Amante' is a fresh breath to Hip-Hop, an escape from the norm, with smooth and clear vocals mixed with rhythmic blues and catchy hooks. Amante' hails from Lithonia, Ga right on the outskirts of Atlanta. His ambition is to be the first emcee from his city to achieve critical and commercial success. Amante' is ambitious, hungry, and is a student of Hip-Hop as well as a fan. His musical influences include Al Green, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur, Isley Brothers, Prince, Outkast, Tribe Called Quest, Nas, and several others.
Amante' is a star who only needs an opportunity to accomplish his set goal, which is to bring "True" feel good Hip-Hop back. The present state in Hip-Hop is stagnant due to redundant songs. Hip-Hop has always thrived when innovative artists challenged society and its set standards. By utilizing his Hip-Hop voice, Amante intends to speak for the people of his generation by going against the grain with real, marketable music.
Amante has finished recording his introductory mix album, Street Politiks Vol. I: Amante 4 Prez, hosted by Legion of Doom DJís Black Bill Gates.
