During that summer of 2010 while looking for another school to attend Koahi began to exploit his talent to write and rhyme. Writing poetry and writing life experiences along with his point of view of things made it easier for him to write how he felt and his thoughts down on paper. Becoming comfortable with writing, in no time he began to record. Having to go back to school, after a semester Koahi ended up withdrawing from school and coming back home along with beginning his music career fulltime. Influenced by musicians and rappers like Bob Marley, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G., 2Pac, and even older groups Earth Wind & Fire and The O’Jays etc. Not knowing what the music has to offer or what it’s going to bring, koahi just wanted to do something that he loved. Being a true student of the music and sensitive to everything going on around him, gives him the humble mentality to be patient and keep working hard, bringing forth cultural and relevant music. “What I’ve learned on the basketball court is what I apply to my music, and that’s what gives me the persistence to keep pushing and wanting to mold my talents to the best of my ability”.
