Al, born in Baltimore, Md. where his passion for music blossomed. Al's talent in spoken word poetry started from reading Tupac's "The Rose That Grew from Concrete" which later encouraged him to start creating music. Al's sound is rooted in hiphop but it's truly genre-less having influences such as Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, The Beatles , Bobby Womack, Michael Jackson, Andre 3000, Kid Cudi, Maze & Frankie Beverly, and many others. Al has been performing for years, he learned how to tap dance at an early age and also competed in dance battles as a pre-teen. Al is known to be quite the performer, always energetic.
If you ever get a chance to experience one of Al's live shows you'll notice him using the word 'Swooz'. Here's a little more behind that:
"Swooz is a way of life it's defined as expressingcompassion, love, and gratitude." - Al Rogers Jr.
Al has been featured in online publications such as Vice, Noisey, Impose, Saint Heron, and Pigeons and Planes to name a few.
