told” preparing for his new album produced by Nuk, dropping later on in the year. Raw images and visual affects are going to bring his creativity to life. Whitenoise’s biggest strengths are his broad imagination and powerful lyricism. His future goals are to get on the XXL Freshmen Magazine, hit the top 100 on the Billboards, win a Grammy and sell a Diamond Album. He has high expectations and is very confident in his music and work ethic. Whitenoise is a true artist and has the potential to be one of the greatest to ever grab the mic. He takes pride in writing his own music and creating his own graphic designs. Whitenoise says he creates music to express his emotions and to inspire others to follow their dreams.
