Straying away from labels like, “conscious rapper,” Sprado would rather be known as the hip hop artist that uses the power of the platform to reach millions of people for a positive purpose. In fact, his motto is, “Purpose in Motion.” Having a purpose and using it to inspire, to him, is more rewarding than any dollar amount. Working on his first solo project, Sprado is determined to open the door for positivity within his music, while also encouraging the youth to stay away from drugs, violence, and becoming a statistic. While being unafraid to evolve with the consistent change in hip hop, Sprado is without a doubt destined for sure greatness and fame doing it his way.
