Figured Iemits that vibe, it's brassbound, ferocious and presents a slightly distorted sound. Coming from a family tree full of musicians, Buddy Ryan's exposure to the music scene started at a very young age. He was drawn to music due to his appreciation and love for words, ultimately becoming that guy who loved language, arts, and poetry classes in school.
He considers himself more of a songwriter than a rapper, but due to genre limitations, hip-hop is where you can say exactly what you mean, and that is where his artistic flow is fuelled. Whether you're sitting in a recliner or dipping in a phantom, Figured I appeals to both occasions, so press play and keep up to date with Buddy Ryan on Instagram.
